driftwood

We love the natural beauty and texture of driftwood.  Here’s a brief round up of some of our favorite driftwood-themed items and accessories.

Nantucket Driftwood Lamp, $439

The Nantucket Lamp (from Tracery) is a great example of how driftwood can be both rustic and chic at the same time.  Practically speaking though this lamp is cool because the height of the socket/shade is adjustable and the silver-lined putty paper shade casts a really nice indirect light.  Doug has the white version of this lamp (with a different shade) in his living room.

 

 

Kingston Driftwood and Glass Oval Coffee Table, $1298

Like the look of that lamp so much you want to make it a coffee table?  Here you go!  We love the way the glass floats over the sculptural driftwood base of this piece.  There’s a similar version (which is whitewashed) that we used at Silverock Cove last year (as seen on our website and in Birmingham Home & Garden).  The table pictured above, is also available from Tracery and comes in a side table too.

 

Driftwood Mirror, Crate and Barrel, $199

 

Isn’t this a cool take on a sunburst mirror?  And a great price.

 

 

Kazu Sculpture, $597

 

The real beauty of driftwood is its sculptural quality.  This piece captures that essence perfect…the wood floats above an iron base supported by steel pins.

  1. I love that mirror and what a great price. Driftwood and washglass (seaglass) is hard to find here in LA. I got a long string of driftwood from a guy on Venice Beach and hang it near my door at the beach. Makes me happy whenever I look at.

  2. I’ve decorated with driftwood/forest wood for years! I love the individual pieces and the color in general. In fact, right now I am trying to find a driftwood stain/wash for the ceiling boards (v-match, rough cut, fir) for the barn room. If you have any fave stains I would dearly love to hear!!

    best,

  3. There is a mixture that comes in a bag, it makes a gallon and when painted on natural wood, it turns it gray as though it has been sitting in the sun for years.

    I am not sure of its name, but it is fairly well known in Canada.

  4. I have loved making mirrors, lamps, tables, candle holders, benches and napkins rings out of driftwood for years. My facebook.com/azcanuck has many pictures of what I have done. Please feel free to visit, comment and share.
