Forget Mike, Carol, Greg, Marcia, and the rest of the Brady Bunch: these wood wall panels have left the 1970s in the dust.

Usually associated with cheap motels, wood paneling has finally come of age.

For one, today's wood panels are real wood--ebony, teak, macassar, rosewood, oak, or other exotics--not plastic film atop particle board.

For another, they are sized smaller and current fashion is to mount them grain-horizontal.

Resources

Quality wood paneling is still difficult to find at brick and mortar stores; it won't be at your local Home Depot or Lowe's. Online retailer 27estore (link below) has a wide selection of real wood panels.

Be prepared for staggering costs for wood paneling from any online company. For example, a 3ft x 6ft horizontal-grain rosewood panel will cost you around $400-$500.
