The notion of using wood for walls is nothing new – it may well date back to the first modest homes or huts ever built by humans. A simple twist of the branch, however, and a lesser-seen face of these similarly-sized sticks is revealed.
Bleu Nature has something of a knack for finding a balance between the rustic, made-by-hand associations we have with wood and the more abstract and contemporary forms normally found in modern houses. This wood wall tile in particular stands (literally) as a fascinating way to reuse a classic natural material.
Their other wooden wall decor – from clocks to mirrors – seems a little tame and conventional by comparison. The company also works with stones as well as more abstractly-shaped branches as in the funky wall-attached lighting fixture shown above.
