Wooden Designs You’ll Love

We are all familiar with hand crafted wooden side tables and the perfect mahogany chair. However, the world of carpentry shows no boundaries, and there are all sorts of others things out there made of our favorite natural material. I’m picking a few home and fashion designs I know you’re going to love…

Art Couture Collectives Bath Tub

If you have a spare $36,000 to spend on a bath tub… check out this beauty from Art Couture Collectives. I have no idea how you care or clean such a beast, but it’s definitely going to give your bathroom the wow factor.

Ryosuke Fukusada Light Bulb

These wooded light bulbs by artist Ryosuke Fukusada are a labor of love. The bulbs are carefully hand turned to a thickness of 2-3mm, allowing light to pass through for a warm glow. Unfortunately this was a limited edition project, so you may have trouble getting your hands on one!

Wooden Sake Pourer

I appreciate compared to a wooden like bulb, a jug might not be quite so groundbreaking, but I had to feature these sake pourers from artist Kota Fukunaga, purely because I love them! Hand turned in Birch, the exposed bark base give these pourers a fabulous natural finish that reminds me of a Japanese landscape painting. If you need a set in your life, they are available at Mjolk.

Jord Watches

Jord don’t just make one cool watch from wood… all their watches are made of wood! It’s their thang… so when I was offered a chance to review one in the flesh, I was pretty excited. My husband is pleased with himself too, because we’re test running a men’s watch. Our particular model is made of Koa, a Hawaiian tree species, warm in color and sustainably sourced. Husband / Twin-Pickle-Hand-Model for the day, made these complimentary points about the ‘Frankie’:

  • We live in Arizona, and it’s HOT. He finds a metal link strap gets sweaty and… yep, smelly. It’s pretty gross, but it’s true. Wood on the other hand, being a natural material, will breathe and be more comfortable in the summer heat.
  • We were both impressed that despite the sensible price tag, the Jord watch face is finished with Sapphire Crystal, and the overall build and quality is great.
  • We love the packaging, and it’s not just for show. Jord watches are built to last, and come in a case made of… wood obviously. More than that, the case includes a humidity draw to keep the wood in the perfect conditions. It reminds me of some kind of mini cedar closet for your watch.

The Jord website is lovely to browse, and they’ll adjust to your measurements for a small fee. The watch we have been testing out is called Frankie, finished in Koa and Ash, I’m hoping you like it as much as we do! And don’t worry ladies… if you’re in the market for a cool watch for yourself, they’ve got you covered too.
