It's officially autumn so I am falling for these tactile treasures for the table or desk,  all formed in warm, wondrous wood.

The WallpaperSTORE* edit, selected from all over the globe, has been carved and crafted from solid walnut, oak and mahogany plus the rather more exotic sounding samak and Japanese kalopanax, before being hand-waxed or oiled for your pleasure.
