Exotic wood slabs are perfect to use for tables. Adding some legs and protective coating are fairly simple, and the end result is something entirely unique and incredibly beautiful. The great thing about exotic wood is that it comes in all colors and grain types. It is possible to get something that will work perfectly with the already established style and color palate. The wood can be used for a large dining table, smaller occasional tables, or any table in between the two extremes.
Whether the idea is to create floating shelves, which are very big in the interior design world, or to have custom book cases or display cases made with the wood, the end result will be the same. The home will have something unique to be used in a practical way while also being very aesthetically pleasing. The craftsmanship can be simple when using exotic wood slabs, allowing the wood to really speak for itself.
If there is school work or business done from the home, then a good desk made from foreign wood is a great way to make a statement of strength and success. The design can be simple, much like a table, or very ornate depending on the stature of the business, the kind of work that needs to be done, and the existing style of the room. Even if the wood is different from what is used elsewhere in the room, it will create a good contrast and a pop of culture and beauty.
One of the biggest trends happening in the interior design world is mismatching chairs. A large dining table can be surrounded by up to 8 chairs, none of which totally match. Multiple lounging chairs can be placed in a room without having to correlate with each other. This creates a great opportunity to have some chairs made from exotic wood. They can be placed anywhere in the home to create a conversation piece and will work well with the current design trends.
