Good, Better, Best: Branch/Root Console Tables

I've been noticing these branch-base console tables at a few of my usual design haunts, and thought perhaps it's a growing a trend. I'm really loving the organic, textural quality they bring to a room, especially considering that many homes are leaning towards a more pared-down, modern look these days.

Good: Shown above is the Ballard Designs Faux Bois Demilune Table ($699, reduced from $1,495). I certainly love its half-moon shape and how the table top looks like a slice off of an old tree stump. But as the name suggests, the base is actually made from a concrete-like resin over a sturdy metal frame, not genuine branches. That's a turn off to me, although the price is more affordable than others.

I have two more tables to show you, so

.

Better (middle): The base of the Jayson Home & Garden Grapevine Console ($2,295) is made from natural grapevine: one point for nature! I like the juxtaposition of the glass top with its organic details. I also like its breadth; it could really be a focal point in a foyer.

Best (left): My favorite of the three is the Dransfield & Ross Root Console ($2,799). Like the Jayson console, it's crafted from natural tree roots, giving it an organic appeal, but it brushes off an overly rustic look with its handpainted white lacquer finish. The modern white finish makes the outdoorsy vibe of the table more appropriate for a contemporary home.

This is too cool, the price not so much, but the table is amazing.
