Inspirational Woodworking


benjamin graigorge_fallen tree

Created by designer Benjamin Graindorge, Fallen Tree is a striking piece of furniture that's half tree, half bench. Made of oak and glass perfectly combined to create this remarkable piece of furniture with practical function and conspicuous design. Graindorge chose to leave the original branches from the tree intact as supporting legs at one end of the bench and as a reminder of the wood’s living origins. The main intention of the designer is to expose and bring wood to life and reveal its primal identity.
