Handmade in Canada, the lovely Rootsy bench by Studio Liscious wittily references tree roots with its legs, but is still straightforwardly modern on top. Made of multiple strips of end-grain birch plywood carefully glued together side by side by side, it's as strong as it is appealing.
With its sleek, modernist, midcentury chrome frame and 100-year-old reclaimed Douglas fir barn wood seat, this club chair effortlessly blends past and future. It would make an eye-catching addition to an entryway or office.
Handmade in Canada from reclaimed fallen trees, these bowls from Loyal Loot combine the natural rough textures of tree bark with a water-based furniture-grade gloss in a huge range of vibrant colors. They're gorgeous — and a great way to add interest to the dullest room.
Reminiscent of driftwood found by lakes and the sea, the "Sticks" print by Katie Ridley Murphy is a lovely reminder of the subtle beauties of nature.
Combining a sleek, modern silhouette with a richly textured surface, this modular pine storage cube would look great on its own as a side table or in multiples as shelves or a coffee table. They're perfect for tiny apartments.
Add rustic charm and comfort with this playful Birch Log pillow. A photo-realistic print adorns each cotton canvas pillow, all of which are slightly different in size. A grouping would almost look like real logs (inexplicably) stacked on your sofa.
Want that rustic look in your urban home? This gorgeous Scrapwood wallpaper brilliantly captures the warmth and texture of real wood. It would be great for a hall or feature wall — and it's available in other wood finishes too.
Add a pretty rustic note with this lovely handmade wooden stool. It would be perfect as extra seating or as a side table in the living room, bedroom or bath.
As pretty as they are practical, these handmade boards would look just as good as rustic cheese trays as they would under sliced veggies.

Lovely in its simplicity, this made-to-order wallscape of eight small wild ash branches is carefully assembled with tiny nails and then sprayed with a satin finish sealer. It's would be a wonderful delicate note in your space.
Made from rare and protected reclaimed Portuguese oak (that was felled to prevent the spread of thicket fires), this board is beautiful. Use it to serve cheese, or simply display it on its own as a sculptural conversation piece.
A great mix of rustic and contemporary style, the Twig coat hook by Studio Liscious is an elegant solution to a hallway muddle of coats, bags, hats and such — whether you live in the country or in the city.

Hand-crafted from the floor joists of centuries-old deconstructed barns, buildings and homes in the Midwestern United States, this pair of lovely wood stools has loads of character. They'd be perfect in an industrial-style kitchen.
I love this delicately drawn "Sticks in Round" print. It's a great way to add a little subtle outdoor texture to a room.
