Decorating with driftwood is a big trend in coastal design. From organic driftwood wreaths to contemporary driftwood lighting, the pale wood's sculptural quality adds a natural element to any room. While driftwood is a natural choice for coastal style, it can also work in other décor styles, like modern and contemporary. Here is some driftwood décor to inspire you.
A driftwood wreath is a simple, organic sculptural design element. These wreaths are an easy DIY project that have loads of coastal style.

Like the driftwood wreath, this group of mirrors has an organic starburst shape. Hang a larger version over the sink in the powder room or above a console table in the foyer.

A side table with a driftwood base and a glass top brings a modern, organic element to a living room or bedroom. The driftwood base is very sculptural.

This driftwood covered glass hurricane shade is no longer available from Anthropologie but could be easily replicated by a clever DIYer. Imagine the shadows and light when the candle is lit.

Driftwood bowls are small sculptures for your coffee table, console table or self. They are also perfect for holding other natural elements like pine cones, rocks or shells.

This gorgeous driftwood lamp is a DIY project that can be easily duplicated using simple modern lamps as the bases. The organic driftwood looks wonderful against the ornate giltwood mirror.

The sculptural quality of driftwood makes it a great choice for a centerpiece for a dining table or coffee table. Adding candles turns it into a natural candelabra.
