Stump Style

We're on the road traveling between Texas, Louisiana, and finally Oklahoma; saying our goodbyes to family and friends. While I'm out traveling across the country here's some design inspiration for your reading pleasure.

Does the possibility of bugs and critters lurking inside give you the heebie jeebies? How about a fake one instead? This rug is pretty sweet.

What do you think of the new trend of using tree stumps to bring the outdoors in (literally?)
