My Favorite Materials



There are certain materials that I really like, including:

  • Wood
  • Metal
  • Leather
  • Glass
  • Stone (including concrete)
  • Natural fabrics (cotton, wool, etc.)

They go really well together, and are typically found in very well-made objects. I hope to build a home using primarily these materials someday. 

(Note: I mentioned this to my wife, and she asked “Well what else is there?” So maybe I should clarify what materials I’m not a big fan of: drywall, plastic, stucco, painted metal, artificial fabrics, etc.)

Am I missing anything? What are your favorite materials?
