plywood interior design trend.

Au natural or with a colourful twist, there’s no question veneer will go far.


Plywood might look light as a feather, but make no mistake – this light-hued wood hides a distinctive strength and durability. Its warmth, texture and sustainability have also made plywood a firm favourite with designers. Iconic plywood designs, such as Penguin Donkey, have been in production for 70 years. But while these classic plywood designs remain popular, several contemporary pieces also promise to become collectables. For a playful take on ply this summer, we suggest picking creations with a fun pop of primary colour. But that said, au natural or with a colourful twist, there’s no question veneer will go far.
