The Beauty of Driftwood


Weathered by Water, Wind and Sand - Driftwood is Nature's Sculpture

As many beach lovers can agree, finding that special piece of driftwood that has been worn to a silvery white finish from sometimes years of floating in the surf, is a great treasure. Weathered by the saltwater, sun, wind and sand, driftwood takes on a sculptural quality.  It is beautiful by itself, but is also a material that artists use in creating furniture and art-sculptures. We are lucky enough to have discovered artisans who have created masterpieces from their collections of driftwood for generations.  They learned the craft from true artisans that crafted sculptures and functional art in the Florida Keys and as far away as Bali, decades ago. It is, indeed, an artistic skill to have the eye to place the pieces of driftwood together to create exquisite furniture and art. Each piece has to be placed just so, cut and leveled to be beautiful and functional. It is the perfect blend of art and nature. Each piece is unique and custom made for our clients. We offer a collection of handcrafted driftwood creations that are made into stunning pieces from dining tables, coffee tables, end tables, mirrors, wall hangings and sculptures to lamps and chandeliers.


Driftwood Creations


"In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted and bent in weird ways, and they are still beautiful." - Alice Walker


Incorporating Sculptural Driftwood Creations in our homes emphasizes our love of the sea.  The salty driftwood elements are unique treasures that evoke memories of summer days. Driftwood dining tables and coffee tables are handcrafted to order and come in many sizes and 2 finishes - natural and white washed.  Each piece is beautifully made to last for generations. Our driftwood Orb chandelier has been a long time favorite. The scale is massive and it makes an incredible natural statement in a dining room or entry. Driftwood Furnishings mix just as well in a Beach Bungalow, as it does in an Oceanfront Estate.

The beauty of the natural twists and textures of worn driftwood can be seen in this detail of the driftwood dining table. We sometimes place up-lights or faux votive candles in the base of the table to enhance the sculptural quality at night....the results are breathtaking and great for special events.

F.A.Q

Will driftwood furniture last?

Driftwood furniture is made only from strong pieces of driftwood. Our driftwood tables are hand-crafted and designed to hold a heavy glass top and are extremely strong. The base is evenly finished and lightly sealed. If you use a driftwood piece outside, please cover when not in use and over the years apply more clear sealant to keep the finish pristine. These are heirloom quality pieces and should last for generations.

Can a driftwood table be shipped?

Driftwood tables are crated to ship anywhere in the country. Please note, there will be additional fees due to the size and nature of the product. Table bases require custom crates to protect the base. We cannot calculate exact shipping fees until the crate is built, then measured & weighed to know where it would fit on the LTL freight truck. 

Where does the driftwood come from?

Driftwood is floating wood that has washed ashore due to the actions of the elements. Most of us connect this type of twisted, rustic wood with the ocean but driftwood can also be found near lakes and rivers. Since the wood can float for quite a bit of time, it is often bleached by the sun, pitted and porous. 

Most of the driftwood used for furniture is found along riverbanks, at the edges of lakes, or along the beach. It's a misconception that driftwood is only found on a beach. Rivers & lakes are all good places to get driftwood. In the state of Florida, anyone can collect driftwood pieces. 

The cones make for beautiful accent pieces indoors or out. The planks when hung parallel to the floor look gorgeous as a mantle, an accent piece over the headboard. For table bases, pieces are hand selected and custom built to your specifications. The wood is sandblasted and waxed by hand. Perfectly leveled and securely bolted, hidden within the design. The wood is treated with sealant with little to no sheen. 
Available finishes: natural beige, white washed, and natural light brown. Specialty finishes or deeper finishes will require an additional charge based on the size of the table base and final color.
