Dark wood is making a comeback in 2024. A firm favourite of many interior designers, the sheer elegance of dark wood has taken a backseat to mainstream interior design trends for the last few years as the light and minimalist Scandi style took centre stage. Now, it’s back and better than ever as the design landscape is embracing quiet luxury once again.

At Taskers, we know a thing or two about luxury. In fact, it’s what we do best. We supply hundreds of expertly crafted furnishings from some of the most highly sought-after luxury brands in the world, like TetradCalligarisHarrison Spinks Beds and Cattelan Italia – just to name a few. With well over a century of history to our name, we’ve been around long enough to see a variety trends come and go, and we know that wood furniture will never go out of style. So, if you’re looking to switch up your interior decor with the 2024 interior forecast, here’s why this year is all about dark wood.

Dark wood is a pillar of quiet luxury

To put it simply, quiet luxury is understated elegance, and it’s been a rising star since late 2023. This interior design style is relatively new to the game but plays on themes of sophistication, timeless appeal and high-quality pieces. Celebrating fine materials, excellent craftsmanship and all things classic, it pairs exceptionally well with vintage lighting and furniture pieces of a similar style (whether authentic vintage or made in the style of). And that’s where dark wood comes in. It goes hand in hand with the interior styles that embody this philosophy, like Timeless, Victorian and Farmhouse styles.

Timeless taste

Dark woods like teak, walnut, and mahogany are synonyms with timeless interior decor styles, and with a love for vintage style on the rise, it only makes sense that furniture would follow suit. It also ties in nicely with the swapping of lighter colours for darker statement colours. Some of our beautiful pieces we’d say fit the quiet luxury look include the Nantes Double Pedestal Extending Table, Alexander & James Hudson Wing Chair and Wooden Column Floor Lamp with Black Shade. It’s all about keeping things, simple and opulent, with just a touch of dramatic flair for good measure.

Natural beauty

All wooden furniture includes a charming natural beauty, which is derived from the unique swirls and textures of the tree it was crafted from. However, the richness of dark wood is especially beautiful. Dark wood subtly showcases intricate patterns of swirls and knots, as well as variations in colour, creating a visually stunning aesthetic that's one of a kind. The grain and patterns visible on the wood's surface add dimension to each piece, giving it a sense of character. What's more, wood furniture only gets more stunning with age; they're timeless pieces you can rely on to last years and still look just as beautiful as the day you bought them.
