Architects love this design trend which makes rooms lighter


Once you start noticing wood slats in modern interiors, you’re bound to see them everywhere. The narrow wooden planks (also referred to as wood lath) are so versatile, and so prone to DIY projects, you’ll spot them inside and outside the home, across ceilings, walls, decor and furniture.

Used for centuries as a structural material (think roof construction, and even sliding screens found in traditional Japanese architecture), they are now often an aesthetic – albeit functional – choice for modern and minimal interiors (think accent walls, or George Nelson’s iconic mid century Platform Bench). An interior design trend that has been around forever.
