See the wonders of wood!

I have always been amazed by places and pieces made of wood

This is Pan de Amerikina, a rustic and shabby restaurant in my hometown. Aside from the sumptuous meals they offer, the place is known for it's vintage theme.
Most of the restaurant's materials and interiors were made of antique wood.
Inside the restaurant are wooden benches, tables and huge tree trunks which I believe serve as actual posts of the place.

One of the attractions in the restaurant is a hanging bridge that connects two old trees

Not a picture perfect hanging bridge, but notice the wooden branches attached to the terrace's railings.

Some of you might remember these pictures

These were taken from my last out of town vacay at Puerto Galera. These relaxing furnitures belong to the owner of the resort that housed us for three days. I believe the owner is a fan of wooden furniture. Most of his pieces were made from varieties of Philippine wood.

The two comfortable couches were made from Philippine rattan. The bed that overlooks the beach was made from trunks of old trees and scraps of heavy wood.

The other wooden furniture pieces that mesmerized me are these

  1. OK! Where! Is! That?!?! I'm going! I LOVE your post! Please let me know where to find this near spot. xo

  2. I love visiting places where the architecture is unique. When we lived on Guam we took a few trips to Bali, Indonesia ... it seemed that EVERYTHING was made out of bamboo. The entire place felt like we were living in a dream! Great post.

  3. I'm going to tell my sister to visit this restaurant when she gets to Pinas! :) thanks for the idea!

  4. This restaurant looks like my kind of place with all the old wood. Great pictures! I had to laugh at the big "no smoking" sign." Not a good idea with all that old wood around:-)
