Introducing natural woods can make white rooms more welcoming. Wood exudes warmth, thawing the chill from a snowy space while adding texture, contrast, and shine.

Airy white figurative artworks can provide a peaceful focal point, especially when combined with naturally appealing wooden walls, cabinetry, or rustic floors.

Try modern wooden sculpture to grace a Mid-Century space with eye-catching shape and form. Use a colorful contemporary wooden wall sculpture to anchor a gallery wall while adding more dimension, or layer in small sculpture to upgrade a mixed tabletop vignette. Display wooden sculpture surrounded by lush greenery to add texture and even more organic appeal.

For a lasting way to instill your white and wood modern living space or office with a sense of zen, feature an oversized minimal abstract painting to make a quiet but undeniable statement.
