Since we first started foraging trees downed from Sandy for various home design applications, we’ve been seeing salvaged tree furniture everywhere. We have trees in our heads!
We love the cubist desk, above made from massive hunks or redwood and eucalyptus. (If we had a crane to haul that 3-foot in diameter oak in the park home + a chain saw to cut it, we’d make one). But we’ll file the elegant idea in our minds for some future use.
…Then we came across these painted logs (if they’re even real), about which we have mixed feelings. It could be cool to paint our downed-by-Sanndy oak tree trunk stool a color, but we can’t bear to yet: we’re so enjoying its pure surprising treeness.
…then, of course, there are the thinner trees and branches that we’ve had our eye on.
…So many possibilities…
