Meeting Demand for Mid-Century With Real Cedar

September 20, 2019 in Wood Products - #distribution

Mid-Century Modern styles—from homes to furniture—have been making a notable comeback in recent years, likely in part due to Americans renewed desire cleaner, less cluttered spaces and a craving for authenticity that only vintage vibes can provide.

Wood is a prominent material for Mid-Century styles, and today’s revival is no different.

“We aren’t surprised Mid-Century designs are making a comeback, since 1950s homes were built with both durability and beauty in mind,” says the Western Red Cedar Lumber Association. “Many designers and architects are opting to restore the original cedar paneling that was a common feature of this particular style.”

Looking for inspiration? Check out these Mid-Century-style homes featuring real cedar paneling:
