Branch out and bring the woods into your home! We’re thinking small scale. A few beautiful stumps and logs will do. We’ve been been fascinated with tree stumps since as wee ones we learned to count their circles to determine a tree’s age. You don’t have to be a tree hugger to appreciate these beautiful blocks as accent tables, side tables and more. Wood is warm and versatile and adds organic texture to your living space. Check out these little beauties and how to style them, from minimalist to classically chic.

Dot& Bo also celebrates the art of the trunk with a minimalist Stumped Stool. We love how it’s styled here with a single, pretty succulent, to stay true to the nature motif.
