THE WAL LCOVERING WOOD C LADDING

The new way to add warmth to a room? Real tim­ber scales, as seen at Mex­ico City restau­rant Canalla Bistro

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Contents -

We’ve been in­spired to add tex­ture to our walls. Laid out in an overlapping for­ma­tion that re­sem­bles scales, this wood wall cladding at Canalla Bistro in Mex­ico City shows just how chic and cosy tim­ber can be. Cre­ated by Barcelona de­sign out­fit Francesc Rifé Stu­dio and made from a mix­ture of Span­ish and Mex­i­can tim­bers, the pan­elling is in­tended to link the restau­rant’s new South Amer­i­can lo­ca­tion and its sis­ter venue in Va­len­cia, Spain. The ef­fect pro­vides al­most all the dec­o­ra­tion the space needs and is com­ple­mented by honey-coloured wood fur­ni­ture and dark brick-tiled floors, giv­ing the in­te­rior of this eatery a con­tem­po­rary yet warm and wel­com­ing feel.

Want to steal the look? Turn to Dutch brand Won­der­wall Stu­dios (won­der­wall­stu­dios.com), which uses sal­vaged wood to cre­ate wall­cov­er­ings in a wide range of pat­terns and tex­tures, or Bel­gian com­pany Teak Your Wall (teaky­our­wall.com), which cre­ates in­stal­la­tions from re­cy­cled In­done­sian teak.
