Wood Tables Warm Up a Space

A home tour that ran a few weeks ago in DesignSponge really caught my eye. It featured the home of designer Michael Freimuth, who has a cool rustic-meets-vintage-modern space in Brooklyn. In particular, I loved the way he used a real tree stump as a side table.

In the sneak peek, Michael said, "I’ve been hauling this tree stump with me for the last decade; it’s the best part of moving. It probably weighs close to 100 lbs and enjoys rolling down streets, stairs and traveling cross-country (it’s originally from a park in my hometown of Chicago)."

Since we're not lucky enough to have found our own beloved stump, I started looking for alternatives -- and there are quite a few good ones out there.
These Teak Trunks from VivaTerra are beautiful -- and on sale for $319 for the set.
VivaTerra also offers the favorite Twisty Stool -- also on sale now if you buy a set of two.
West Elm offers this appropriately-titled Natural Tree Stump Side table, for $199.

And for a slightly different twist on the cut wood theme, try the Timber Side Tables from CB2 -- $169 for a set of three. 
Whatever your decor style, a touch of raw wood will add warmth and ground your space.
