The Financial Times’ style magazine titled ‘How to Spend It’ (2 July 2011) published an article introduced with the words “Designers are turning to wood to create bespoke and artful kitchens that replace the white-box formula with striking timber textures.” The trend appears to be inclusive of most temperate hardwood species, with special mention given to walnut, maple, cherry, pippy-oak, painted beech, ripple-sycamore, and olive-ash.
