Modern Revival

No matter how hard an architect or designer may try to achieve a timeless structure or visual, there’s almost always a component or two that will link that project back to the particular time in which it was built. Whether it’s the pitch of a roof, the shape of a window, or the specific building materials used in construction, common attributes and applications are embedded or ingrained in an architectural timeline. Through Bentley’s Modern Revival Collection, we explore the trend cycle of wood grains and stain colors that were prominent in three different architectural periods. By identifying oak as a constant throughout the many Revivalist periods, walnut as a staple in Mid-Century Modern styling, and Post-Modern blends of non-defined grains such as bamboo and eucalyptus Bentley was able to create a complete offering of classic wood visuals for any modern space.
