Tuesday’s Trends: Burl Wood

Hello Fabulistas! Design always creates wonderful opportunities to celebrate what may be perceived as imperfections. Burl wood, one of my favorite trends right now, does just that. This abnormal growth on a tree results in swirls and patterns that are simply beautiful. Pieces made of burl wood are extra special and add a unique look to any room.

Grounding Swirls

You may think that something so unique would overwhelm other textures. Wrong! Here, this burl wood console brings a number of textures and neutral colors together beautifully. What a well-styled vignette!
