May 30 / 2023

Whether it’s the rich grains of oak, the smooth elegance of walnut, or the rustic allure of reclaimed timber, the trend of using wood in furniture design promises both aesthetic excellence and a connection to nature. Spanish furniture companies have always excelled in their mastery of wood, drawing upon their long-standing experience to create exceptional pieces. With a rich heritage in woodworking, these companies have honed their craftsmanship over generations, perfecting techniques that bring out the inherent beauty of wood.


Wood reimagined: a timeless journey to the future

Wood, with its timeless appeal and eco-friendly qualities, reclaimed its position as a prime material for exhibiting brands. It embodied not only sustainability but also carried profound ancestral connotations, evoking a sense of utopia. The prevailing trend celebrated the innate beauty of wood, with finishes that preserved its natural essence, allowing the grain to take centre stage. The designs embraced minimalist aesthetics, gracefully incorporating delicate curves achieved through the mastery of traditional craftsmanship.
