These are a natural tongue oil finish. The wood itself is quite weathered from years of use as plank platforms within Pennsylvania mushroom farms. They showed up at the site looking like this (attached image) and the contractor - Alfred Moore - and his team used a lot of care and craftsmanship to make the planks look so rich on the wall.

The wood paneling on the walls gives the room a warm, earthy impression.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Miniature. Bigger isn't always better. The small nature of this freestanding fireplace complements this room very well, especially with the overextended flue. This size tends to work best when you don't need to heat the entire room.Tip: Just because it's freestanding doesn't mean you can't have built-in seating. Search for a fireplace that has a bench for those chilly nights.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Updated Woodstoves Keep Home Fires Burning
AestheticsThis stove with an integral bench, designed by Antonio Citterio and manufactured by the Danish company Rais, is a focal point for the entire room. It’s but one of many outstanding design options available today, ones that challenge traditional notions of what a woodstove must look like. I particularly like this stove as a freestanding object in the center of this space. It effectively subdivides a relatively large volume while offering even heat to the entire footprint. Obviously, in a home with children, this wouldn’t be an ideal configuration, but here it’s integrated with the architecture in a thoughtful way.

We closely collaborated with the manufacturer (Kalwall) and contractor (Alfred Mohr) about the fabrication and integration of the translucent panels. They give a beautiful diffuse light to the space. They are highly insulating and have one operable panel to facilitate natural ventilation in this non-air-conditioned home.

It's worth pointing out that passive daylighting is a means toward passive cooling (considering the light entering is not too direct, so it doesn't lead to heat gain). Every light turned off during the day cuts down on the cooling that would have been required to offset its heat.
