mini trend: rough wood

WOOD 1

it's monday and time for a new mini trend- one of the wonderful by-products of the trend towards green design has been a resurgence of wood in the market. it came first in the form clean, smooth designs (and veneers of all types) that mimicked the modern look of materials like steel or resin. but as the green movement has become more of a permanent category and less of a trend we've seen the industry open up to include rough, chunky cuts of wood that let the natural beauty of the material shine. whether it's with burl bowls, rough carved wooden vases or reclaimed railroad ties, the design industry seems to be embracing beautiful wooden objects that have been left relatively natural. click here for the full mini trend post and some more ideas to bring the look into your home.

[i'm in meetings until 12:30 today so i'll be back around 2 with the last post of the day: an apartment tour you won't want to miss.]

Well, someone will be happy to find the weed pots I gave to Goodwill after moving. Dang. I had picked them up at yard sales years ago.
