Recycled Wine Cask Hotel Rooms

Four of the rooms at the Hotel de Vrouwe van Stavoren in the Netherlands are made from recycled wine casks. And yes, in case you're wondering they are definitely larger than your average wine barrel at 14,500 litres vs. the 225 litres or approximately 59 gallons you're probably used to seeing. Each wine cask is large enough to accommodate two single beds with a sitting room and bathroom.

Natural Salt Tealight Holder

This tea light holder is hand carved from a block of natural salt crystal mined from the earth. In addition to adding a soft glow to your table, as the salt warms from the flame of the candle, it also emits negative ions to purify the air.
