“Lighten Up”- For this Furniture Trend

Did you know that the trend towards using lighter colored wood finishes is transitioning more over to commercial and hospitality furnishings?

This look has been greatly influenced by the popularity of “Scandinavian Modern” looks marketed by Ikea and other companies that have tapped into simplicity, minimalism, and functionality.

Lighter wood finishes not only provide a neutral look, they allow for the natural grain of the wood to be emphasized, and  ultimately they show less scratching and wear over time.

Here are 2 CCB projects that are examples of “Lightening It Up”  with stain finishes.

CCB Community Tables produced for The Lake Club in Youngstown, OH.

CCB “Greensboro” Series seating produced for Genji Go Restaurant in Gahanna, OH.

Thank you to Hannah Vernal Designs (The Lake Club),  Chute Gerdeman and Prestige Properties (Genji Go), and our CCB Sales Representatives, Jay Dickinson & Warren Dorn for the opportunity to be a part of these 2 projects. 

Let us know how we can provide product for your next project.
