These days it is all about bringing the outdoors inside and one of the ways designers do this is by layering in a look of weathered wood. As seen here in the Materia Mulitcolor bathroom vanities collection by Bianchini & Capponi the weathered wood look doesn’t have to portray a clear finish but can be soft, colored stains in any shade of the rainbow as though it was painted long ago.
The stains used in this vanity collection enhance the look of recycled wood that has through time received a tactile and sculptural surface.
The vanities, mirrors and cabinet units create a stunning impact that is just as at home in a rustic, modern, contemporary or industrial bathroom.
The structural white carcasses frame the stained fir as though framing a piece of art.
Using push/pull hardware on the door and drawer fronts, the modernized look of the weathered fir boards is not interrupted.
Adding in a glass shelf on the vertical wall cabinet showcases the contrast between the horizontal timbers used on the doors and drawers verses the vertical cladding on the back on the shelving unit.
For a little bit of sparkle, the legs on the cabinetry feature stainless steel socks.
If you prefer mill-work without legs, there is a floating version.
I love the play on boxes on this combination of floating cabinet, vanity counter, mini shelf and mirror.
Always a fan of asymmetry, the different faces to each drawer and each mirror keeps this arrangement from being static.
The white floating shelves mimic the open shelving of the vanity below while the colored mirror repeats the look of the two drawers. This is a great combo of smooth and rough, cool and warm, light and dark etc.
The stains enhance the irregularities within the fir boards, adding to the reclaimed wood aesthetic.
The mixed color compositions really make this series of bathroom furniture an artsy addition to any modern space.
Then there are single color versions, of course …
