I think the post on the connect furniture blog (http://blog.connectfurniture.com.au/post/1421068476/which-wood-you-choose) really summed up my feelings about timber, hey I even have timber as the background image on my blog!
"The beauty of timber furniture is always in the eye of the beholder. We are unique individuals and as such different timbers will “speak” to people differently. I watch every week as those frequenting my showroom reach out their hand and run it along the length of the timbers in our showroom tables as if reaching out to nature."
So here's some images where Timber is the key to the room's appeal.
