Rustic Modern

Maybe it’s because autumn is taking the leaves from our trees, or maybe it’s the sadness of seeing so many trees in our area cut down because they have died in this drought, but today I’m thinking of reclaimed wood used in unusual, functional ways.

I really like that the light fixture above could be totally at home in a country house or in a more modern one, for stark contrast.  The same goes for the painted log tables below…something about the white paint makes the otherwise rustic log look modern, but any color would look interesting (bonus: I have the perfect log for this project that we’ve been drying for years!).
