Want to impress your loved ones with something unique this holiday season? One of a kind natural art, made entirely from Ontario recycled wood, will bring a bit of nature into your home. An eye-catching piece of art will make a feature and a great talking point.
Finding the right gift for someone is hard. Sometimes it’s not just about knowing what they want or what they like, but about knowing what kind of person they are, then trying to find something unexpected for them. Something they never see before. Something completely unique.
For many of us, nature is an endless source of rejuvenation. A place of peace we can escape to when the reality of the modern world get to be too overwhelming. A place that recharges us, alights our senses, ignites our imagination and gives us the energy to dive back in. Why wouldn’t you try and emulate some of that majesty and wonder in your own home? In the latest projects I tried to bring some of the power and beauty of nature into the house:
The ability to bring nature into your home has been an ambition that humans have strived for over the centuries. We love the natural and organic appeal of elements that makes us feel calm, at peace and above all welcomed into a space.
From the bark of a tree to the soft feel of grass underfoot to the sturdiness of a rock wall, nature is full of textures, and those textures can be explored in your home. Give your senses something to grab a hold to so you can revisit nature’s textures in your home anytime you’d like.
The more we get involved with technology, the more people want to surround themselves with the textures, colors, and patterns of nature.
Wood wall art will help you feel closer to nature and add an organic touch. Admit it, exotic things excite and attract us!
“Artemano, a decade-old Quebec company that sells ethically- and sustainably-sourced furnishings. Owners Shimon Finkelstein and Eyal Shoam source handmade wood products in South and Southeast Asia and ship them to Canada for a final tweak to suit a Western design aesthetic. The resulting pieces, which highlight the wood’s grain, knots and indentations, are rustic, exotic and have minimalist shapes that belong in modern homes”. (Toronto Life)
Renewal and regeneration are pillars of the Artemano philosophy. On a constant search for new ways to reveal the timeless beauty of old wood, Artemano rescues the wood from old Indonesian fishing boats, railway ties – or sleepers – from India, old construction wood from Thailand, as well as salvaged drift wood and storm-felled trees. Furniture crafted from reclaimed wood is steeped in history and character, breathing new life into the old. And the cycle continues.
