Guest Picks: Designer Trees
I adore these retro Skog lamps by Caroline Olsson. The Skog series consists of several lights in different sizes, shapes and colors. They are all made of mouth-blown crystal with an oak base. If you were wondering, the word "skog" is Norwegian for forest.
Kuksa Finnish Camping Cup - CAD 65
I just want to reach out and touch these Kuksa Finnish Camping Cups. Forget the camping — I just want one for my morning cuppa!
Door Coat Hooks - EUR 25
Here's another simple way of bringing in the outdoors. Check out these charming wooden hooks by Papi Luc. They are made of hazelnut, and each hook is unique. If you're handy with a saw, then you can always have a go at making your own.

Landscape - Tray - EUR 42
I'm lovin' this landscape tray by Little Studio. Yes, yes and yes!
Japanese Tree Garden
This is just such a charming idea. The pieces were created from different types of scrap wood that designer Mark Giglio turned into a forest.
I have never seen a wooden watch before, so I was pretty stoked to stumble across this. This maple piece from WeWood is 100 percent wood, hypo-allergenic and completely free of toxic chemicals. What's more is WeWood partners with the American Forests organization to plant one tree for every watch purchased.
Wooden Chef Set - $88
The thing I love most about wooden toys is that they look great even when they are not being played with. In addition, Soopsori's toys are handmade from sustainably harvested wood and finished with natural oils. Hurray!
This beautiful oak-inspired porcelain is by Elisabeth Dunker of Fine Little Day. These are test pieces, but they will be available to buy soon!

Oh, I can smell the pine! This is another tree-inspired goody from Fine Little Day.
