Petrified Wood Bookends
Petrified wood bookends are fantastic additions to natural themed or organic toned rooms.
The origins of “petrified” wood comes from the Greek word “petro”, which literally means “wood transformed to stone”. Petrified wood is just that—it’s petrified! Over a time period of millions of years, forests located in exactly the right place at exactly the right time underwent drastic changes that took an immediate effect.
Most petrified wood begins as a tree in a forest that was once covered by sediment. As the tree is trapped from exterior oxygen (needed for decomposition), the cells absorb mineral material that forms into stone and voila!—we have a petrified wood tree.
Since petrified wood can be found styled by brilliant color patterns, they make fantastic mood pieces to draw atmosphere into a room that’s designed to set a more natural look. You will notice that the addition of petrified wood of any sort immediately changes the look and feel of an entire display, simply for its unique quality texture and color patterns.
When decorating with rocks and minerals, interior designers will often seek to incorporate natural or organic colors, patterns and textures that simply cannot be found anywhere else.
Geode bookends are for those of you who would like to add some sparkle and shine to a room. You can’t go wrong with the eye-catching shimmer of crystals.
The word “geode” comes from the Greek word for “earth-like”, which hints at its natural mineral appearance. Geodes form from the pockets in layers of sediment through chemical precipitation giving them hollowed out holes covered in mineral matter.
Maybe you would like to trade in those metal bookends in for something more solid, natural and stunning at the same time?
There’s no better way to pull off the look of “luxury” than with the addition of crystals. What makes the geode bookend set such a unique items is its rich crystalline center. Geode bookends add depth to a room with natural color and interesting texture. Not to mention—they sparkle in the light!
Last on the list is the Agate Bookend—distinguished by its unique colored rings and contrasting band patterns. Agate can come in many colors and sizes—from red to blue.
The bands or ring patterns can be thick or narrow and abundant with various shades. Here we have a mix of unique colors such as rustic reds, oranges, corals and yellows to bring out the palette of a room. Agate Bookends are great décor objects for interior designers in that they display rich, nature tones that cannot so easily be recreated.
If you love to read and have an eye for the aesthetic wonder and beauty of natural interior design objects, then take your pick! The petrified wood bookends add texture, the geode bookends give a room sparkle and shine, and agate bookends compliment the color palette.
Give them as a gift!
