When it comes to plywood homewares for 2017, think pegboards, hooks, handles, shelving, garlands, bowls and vessels, just to name a few! Plywood homewares add soft warmth and texture to a space, and work well with many of the material trends coming through this year, such as concrete, metallics, greenery and artisan goods.
Pegboard shelves or pegboard walls are becoming quite popular in kitchens and children’s bedrooms, providing easily accessible shelving and storage for pots, bowls, pans and cookbooks, or toys, books and knick-knacks.
Plywood display shelves add a funky element by introducing playful shapes and colour combinations. Geometric and circular shapes dominate this trend, with many retaining the raw look and feel of the timber, and others adding pops of colours with dip-dye or paint.
Plywood hooks and handles are a feature as well as a practical addition to any wall or door. Once again, leaving the ply in its raw state highlights the natural beauty and grain of the material, with colour introduced on the face surfaces or edges of the hooks or handles to create contrast.
As you can see, there are many great ways to incorporate plywood into your existing interior scheme. Be creative, have fun and introduce the natural unadorned beauty of this construction material into your home.
