Tree inspired furniture: 20 stunning designs
With architects and designers everywhere bringing nature and natural elements into the home, it is no wonder that furniture designers are inspired by designing designs that highlight nature, especially trees. These 20 stunning tree inspired designs run from the abstract to the literary and are made from tree wood, metal, embroidery and more.
Benjamin Graindorge’s Fallen Tree is one of the more literal interpretations in which the actual branches seem to grow from the bench, as if the seat were where the log is. The almost transparent Lucite leg, which supports the side of the bench without the twigs, further enhances this visualization.
The connection of the branches with the bench is almost invisible and the use of barked branches that are still attached contributes to the story. source
Branch (Marked) Sofa is the design by Gert Wingardh and Sara Heider. The mixed media interpretation of a tree over the wooden leg support and the embroidered branches make this sofa an eye-catcher from the back.
As sophisticated as the pattern is, the minimalist aesthetic fits perfectly with the Zanat product lines.
The whim of embroidery gives Branch (Marked) Sofa a sense of life.
Living wood panels have such raw appeal, and the adjustable Black Walnut Live Edge shelf by Design Lush is no exception. The contrast between the random lines of the living edge and the straight lines of the glass shelves is simply sublime.
Design Lush also makes shelf with a more abstract tree image like this Oak Juniper Branch Shelf. source
This bookshelf is a really cute way to create a miniature library that extends from floor to ceiling. The trunk has a canopy of shelves that can be filled with all sorts of things, but books, especially in terms of flora and fauna, really make the vignette.
The Archie Picture Frame by Darryl Cox of Fusion Frames NW is as artistic as possible, what I really like about this design is that it also lets you hang a hat or a dog leash or even holiday bobbles from the split Manzanita branch while still the bronze gilded frame was used to show a painting.
Bentley and Brutus may not have the same ability to hang items, but they’re just as pretty, and if I had one, I’d rather show a mirror than a painting inside the frame. source
John Houshmand really knows how to make a big impression with his tree designs. This dramatic dining table consists of a half block of wood, 5 steel columns and a glass top. Not only does this table make a big statement, it’s also pretty big at 516 “Wx64” Dx30 “W.
Michael Thomas, the host of MTH Woodworks, also uses real sections of found trunks in his furniture creations. The furniture is part of their Bloom Collection and begins a forest walk to collect the wood that is used. Part of the wood he finds is filled with white resin to make it unique, no two are the same, side tables.
Sometimes Michael Thomas Host uses the woodcuts as bases that cut through resin plates. See similar and more of his artistic tables.
Nordic House also uses tree trunks in their tree table series with the tree rings in the table top. These designs show standard table legs that are painted white to match the sides of the white-painted tree panels.
Driftwood Branches in Acrylic and Burnt Branches in Acrylic Side Tables by Michael Dawkins are frozen like moments in time, as if the branches are trapped in a river of ice flow. It is almost expected that live animals will move around the branches. source
Victor Klassen designed these amazing doors, do not you just love how the organic window sections are created through the gaps in the branches? source
Some tables have leaves, others like this are leaves and just for wordplay – I mean fun, I’ll leave it at that. source
This kitchen island, which Willi Bruckbauer designed for the Werkhaus, is made from a large, partially natural and partially milled tree trunk. The juxtaposition is a clever way to represent the raw to final shape of the wood. source
With a less literal interpretation of the trees, the dining table Angkor by Oliveir Dolle uses one of his legs as a tree trunk and continues the graphics across the tabletop. Believe it or not, this contemporary artwork was inspired by 12th-century temples at Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
Oliveiri’s Bookshelf Branch skilfully rejuvenates the width of each end branch, just as Mother Nature does. source
The bookshelf tree branch can be adapted to any size with any number of branches or branches.
By the way, we have chosen the best bookshelves – have a look!
Oliveir also designs stock items, limited editions and custom-made items such as this three-tier console table.
Enrico Mangialardo designed the Climber as a three-tier side table with the graphically colored table surfaces as a green canopy. The name Mountaineer refers to climbing vegetation, but I see a tree canopy when I look at it.
While the climbing wooden base has a reference from the middle of the century, the colored part of the glass surfaces from the 60s seems to come from. source
The Grow Up series is based on the concept that wooden structures are logs and each log has a small tree sprouting from its wood to become an additional functional attribute, cool.
A chair that grows like a tree is the design of Kwon Jae Min and part of its Grow Up series. The best thing about this design is that the wardrobe area is not separated from the chair back, but comes from the same wood panel. Just look at how the wood grain continues through both.
Trees are not the only nature objects used as a muse – furniture inspired by both domestic animals and wild animals is also part of our collection, inspired by nature.
