Bring Nature Indoors with Eco-Friendly Decor

Entwined Root BookcaseWe’ve talked about VivaTerra‘s Root of the Earth Bowls. They are beautiful and make a great gift idea, but it’s time to feature some larger items that can really help surround you with nature in the comfort of your own home.

Set the stage for your magical getaways (a.k.a. books) with this whimsical book shelf that utilizes dense elm wood as well as Indian root and trunk materials for outer decoration. Finally something to hold all your Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and other nerdy fantastical escapes!
There is also a matching Root Wine Rack for those who like to live dangerously and drink while reading.

Now where will you set your book down while you get up to get your wine from the favorite reading spot? On this
Branch & Glass Side Table
of course! Yep, with branches working together to support the snazzy glass top it looks like nature is here to serve you. A matching Branch & Glass “Console” Table (whatever that means) is also available.

Reclaimed Teak StoolLast but not least on today’s list is … say it with me kids … a STOOL! Yay for stools! (pun intended).
These reclaimed wood stools are made of beautiful Japanese teak wood, and they are great for an impromptu sit down, end table, or they can even be magical chairs out in your secret garden.

Where will you put your eco-friendly furniture?

    excellent idea! I was wondering however if this truly is eco-friendly because we do end up cutting more trees if we start using them as furniture! not sure what ‘reclaimed’ wood is though.

    Reclaimed wood is wood that was used for a building and the building was taken down… or similar. Basically recycled wood. :p

    Hi Sean, thanks for this lovely post. Yes, it good to bring nature indoors. We need to constantly be in touch with nature even when we are confined to our artificially created spaces. Bringing in plants or other items made of wood that would keep us in touch with nature is a wonderful idea. It is soothing to the eyes as well as to the soul.

    Thanks for the wonderful post!
