For the Love of Wood

I hope you're having a great summer. You might be enjoying your holidays feet in the sand, or you're may be hiking in the mountains or worse you're still sitting at your desk, here is a nice discovery I recently made that I wanted to share with you.  
 
THE PARIS MUSHROOMS by Briki Vroom Vroom

 
 

Say hello to this cute Mushroom family made of Alder wood. Each little piece required a great woodcraft combining precision and the love of wood. 

Because each wood is so specific, I wanted to tell you a little bit more about this one. Although classified as a hardwood, alder is one of the softest of all hardwoods ranking just above pine. It has a light brown color with subtle grain patterns that are straighter than other hardwoods, such as oak or ash. 

All mushrooms have then been hand-painted with soft pastel colors to brighten up any room and fit perfectly on any shelf. I hope you will appreciate their very simple and refined design as much as I do. 

Did you know that in China, the mushroom symbolizes long life, happiness and rebirth? :)
Which color combination do you prefer?
