A prehistoric look gets modern
The multi-colored slabs are all one-of-a-kind--the result of hundreds of years of mineralization which turns them into stone--and are often works of art in and of themselves. This said, we like incorporating the natural phenomena in more functional ways.
We love this irregularly shaped side table ($548), which has a Pacific Northwest aesthetic without going too far into Twin Peaks territory. For a sleeker approach, we'll go with Hudson Furniture’s statement-making stools (price available upon request). They could almost pass for marble upon first glance.
Not ready for such a bold look? Get petrified in smaller doses with sleek accent pieces like coasters ($26), bookends ($148), magnets ($48) or even night lights ($22).
And, of course, there's the gift-giving angle: Swap a fossilized cheese tray ($137) or serving platter ($200) for your slate or granite go-to. Who knew going prehistoric could feel so modern?
