We believe home design should be stylish and distinctive.

Not sure what style fits your home best when searching for light wood furniture? Don’t worry; we have got you covered. Check out a few tips below for inspiration when exploring our well-curated line of designs.
Scandi and Beyond
When we think of light wood furniture, our mind immediately leaps to the warm, clean minimalism of Scandi design. With so many light wood styles that showcase the material’s natural texture, muted tone, and often sculptural silhouettes, it is no surprise the two are so closely associated. Just check out how a light wood lounge chair like our Kenneth Leather Chair blends mid-century lines with an ash wood construction and tonal leather cushion to inspire a sleek design with the quintessential Scandi practical appeal. Lately, light wood furniture has also emerged as a versatile option for various styles.
Consider the striking balance light oak furniture, like our Ada Coffee Table, can bring to a collected space when grounded by an earth tone rug and neutral sofa. Or how a light wood accent cabinet like our Ryden Curio Cabinet pairs traditional design notes and an oak veneer with a marble shelf for mixed material refinement. No matter what style your look is rooted in, lighter finishes are a great way to showcase all the knots and grains of solid wood construction while maintaining a careful visual balance.
How to Style Light Wood Furniture by Room
Pale wood pieces can offer a fresh look to every room in your house, and whether styling light wood furniture in the living room or pining after an oak dining set, there are some helpful tips to keep in mind.
Light Wood Furniture in the Living Room
Mixing and matching light wood living room furniture allows you endless ways to accent, contrast, or define your aesthetic. A light wood accent cabinet or light wood sideboard can offer storage appeal plus a bright tone to open up the space. Other light wood living room furniture like coffee tables or benches can come in angular geometric profiles or raw, chunky designs to suit your space. When styling a statement piece, think about how it reflects and elevates the elements around it.
If you are working in a collected space, consider ways the hardware and other mixed materials can tie the piece into your decor. Even if the clean, pared-down style of Scandi design is not your goal, be mindful of not crowding light wood elements with too many accents. A soft knit throw or pillow can complement a light wood lounge chair, but pale finishes generally shine in a well-lit space with pared-down styling.
Light Wood Bedroom Furniture
Light wood bedroom furniture has an established tradition of inspiring airy, calming bedroom looks. With modern light wood bedroom furniture, it is easier than ever to find tailored bliss with muted wood finishes. Our Brooke Collection pairs a light finish with curved lines and cane paneling to offer soft appeal in every detail.
Also, think about how wood can be an accent rather than the rule in a room. For a lighter touch, try pairing this white oak Sun at Six Yucca Stand with a chic planter for an utterly modern bit of greenery to freshen up your bedroom space.
Light Wood Dining Room Furniture
Few materials lend themselves to an heirloom-quality dining set quite like oak. A dining table is a place to gather, and so we often opt for the visual weight of dark finishes for this essential centerpiece. But light finished dining tables can augment a refined or sculptural space with a timeless yet modern feel. Another way to bring this fresh look into your dining area is by styling a light wood sideboard or chairs to offer tonal complement in a light space or a striking accent in a room that contrasts different finishes.
From modern light wood bedroom furniture to rustic whitewashed designs, light color wood furniture offers endless ideas to enhance any aesthetic. Light wood furniture can be mixed and matched to anchor your look with a sense of unity or used as a warm, modern accent that brings your space to life. Light wood finishes let you showcase a style that blends elegant design with an inviting everyday feel.
