As the weather turns chillier here in the Northern Hemisphere, it seems like a good time to look at fireplace log holders. (Sorry, those of you down under!) The firewood rack above comes from Finland, but the company has dealers in a number of countries. [via From Europe]
Staying with the modern look, Blomus makes a number of stainless steel wood racks. This was the first one to catch my eye, but it's worth looking at their other products, too.
Enclume makes a number of notable hammered steel log racks. Some are just for logs; this one has space for kindling and newspaper, too.
And then there's this wall-mounted wood storage rack, available for on-line purchase from Tuttobene, in Holland. [via Apartment Therapy]
And then there are the log baskets, like this one.
This lovely willow log basket was made by Katherine Lewis.
Jonathan Gordon also makes willow log baskets in four different styles.
And Joe Hogan makes a wide range of traditional Irish willow baskets, including log baskets.
This log basket comes not from an individual basketmaker, but from furniture and furnishings company Ethan Allen. Update on Sept. 16, 2013: I'm not finding this specific basket at Ethan Allen any more, but I am finding another one.
And this log carrier basket comes from Pierre Deux. Update on Sept. 16, 2013: Pierre Deux has gone out of business.
Great Green Apple's log holder is made from a combination of wrought iron and woven grass.
For yet another approach, here's a standing log carrier from L.L.Bean.
And this log tote and rack isn't lovely, but it is practical.
Of course, there's no need to restrict yourself to using these products for firewood; most of them could easily be used for other purposes.
