I love the the idea of offsetting modern interiors with natural elements, and Brent Comber‘s stunning wooden objects would look right at home in a sitting room outfitted with acrylic Louis Ghost chairs. In my mind’s eye, the result is an unusual, yet balanced juxtaposition of organic vs. manmade. The Vancouver-based designer started working with natural elements when he ran his landscaping business and through a search to restore his prewar-era home using older wood he found a passion for the organic material and ran with it. In addition to his gorgeous objects, Comber also designs interior spaces and sculptures. Here are a few of his pieces that I’m smitten with . . .

    Hello Lovely. I just popped by to say hello and see how you were doing. Seems like you are up to all kinds of bfuetiaul. It’s such a pretty time in Marrakech and I was just thinking of you and hoping you were well!

    Very clean and serene loionkg interiors… I like a little more colour but was impressed with the way they used the rusted iron wall art and I loved the natural wood coffee table.
