Saturday is the summer solstice, the official start of summer and the longest day of the year.  Time to bring light and airy wood grains into your design palette.  As spring transitions into the long, hot days of summer, Bergen Ash leads the way!  Bergen is a very natural and elegant Nordic wood grain which when paired with a solid creates harmony and blends rustic design elements with today’s modern aesthetic.

Currently, Bergen Ash is available in our 5 piece product line, The Craftsman Series in the straight shaker style:

It is also available in our 3DL (thermofoil) product line, The Benchmark Collection.  One of the benefits of having this color available in both product lines is our ability to provide not only a multitude of profiles, but also accessory pieces such as crown and base molding, wine racks and valances.

Bergen Ash TFL (melamine) is available from Arauco Prism in their matte Velvet texture.  Velvet is a warm, super-smooth finish which is completely appropriate for this Scandinavian wood grain.  Arauco’s line of melamine include authentic textures, rich solids, trendy neutrals, and brilliant whites.

Bergen also pairs well with Mysterious, Arauco Prism SF247, a modern navy.  Check out our previous post on this versatile neutral: Mid-century Mysterious.
