Raw style keys

The raw style reconnects with nature through decoration and to do so, it relies on materials in their natural, raw and imperfect state.

Interiors with a raw trend

Raw woods as protagonists

Raw style and wood go hand in hand. Now not just any piece of wood works in this style, these must be natural, raw and unpolished. No varnishes or dyes that hide its imperfections or soften its texture.

Wooden pieces should exude personality and have weight in the decoration of each room. To do this, it is better to go for “less is more”, choosing a single piece of raw wood furniture and in any case a second auxiliary per room that contributes this raw trend.

Raw wood furniture is usually visually heavy and if several pieces are put together in the same space, they could overload the environment. So make sure you choose each piece and place it in a place that allows you to give it importance, where the piece can breathe.

In the dining room choose a table with a natural wood top untreated and black metal legs to give it a modern look. Next, place a shelf on the wall to place some pieces of dishes and other objects that are important to you. In the living room you could opt for a coffee table and in the bedroom for a bench or small table.

Natural materials that complement it

Other natural materials work very well with untreated wood: vegetable fibers such as rattan, wicker, or esparto grass, but also cork, cotton, linen and baked clay. All sustainable materials that contribute to creating a personal and relaxed environment in which craftsmanship has great weight.

And it is not enough for the materials are sustainable, the pieces made with these should also be. Because if we only took care of its aesthetics, we could be talking about a rustic style and this raw trend goes further.

Traditional craft pieces

To reinforce the natural character of the room and provide personality and warmth to it, resort to local crafts andIt's always an excellent decision. Give up industrial parts or give them less prominence and support local workshops that are so difficult to maintain. Bet on pieces of handmade tableware, terracotta vases, embroidered tablecloths...

The plants, don't miss them

Yes, in terms of plants It is preferable to be subtle and delicate. And just as with the choice of colors, in the raw style it is better to avoid stridency and excesses. A plant here, some wild branches there…

Microcement and black metallic details for a modern touch

Hen/Stag continuous microcement surfaces In preferably warm tones as well as black metallic elements work very well in these spaces, taking them towards more modern and contemporary lines. A touch of black here and there brings dynamism to these spaces but be careful! Don't let the key wooden pieces in your design take center stage, choose them discreet: metal furniture legs, a black vase, a frame...

The raw trend tends to be confused with the rustic style, however, they have little or nothing to do with it beyond the use of natural materials such as wood or plant fibers. In this case and for the treatment given to wood, we find more similarities with the Japandi style.
