|Tree stump cocktail table by Century Furniture “Gentleman’s Study” by Jon Jahr & Associates|
The addition of the table in the Gentleman’s Study on the right stuck out like a sore thumb (in a good way, that is) and brought life into an otherwise very staid and serious room. The table on the left is the same exact table - I love how it can almost be mistaken for the real thing – every little crevice, every nook and cranny one might find on the stump of an actual tree. The deep bronze color and the soft patina – amazingly luxurious without being flashy. Just my style…just not in this type of room.

Sun bleached driftwood is always a nice addition to any room, and unlike cast bronze, it lends itself to a more casual and beach like setting. One of the big trends buzzing in the interior market is bringing the outdoors in, and incorporating natural wood and organic wood shapes in different finishes is the perfect way to do so.
As long as one takes into consideration the overall feel of the other items in the room, driftwood can be incorporated into any type of interior, formal or informal, depending on what kind of finish is used. Here are a few of my favorite picks currently on the market.
•1•Kingston driftwood and glass table •2• Golf foil stump table •3• Kazoo dragon tree root and iron sculpture •4• White “driftwood” table lamp •5• Petrified wood on stand •6• Driftwood bowl •7• Luna Milpa coffee table •8• corrugated antique brass tables •9• petrified wood stool •10• Driftwood table lamp
