The wall of random planks of reclaimed timber makes a unique, eco-chic focal point for this workspace and dining area. You can re-create this look by scouring your home, friends' homes, demolition sites, and architectural salvage shops for used wooden planks and nailing them in a random fashion to one wall.
Furniture: Combine a simple white Parsons-style table, like the Poliform Trevi Table (inquire for price) shown here, and an assortment of different styles of chairs, like an oak Hans Wegner Wishbone Chair ($835) and modern white plastic dining chairs, like the Habitat Zucco Chair ($193) shown here.
Accents: For lighting, get yourself a table lamp with a traditional base shape in glass or ceramic with a glossy finish, in a fun but not overwhelming color, like hunter green. Or, paint a table lamp you already own with high-gloss paint. Pick up some of the tones in your timber wall with red project storage boxes and a Pantone coffee mug to coordinate perfectly. Keep a basket or box with a graphic cut-out pattern nearby to get finished and future projects out of the way, and toss a soft, gray, cabled throw on the back of your Wishbone chair to shield you from the occasional Summer breeze.
