I like coconuts. Seriously. When you grow up in the Caribbean, they become familiar and attractive, not to mention a delicious source of coconut jelly and water. I actually like their fuzzy shells and the way they look inside when you split them open. But as home decor? Never quite imagined them that way — probably because I never imagined they could look so good.
This modern, organic bowl is made of a naturally shed coconut pod, molded into a beautiful, sculptural form. Though I’m not sure how useful it would be as a bowl, it certainly has potential as a unique candle stand (shown above with the Joya Tumbler candle) or a standalone sculpture. However you choose to use it, one thing is clear: It will make a great statement in eco-chic style.
Why it’s Green:
- Made of a naturally shed coconut husk, so it is sustainable
- Recycles a part of the coconut that would otherwise be thrown away
