There's nothing like sitting at your computer for hours on end, day after day, to make you want to get back to nature. These websites showcase that sentiment by incorporating the most natural of construction elements—wood—into their designs.

Modern, high tech, and industrial may be hot right now, but woodland web designs show that natural instinct will never go away. Woodland web design is for all those techies who'd rather be camping.

Implications - The addition of naturalistic touches makes any product stand out, lending to a sense of realism and rustic charm. Consumers enjoy this reversion back to nature as a relief from the technological advancement of today's world, which can often be confusing and exhausting.
