Wooden Bowls Bring Nature Inside Your Home

I’ve never met a wooden bowl I didn’t like. They have timeless beauty with organic appeal and look great with every decorating style.

A wooden dough bowl is a huge favorite with fans of farmhouse style. It looks wonderful no matter what it cradles inside.

An over-sized dough bowl takes up residence on the lower shelf of a living room coffee table. Natural wood is perfect for bringing a bit of the outdoors inside.

I recently bought a wood carving book for my husband, hoping to pique his interest in whittling wooden spoons for his beloved wife. I think he’ll need to add wooden bowls to his list of carving projects.

I have a passion for all things made from real wood. Especially hand carved bowls and spoons. You can purchase bowls like the one shown below from Zach LaPerriere who carves from ancient trees in Alaska.

Isn’t this wooden bowl at the foot of the bed perfect for holding yarn and knitting supplies? I recently purchased a rustic wood bowl for my dining table. I created a little vignette with it that I’ll share soon.

  1. I couldn’t agree more! I try to get a wooden bowl from our travels, preferably artisan made. It has made a lovely collection. I love your choices!

  2. I too collect artisan wooden bowls , and have all sizes , they hold a few of my other collections. Thanks for these examples.

  3. The bowl at the foot of the bed with yarn in it??? That home obviously does not have cats. I know you can imagine the damage just waiting to happen. 🙂

    I love wooden bowls but find that the artisan created bowls are beyond my budget. My daughter is a potter and there is an artist in her co-op group that creates wood pieces, so I may have to see if she can get me a deal on one – or if she can wrangle one for me as a Christmas gift – even better.

    You posted some beautiful examples and I’m looking forward to seeing your new wooden bowl purchase.
