Modern Home Details: Wood Cladding
Wood cladding is a natural, durable and beautiful choice for both interior and exterior applications and, depending on how it is detailed, is a perfect material for modern as well as traditional designs.
Details can make a good design remarkable.
Design is in the Details. Whether it’s a detail to define an edge, a detail to accentuate a corner connection or a detail to emphasize light or shadow, the design of each detail adds another dimension to the architecture. Below we share a few beautiful modern details with wood..hopefully to inspire your next design.
