Wood turned into stone
Also known as fossilised wood, it is created when trees are completely buried under mud sediments or volcanic ash over many millennia. Elements such as carbon were absorbed by the wood transforming it into stone. Petrified wood gives an interior a rich and organic look combined with the glamorous touch of polished stone. Now this design of millions of years in the making is new again with its natural cracks, and splits, all lovingly embraced to fit in a contemporary setting.
