Tree Bench by Anton Alvarez
Sometimes the nicest designs are a combination of a simple concept and simple execution. Case in point: the tree furniture bench by Anton Alvarez.

Anton Alvarez is a Swedish-Chilean designer based in east London. A recent graduate of the Royal College of Art's Design Products program, Anton, along with some help from the American Hardwood Export Council created the tree furniture bench using a portable saw mill in the very spot for the tree trunk fell.

Utilizing just three cuts, while smartly leaving a portion of the trunk for support and added aesthetic quality, the bench is a perfect front hallway addition, especially for those of us who like to style while putting on our shoes, as much as we like to style walking around in them.
