The timeless beauty of natural wood is marching into the future in an exciting new guise! As with so much else in the 21st century, technology is having a huge impact on interior design. While in the past you often had to choose between expensive raw materials, or keep to a strict budget with linoleum, the latest high definition digital printing techniques now make it possible for desirable natural substances to be imitated, in an affordable and sustainable manner.
One of the latest of these is wood, which is making a huge splash in the world of decorating, as modern technology opens up a whole new vista of opportunities. By replicating unique surface features such as grain or knots and printing them onto sustainable ceramic or porcelain, it is possible to produce the authentic effect of real wood at a fraction of its price, and without depleting the planet’s valuable natural resources.
