current obsession: wood bead decor

I'm been crushing hard on any decor item that involves wood beads. I wouldn’t call it a new obsession, and perhaps it’s not as current as it once was. But the heart wants what it wants. And right now, wood beads are such a fun element to add to any space.

It all started with the wood bead chandelier.  You've probably seen this item, it seems to have picked up steam, and is widely available online, and in stores such as West Elm and World Market.  I love the whimsical, beach vibes the white-washed wood beads give the traditional style chandelier. I’m not sure how practical it is to give off light, but it sure is pretty to look at!

I’ve also noticed that wood beads have worked their way into the decor realm, in the form of garlands and necklaces.  They bring to mind mala beads, but are often chunkier, tied together with rope or hemp. In any case, they are an easy way to add some style to your coffee table, or shelf.  Again, they emit that relaxed, cool vibe with minimal effort.

The third common wood bead decor comes to us via the nursery, again in garlands and mobiles. There seems to be a shift to more natural products for babies including wood toys, which makes sense to add those elements in the decor as well. Again it’s that whimsical nature, yet the texture and softness of the these round shapes.
