Design with Nature

I have been so inspired by nature in my latest designs.
I found a fallen tree trunk on a recent hike. It was the perfect width to make chargers for my indoor or outdoor dining table.
I took the stump to a local wood worker to have him cut the stump to 1" thick pieces and 15" circles. It was beautiful! The look was so natural but elegant at the same time. I mixed the rest of the table setting with a vase full of twigs and flower petals. That night at my BBQ I received so many compliments on my new chargers. Everyone thought I had purchased them from a high end retail shop.
Nature is full of beautiful surprises.
