I was looking for styling accessories for a home that I'm currently decorating and one of the last things on my list was to find a wooden bowl for use in styling an oversized coffee table. I figured I would find something pretty quickly (and rather inexpensively) but I found that quite a bit of the wooden bowls on the market that are cheap, look that way, and also closely resemble salad bowls which is fine if you are preparing lunch, but aren't necessarily something that you want to put on display. The ones that aren't cheap? Well, those are exquisite, beautiful, and actual works of art and of course, expensive. Case in point, the live edge wooden bowl collection by Vermont based Andrew Pearce.
I have never heard of the brand before, but after looking through their wares they quickly were added to my short list of vendors (case in point these awesome live edge shelves) given how beautiful their products are. It was the live edge wooden bowls that first caught my eye and as much as a pice of wood can be a "showstopper" these beauties can absolutely stop my show any day of the week because I really just want to use them in all my future projects. The bowls come in two finishes, cherry and black walnut (my favorite) and I love that you can get them in a number of different sizes based on your need and budget.
I could see the 20" one in a center of a dining table filled with seasonal items throughout the year, and the little ones (10-17") styled out with books on an oversized coffee table or on a bookshelf. I love how unique each bowl is and how much simplicity they can bring to any space. I haven't ordered one yet, but I'm certainly bookmarking these for use for future styling projects. Bringing a piece like this into your home can add so much warmth and character (like books, plants, and ceramics do) and I can't think of a better way to do that than with one of these bowls. Xx
