We always keep a keen eye on our Northern European friends in Finland, Sweden, and Norway to see what is trending in the design world and are excited to see sustainable and decorative wood continue to dominate the interior and exterior design market. We are also excited to see colour starting to trend. The term “Scandi Colour” has become part of the vernacular with events like “Durat Talks 2019 - The Impact of Colour”, kicking off this January. Look at brands like Koskisen, with its high-grade plywood that incorporates pops of color while staying true to the natural wood grain, as well as Durat solid surface, with its brilliant colors and sustainable backstory. Both materials are produced in Finland and are readily available in the US.
