While these tables may look like they’re about to get up and walk out the door, don’t worry — they’ll stay put. Designed by Nicole Belanger these spectacular Nickadoo Tree Trunk Tables [1] have been handcrafted from the trunks of fallen trees found in a Quebec forest, or trees that have been cut by local lumber companies. Each trunk is cleaned (without chemicals), sanded, hand-polished, sent to a kiln for a few weeks to dry, and then set atop metal legs. Unfortunately, if you aren’t from the Great White North you’ll have to take a road trip to get your hands on one of these beauties – Nickadoo only delivers within the country.
