Celebrities often opt for sleek furniture, metallic accents, and chrome decor in their luxurious homes. Chris Hemsworth, however, has leaned into the 'Organic Modern' trend by enlisting his friend, designer Lee Brennan, to create some one-of-a-kind, handmade pieces comprised of entirely natural materials.
The Thor and Avengers star revealed his home's wooden entryway, dining table, outdoor table, and mirror frame, in contrast to glass sliding doors and lighting fixtures.
Organic modern materials not only give a space a more rustic, natural feel but can actually be a huge boost in selling a property – real estate experts explain.

'The use of raw materials in Chris Hemsworth's house is a testament to the growing demand for natural and sustainable elements in luxury properties,' says The Corcoran Group agent Michael Wiesenfeld.
'This approach not only adds an organic, earthy feel to the home but also sets it apart in the competitive real estate market. Homes that embrace these materials often see an increased sale potential, attracting buyers who seek both luxury and a connection to natural beauty in their living spaces.'
Michael is a Real Estate entrepreneur, investor & developer with a strong expertise in the Miami residential & multi-family market from Coral Gables /Coconut Grove to Key Biscayne, Brickell/Edgewater, Miami Beach & North Miami.
According to Michael, natural finishes are on trend at the moment, from larger staple pieces like tables and chairs to small accessories, such as dishes and cutlery. With high net-worth buyers looking for interesting properties, organic elements add subtle value.
'Chris Hemsworth's choice to incorporate raw materials in his home design, like natural wood and stone, aligns perfectly with current trends in Miami's luxury real estate market,' Michael says.
'These elements offer a blend of authentic charm and modern luxury, enhancing the property's curb appeal. Such design choices not only elevate the aesthetic but also appeal to high-net-worth individuals who value uniqueness and quality in their real estate investments.'
