Contemporary Asian design

Design focus: Modern Country

This is the third newsletter/blogs in our design focused series where we show how versatile live edge pieces can be.

We work with designers from all over North America and have seen some real defined styles that incorporate our products; West Coast Natural, Modern Country, Industrial Fusion and Contemporary Asian. Through these newsletters we will help define these styles and show our Live Edge pieces in each of these settings.

Interior designers create a ‘Contemporary Asian’ look with rich color combinations, clean lines and elements of the cultures of Japan, China, Vietnam, Thailand, and other prominent Eastern societies.

Large, solid wood slabs have been used in Asian inspired designs since the 1940’s.

We’ve picked through a few of our favourite Contemporary Asian pictures to help explain and further define the design style. Grab a cup of green tea and settle in to browse through the pictures of these modern, elegant pieces that have a distinct touch of the orient.
