Bonus Bone: Tree Tiles & Hooks

Small Tree Hook Tile, $112 per 4" tile
These are nifty. Cool Tiles has a series of metal tiles that are molded to look like tree bark and branches. They can be finished in antique brass or pewter (as seen here). The Bark tiles have huge texture but they're considered a flat tile while the Tree and Branch tiles are meant to be used as hooks.

Sadly, the website doesn't have any gallery photos of these nature imitators in action and that's probably because they're MEGA-pricey. It's fun to imagine what they'd look like in place though. I love the idea of using the bark texture as a kitchen backsplash or hanging up my bath towel on a branch

Bark Tile (in regular and course grain); Branch Hook, $94 - $110 (EACH)
For these reasons, I, Cardboard, declare this a Design Boner.
