Furniture Carved By Nature

The organic movement is developing some very deep roots, some of which are being polished up, and turned into furniture!!

In other cases, fallen branches, barely modified are being bundled together and turned into tables.  Pieces of driftwood are being put to practical use, for the first time in their long…drifting… existence.

Tree trunks are sliced, legs added and used as is, with all of the natural ridges and bumps left just as they were when the tree stood in the forest.

I think these tables by Chista are wonderful sculptural works; The brilliance of Nature joined with human ingenuity combined to create something completely new and beautiful.

At the heart of this movement is the understanding that Nature is an artist…and you don’t mess with Mother Nature!! You just polish her up, step back, and marvel at her magnificence!

  4. Wow, these log furniture pieces are really beautiful! I have never seen such creative uses of wood that make the irregular patterns and curves the highlight of the piece before.
