Pale, light European wood has been hogging the spotlight, thanks to the popularity of the Scandinavian look for homes.

We present a snapshot of the toasty woodgrain designs available from Lamitak’s catalogue of almost 200 wood-look laminates – you’ll be surprised at how this classic can look so contemporary as well!
