Wood is a versatile product that suits all kinds of interiors, a specialist has commented.
The material has a “classic nature” and becomes more beautiful with age, which ensures its longevity, according to Clare Pascoe, director of Pascoe Interiors.
“Whether it be a simply designed vintage piece; a classic chair; stunning wide board oak flooring or intricate marquetry, wood has a key place in every interior,” she said.
Compared to other materials, wood offers the benefit of being able to coexist with modern innovations such as under-floor heating, Ms Pascoe continued.
She added that wood also has a natural flexibility and can be cut and shaped in many different ways, which makes it ideal for furniture.
Ms Pascoe’s comments come after Carpetright released figures showing group sales declined by 2.5 per cent.
Meanwhile, UK and Republic of Ireland sales are down by 0.9 per cent, with like-for-like sales registering a 3.4 per cent decline.
