No two driftwood hooks are alike: designer Kiel Mead’s collection for NY-based manufacturer Areaware is built around wood scraps he collects at the shore:

Above: Mead collects smooth, bleached driftwood pieces and transforms them into Driftwood Wall Hooks. Stained in a variety of 10 different finishes, our favorites are natural and black. The hooks are available for $25 apiece from Areaware.

Above: The Areaware Black Driftwood Wall Hooks evoke images of campfires and charred wood; $25 each.

Above: The Areaware Natural Driftwood Hook is $25 at Horne.

Above: The individuality of the hooks makes an artful composition when grouped together. Each measures between 7 and 12 inches in length.
