Natural and raw wood is a huge trend in the home this year and continues to grow in strength, thanks to the introduction of styles such as hygge and the continual popularity of the country kitchen, but this sophisticated style doesn’t come without its flaws – natural wood requires treatments, care and ongoing maintenance.
Fortunately, with recent developments in technology and materials, it is becoming easier to get the great look of natural timber without using pure wood. Ca’Pietra have recently launched the new Lexington collection of porcelain planks that near-perfectly resemble the look of real wood, but with all the practical qualities of hardwearing porcelain.
The planks will not shrink and twist – as is often found with nautral wood – they can also be used in combination with underfloor heating and in wet areas. They are also smaller in both height and length compared to standard wooden planks, which means they can be arranged in an interesting herringbone design as well as a classic straight formation. The collection includes four different colour finishes, including Ciliego (featured) which balances a beautiful combination of chestnut and mahogany tones.Ca’Pietra | capietra.com
