I have had a few comments with regards to the image of the paneled wall I posted in my Decorex blog post so I thought I would gather some wood paneling images for you.
I love using wood paneling in my projects it adds warmth and depth to a space and looks great aesthetically whether it be a whole paneled room or a feature wall. Wood paneling is not a new surface finish, it is evident in modernist architects work such as Mies Van Der Rohes Farnsworth house shown below. In the 1960’s there was some fantastic modern structures clad in vertical wood slats. Things degenerated by the 70’s with dark faux wood paneling in family living rooms were the height of cool. However wood paneling is enjoying a renaissance in a contemporary manner. Anything from a refined rich mahogany panels could be used to a striped pine for a rustic feel or if it an industrial look you are looking for, ash faced plywood could be utilised. Fireplaces, televisions and shelving can be incorporated into the paneling and I still like to add artwork on the face of paneled walls similar to what can be seen in The Edition Hotel London image below.

This fully lined macassar ebony paneled room provide a more refined look in this apartment.
The brick ceiling and cast-iron columns are restored nods to the industrial past of the building, whilst the dark timber wall paneling, along with the light oak floors and soft hues of fabrics and furnishings add a comfortable feel to these offices located in Kortrijk, Belgium designed by Vincent Van Duysen.

Architects Friis Moltke and Wienberg Architects took wood paneling to the limit, by covering both walls and ceiling and in some locations even matching the floor to its neighboring wood planes. Photos courtesy of Friis Moltke via D Pages

Sheets of richly grained wood in different sizes make for a fireplace feature wall that almost rivals the view out the floor to ceiling glass windows. The earthly material also provides a contrast against the stone surround and polished concrete floor.
