Those who have wanted to introduce a bit of nature into the home without having to take care of living plants will appreciate this branch railing. It brings a tree-like aesthetic to the home in a very practical and artistic way. Yet what makes this branch railing even more impressive is how it does so in such a contemporary way.

Although utterly enchanting as though straight out of a fairy tale story, the branch railing is simple enough that it isn't a jarring addition to more modern homes. Designed by interior designer Alessandro Marchelli, it lives in a residence based in Monferrato, Italy, and provides a finishing touch to an austere space accented with raw wooden beams.
