In recent years, the trend of furnishing the home using natural materials has returned.
But leaving aside the trend for a moment, have you ever wondered why it is preferable to choose natural materials for furnishing your home?
You just have to continue reading to find out.
Choosing natural materials means focusing on a healthier and at the same time lasting option: natural materials are in fact healthier because they do not contain any added chemical components.
A natural material is in fact a product existing in nature or in any case consisting of a set of existing materials assembled without the use of pollutants.
The choice of materials is often treated superficially although it is the most important aspect to consider for the correct implementation of a furniture project.
Often, highly processed and cheaper materials are preferred rather than natural ones with a counterproductive effect over time.
Orienting yourself on an eco-sustainable choice has multiple advantages.
Although initially the costs associated with an eco-friendly construction may seem above average, you must consider that in the long term they will be largely amortized by the resulting benefits: since natural materials are more durable, they do not need to be replaced in a short time (such as happens for artificial materials).
But what are the most used natural materials?
Marble undoubtedly plays a primary role not only for its elegance but also for its versatility.
This material boasts different nuances both as regards the background and the veins, so it is able to adapt perfectly to any chosen living style.
Marble also boasts a remarkable luminosity: it captures and reflects light, enriching itself with a unique shine capable of embellishing any environment.

Then we have wood, a non-toxic, resistant and durable element.
There are numerous types of wood: from solid wood to pine, from larch to oak, from spruce to white.
Among its peculiarities we have the ability of thermal and acoustic insulation and the ability to regulate humidity and shield from electromagnetic radiation.
A lively and flexible material that can be subjected to multiple processes, adapting to any style.
When it comes to wood in furniture, the first thing you think about is parquet, one of the most popular floors thanks to its timeless charm.
The parquet, in addition to being completely natural, is able to adapt to any style and make any environment welcoming and elegant
Bamboo is an alternative to wood which is becoming more and more popular: extremely resistant, flexible, ductile and cheaper than wood due to its availability (bamboo plants have a shorter life cycle than traditional trees).
Then we have terracotta, a material that not only respects the environment but offers excellent thermal insulation.
In addition to giving a style of yesteryear, terracotta floors are resistant and durable over time: perfect for outdoor furniture as they resist thermal shocks well.
In particular, terracotta is a 100% natural material and, unlike ceramic, it can also be recycled or disposed of.
Not to be overlooked is granite, a type of stone that ages better than marble, since it does not lose its luster over time.
Granite can adapt to a very classic environment as well as to a more contemporary decor.
This stone made up of irregular veins and patterns (available in both glossy and matte finishes) creates dynamism on any flat surface.
