I have to admit when the email came through requesting a tree bookshelf it took me a little by surprise. My client was looking for someone who could create a modern corner shelving unit with a twist; it had to look like it had a live tree growing up through the centre.

We settled on a relatively simple design, the real focus of the piece had to be the natural look of the trunk. I worked with the client on various designs but we settled on four chunky Oak shelves with a seamless curve filling the corner. The tree would then grow up from floor to ceiling cutting through each shelf on the way. I also suggested the shelves should appear to float next to the wall with no visible brackets.

The finished result is a truly unique piece that compliments both the work of nature and the hand of the craftsman, fitting the clients’ specification exactly.
