Did you know that the zodiac signs are divided into the four elements of fire, earth, air and water? Our homies, the Astrotwins (Tali and Ophira Edut) break it down for us in The New Bohemians Handbook. If you are a Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn, your element is earth and chances are you are drawn to wood. Wood symbolizes slow and steady growth, grounding, and being deeply rooted like a tall, healthy, jungalicious tree.
Regardless of your zodiac sign, incorporating a few wooden pieces is always a good idea! Wood brings balance and grounding to your home. A hand-carved wooden coffee table, a mid-century modern console, or a dining table are great statement pieces that come in a variety of different woods. If baby steps are more your thing, keep an eye out for a wooden jewelry box, serving dish, or a pair of candlesticks at the next flea.
