In the Raw

Today we're rounding up our favorite projects using pieces from AVE Raw, our collection of unfinished furniture that can be custom finished to work in any space. While these classic designs look beautiful painted or stained, lately we've noticed designers opting to keep the pieces in their raw form, and we're loving the results. The unfinished wood is a great way to add warmth to a space while also making a statement. Keep reading below for some design inspiration.

Amy Stone partnered with The Studio at One Kings Lane to redesign the living room in her Manhattan apartment and selected our Camille Demilune for her entryway.

The neoclassical style piece features hand carved details and delicate, tapered legs. At only 14 inches deep, the demilune is perfect for areas where space is limited. Pair it with a colorful painting to complete the look.


Jacquelyn Clark of Lark & Linen recently completed her home office renovation, where she chose to use our Colette Desk

"The raw wood adds a ton of warmth to an otherwise crisp and cool palette," said Jacquelyn, "And the carved details and turned legs add the most glorious details." The simple, classic piece also offers plenty of storage and a ton of surface space, making it the perfect place to settle in and get some work done.



We were blown away when Mollie Openshaw of Design Loves Detail revealed her #OneRoomChallenge office makeover. Our Louie Dresser works perfectly in the bright, cozy space. 

Mollie says she loved the look of the natural wood, so she chose to keep the dresser in it's raw form, applying only a light coat of wax. This is a great way to protect the piece, while maintaining the raw wood look.

We love the way our Philippe Mirror complements the warm, earthy tones of the fabric on the walls and the other natural accents.
