From Pencil Shaving Sinks to Wooden Wayfarers

 - Sep 14, 2012
These bizarre wooden products are the future of retail. From sunglasses made of the material to sinks that resemble pencil shavings, designers have proven that the possibilities are endless when it comes to wood as an inspiration.

Often giving off a more refined and expensive look than other materials do, wood evokes a natural but elegant feel to wherever it's adopted. An increasingly popular look for gadgetry, iPhone cases as well as laptop holders have gotten a wooden makeover. Wood as a texture is also quite malleable, and can be dyed and treated to suit a variety of tastes. Whatever your preference, there's likely a timber-made creation that suits your needs and desires.

Sure to stick around for years to come, wood offers buyers a classic look that will never go out of style.
