The Wood Collection from Superfront


I've always been drawn to natural wood in interiors. I love how it injects warmth and develops a beautiful patina over time, and I'd love to one day redo our kitchen with wood elements. Swedish company Superfront who specialise in designing fronts, sides, tops, handles and legs for the IKEA cabinets have just launched The Wood Collection and it's providing some fresh inspiration. 

The collection offers timeless designs in ash wood veneer for the Ikea frames: Metod, Pax and Bestå, and is available in two styles, plain and grooved, and six unique finishes. Ash wood is chosen for its beautiful grain and the different stains are in a UV-resistant lacquer to ensure longevity. One of my favourites is Umber Wood, a dark finish that looks similar to walnut, teak or smoked oak but has its own unique character. I love how this stained ash wood, which is also a sustainable alternative to tropical woods such as wenge and mahogany, pairs perfectly with soft beige textural walls and contrasting stone benchtops.

In contrast, Alabaster Wood has been treated with a touch of white to retain the bright character of the ash wood. Together with other blonde woods such as birch, pine and white pigmented oak, it plays a significant role in the Scandinavian design tradition and looks right at home against a fresh white backdrop with muted accents and textural details.   

Biscotti Wood, demonstrated with bathroom furniture below, can be compared to oak but with a less reddish hue and fewer deviating light streaks. Warm and elegant, this finish is easy to combine with other woods and colours.

The remaining three colours – two different greys and one green shade – come from Superfront's existing colour palette. Warm and muted, I love how they inject a subtle touch of colour.
