Like you, our mailboxes get filled with catalogs that we love to leaf through for inspiration. One that recently caught our eye is from Restoration Hardware in which there is the most gorgeous wood-framed mirror. The Mansard mirror was inspired by late 19th century architectural windows. It’s so unique, and a perfect example of how beautiful and timeless wood is in home design.
Through the years, wood as a decorative material has evolved and today can be found in every look and style from traditional to very contemporary, and exotic to very rustic and rough. Today, it’s back in vogue with designers as a way to deliver warmth, and as an element that mixes well with furnishings of any style.
Like the Mansard mirror, Mannington’s Longwood” laminate flooring (in color Driftwood here) can do design magic in rooms — while delivering the look of wood in an eco-friendly way (it contains over 70% recycled content).
What’s surprising about Longwood is that, although it looks like real wood, it’s actually laminate flooring.
Laminate is pretty new as far as flooring types go – it was introduced to the United States in the mid-1990’s. Laminate has a stunning natural look, yet doesn’t require the use of real wood to create and it’s also very durable so there’s less upkeep than with real wood.To learn more about what laminate flooring is, click here.
Wood is a warm, classic look every home needs–especially yours.
