Use wood for a homely feel at work

8th_recep2At times, I face resistance from clients to the use of wood, especially while designing offices. Given the global exposure that people have today, somehow wood is seen as ‘old 6th floorworld’ by a section of people and a steel-n-glass look is often seen as contemporary. I don’t believe so, though! Of course, solid wood is not really an economical option as well.

However, I often end up recommending the use of wood at least as an ‘accent’. It not only highlights spaces, but also brings in a more ‘homely’ feel to spaces.1Ground21
