One Fall design trend that we are really loving this season is warm wood tones. Whether in the building material, the furniture, or accessories you choose, this Fall is all about those rich welcoming hues you can only get from the grain of natural wood. Check out our ten inspirational examples for incorporating this Fall trend into your own home. See more fall trends like Gold, Brass, & Copper Accents and Comfortable Kitchens.

A COZY AND MODERN INDOOR-OUTDOOR BEDROOM IN BUENOS AIRES

ON THE ROCK

The Thom family built their cabin on an exposed postglacial archipelago in Canada’s windswept Georgian Bay. A view through the house shows not only how the roofline folds down across the interior, letting in air and sunlight, but also how beautiful reclaimed wood can be.

Also in the Thom family cabin, angled openings in the roofline function as both windows and vents, allowing views and cross-breezes. A dining table completes the nearly all-wood room.

RECLAIMED WOOD BY TERRAMAI

TerraMai's siding–redwood, teak, Douglas fir, or pine–is reclaimed from wine barrels and provides the beauty of aged hardwood without the guilt of clear-cutting (reclaiming about one million board feet of lumber saves a thousand acres of old-growth forest). On average, less embodied energy is used in its production than with other siding, and the wood has the nonwarping stability that comes with age.

SUSHI TABLE

If wood-clad walls are too big an undertaking, consider incorporating the warm wood trend by bringing in some quality furniture pieces. Conceived by Paul White and Dan Morgan, this table is made from a single piece of walnut with a live edge. The legs are attached via a mortise-and-tenon joint technique; a sliver of maple in the dowel is visible on the table surface. The table's inception began with creating a proper table for sushi for two, sitting on the floor in the Japanese style.

Block Chair by Sitskie Design Studio

BLOCK CHAIR

Riffing on the concept behind a pin-impression toy, the Los Angeles designer Adam Friedman came up with a seat whose solid walnut blocks conform to the sitter’s body thanks to the foam padding underneath them.

GEORGETOWN CAFE TABLE

Crafted with identical care and precision as its larger relations, the matched-grain solid cherry surface had a three-inch inset apron that still allows plenty of leg and elbow room.

EDO COFFEE TABLE

Low in profile, the Edo Coffee table could not be more simple. The wide, planked legs are hewn from solid cherry panels, then grain-matched and joined at a compound angle and polished to luminous softness. The result is a graceful balance of loft and mass, both modern and classic and sized to fit in any room.

OSTHEIMER WOODEN BEARS

The nice thing about this Fall trend is that you can accomplish it as simply as a few accessories. These Ostheimer wooden bears—handmade in Germany—would look right at home on a shelf or mantle or in the able hands of your little one.
