Trends: tree trunks

Tree trunks and logs have been put to good use to create interesting rustic home accessories and occasional furniture.  I was browsing around Brick Lane and noticed a stack of tree trunks used for display purposes at Traffic People.  When I got home I took a look online to research what’s available to buy and noticed that French Connection had a wonderful wood selection which I thought I’d share with you.  It might give you some inspiration for making some tree trunk pieces yourself.

Next time you have any trees chopped down in your back yard why not ask the tree surgeon if you can keep some pieces so you can use them around the home as a side table, a candle stand or if you’re really handy you could make a lamp.  If you’re not going to make any of these items yourself then you could just buy them from French Connection – like the Wooden Cube Side Table £95-110, Tree Trunk Side Table £125, Candle Log £17-19 and Whitewash Mango Table Lamp £70.  You can buy all of these products from French Connection.
