A rotating side table that I found at a Crate and Barrel outlet would be the burl wood gateway before I secured a credenza through Kaiyo last summer. Then a few months later, I manifested the armoire of my dreams from Instagram to my living room. Even though I’ve checked off most of my burl boxes (I recently added a coffee table to the rotation), I’ll never stop wanting more. At the moment, I’m still thinking about this burl bookcase, and I’ve been pining for a similar wall unit to take care of my shelving situation once and for all, but I have my heart set on the Janet Schweitzer for Pace Collection piece which requires unlimited funds. Here’s to manifesting that I will live in a house with a burl wood dining table someday. In the meantime, these are the burl wood pieces I highly recommend adding to your cart. You’re welcome!

Fleur Tall Burl Wood Drink Table

Sometimes you just need a tiny table that can only hold a glass and nothing else; it’s functional and serves a purpose. This is what I’m choosing to believe in the thick of brat summer, you’re either with me or against me!

1980s Postmodern Burl Side Tables

This might be the quirkiest pair of end tables that I’ve ever seen. There’s no better combo than bentwood and burl wood veneer, that’s a match made in home decor heaven.

Emma Roberts and I seemingly have a lot in common, including this coffee table that I scored at the RH outlet. Their entire Bardot Burl collection is delicious, but my preference is the caramel oak burl.

Sabal Console Table by Carly Cushnie

Carly Cushnie really matched my freak with her debut furniture collection for Lulu and Georgia, this burl console table with striped drawers is especially striking.

CB2 Marisa Burl Wood Desk

Would you feel better about yourself if you were sitting behind the same desk as your favorite influencer? Designed in partnership with Evan Jerry of Studio Anansi, you’ve likely spotted it in the homes of Emma Chamberlain, Orion Carloto, and so many other certified It girls that I can’t keep track of.

Vintage Burl Dresser by Roland Carter

You know someone has hit the jackpot if they own vintage Lane Furniture. Fate was on my side the day that Seo Wade Wood (formerly Dutch Oven Finds) posted pieces from the set that had been on my wish list for years on their Instagram; I have never slid into the DM’s faster, I wasted no time to make it mine. For me, the most satisfying part was that I didn’t have to pay thousands of dollars—it takes a certain level of delusion to persist and mine really paid off! You really can’t go wrong with any of the pieces from this collection.

Jonathan Adler Bond Credenza

Jonathan Adler knows how to make a credenza feel sexy. I was lucky enough to get this secondhand from Kaiyo about a year ago and it completely shifted the vibe of my living room. What I love most about this design is how it projects the illusion of a floating console with the acrylic legs. (Since I live in a small space, I wound up picking this over a vintage Lane Furniture dresser because of the measurements.) It’s currently on sale, so…. You know what to do.

Who doesn’t love the curve of a waterfall coffee table?

Technically this is faux burl, but it’s still a very good looking nightstand.

Milo Baughman Style Mid-Century Modern Burl Wood Queen Size Headboard, Circa 1970s

If I saw this in a guy’s bedroom I would have to marry him on sight…. It’s giving husband material. If you’re fully committed, go for the platform bed, my king.
