The benefits of choosing natural materials in the home


Nature and interior design go hand in hand. As humans, we crave a connection to nature. Whether it’s in the quiet of the bush or the calming wash of the waves on the beach. 

Natural materials invite that connection to nature into our homes. The warmth of timber. Or the softness of wool. Or the cool touch of stone. These elements all make a space feel cosy and inviting.  

With so much to offer, we explore the benefits of natural materials in home decor.

The comfort of nature


The modern trend towards indoor-outdoor living blurs the boundaries between indoors and out. The outdoor area is an extension of the home with a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. Natural materials tend to have a neutral colour palette that plays into the colours of nature, helping to enhance this flow and connection to the outdoors. 

The tactility and aesthetic warmth of natural home decor adds to the appeal, invoking the senses. Like the feeling of running your hands over a leather sofa. Or the way the sun brings out the grain of natural timber furniture. Or the feeling under feet of walking over a soft, wool rug.



Featuring the Serenade Storage Bed in Bowen Natural White.


Beyond aesthetics, many natural materials, such as wool, offer functional benefits that can enhance comfort through temperature regulation. Bowen bouclé, from the King Living fabric collection, is made from renewable and biodegradable Australian wool with a light blend of cotton and acrylic for durability. As a primarily natural material, the fabric is highly breathable, offering the same level of comfort all year round.

Nature’s unique beauty


With their own texture, colour variations and imperfections, natural materials add character and a timeless, one-of-a-kind quality to your home decor. A wooden sideboard like may have different knots in the grain pattern. Or a woollen rug may have subtle variations in the colour or weave. 

It’s this timelessness that means natural materials are highly versatile, able to evolve with your home. Whether your style is natural earthy interior design or a curated maximalism, furniture made from natural materials will always look at home. They’re the building blocks you can use to incorporate other pieces that align with your colour or trend preferences.

Next level durability  


Natural materials are incredibly strong and durable. With proper care and maintenance, they’re able to withstand the rigours of everyday life. The benefit of natural furniture is that it’s typically easier to maintain than many synthetic materials. 

The origins of King Living stem back to a desire to create durable furniture that would last for generations. For five decades, we’ve consistently turned to natural materials for our collections, knowing they have the durability to stand the test of time.

The Plateau Outdoor Collection is crafted from natural teak, a sustainable choice that offers a natural resistance to the elements. The timber has a contemporary aesthetic that beautifully reflects the outdoor environment.
