Reader poll: To ply, or not to ply?

More and more in design magazines I’ve been seeing designs that incorporate the look of unpainted plywood.  I think this started mostly as a low-budget wall covering, but now it’s become a trend.  I’ve seen it in kitchens, like these:

plywood-backsplash

Scandinavian cottage like kitchen with plywood

Like how this one makes it look more upscale with the metal strips between the planks.

Have also seen it in living areas:

plywood-wall

plywood-wall

And in an office or home office setting….

plywood-office

plywood-office

And of course there are some great-looking plywood shelves:

So…. what do you think?  Do you like this look?  Vote now!
