I used to not like wood at all, as I tended to favor metals, shiny enamel, and lacquered surfaces. I’ve grown up since then.
We’ve all seen the Hudson dining table, made from wonderfully imperfect richly colored wood on an unexpected base (plexi-glass! polished chrome!). If you’re human you probably love it. This piece was one that sparked my interest in wood, and for that I’m grateful.
If you’re into the innovative use of reclaimed tree parts, then take a look at these pieces. They’re all equally gorgeous, friendly to the environment, and detrimental to your wallet, I’m sure.
