~interior wood piles, a good or bad idea?~

Probably for about the past year I have become obsessed with the look of interior wood piles.
They have a modern rustic look to them, are functional and stylish at the same time.
I would love to replicate this look BUT, we have a gas fireplace, so it would be more for looks and not functional at all. I don't know if I am willing to give up valuable space for this.
Also, bugs? I don't want to bring a bunch of critters into the house.
What are your thoughts on this?
I really love how The Ranch Uncommon displays theirs:

This takes my breath away:

Who knew a log pile could look so sleek and modern?

Doesn't this just look so cozy?

I have actually had this pinned and printed out because I swore I'd make one someday.

And then theres this photo that makes me want to run to the woods and start chopping trees down, haha.

So what do you think? Do you like the look, or is it really not practical with a gas fireplace?
I think I already know your answer.......

I think it looks great but there is absolutely no way I would bring in wood from outside. You most definitely will be brining in bugs and spiders that are burrowed in the wood. We live in the country and do not keep our wood pile even next to the house because of bugs/snakes.

I LOVE the look as well, but as you've already guessed, I wouldn't risk bringing in all those bugs and rodents either. Maybe the look outside by the fire pit? It will look great with the fall decor too. Thanks for all your inspiring ideas!

In addition to the bug issue, I have also heard it is not a good idea to store wood inside the home if anyone has allergy/asthma issues. The heat inside your house allows mold to grow and release the spores into the air, which you will then breathe in.

I have had a wood pile as decoration in my house for at least ten years. I was very careful bringing it in to make sure I didn't bring in mice or snakes. I know there were bugs in it that couldn't be helped, but I keep it on a slate floor. I would be cautious around carpeting or a wood floor, but bugs haven't been an issue for me.

I love the look, but I would be too worried about bugs to actually do it. We don't even keep our woodpile anywhere near the house because of snakes and the possibility of termites.

Every time I see an interior wood pile I cringe. Growing up we heated our house with a wood burning fireplace and my Dad was adamant about not only not having the wood pile next to the house but also not piling wood on the back porch. We (mainly us kids) would have to run out to the wood pile to get a log every time we needed one. His reason was termites. We had an old copper boiler that sat next to the fireplace and he would allow one or two extra logs in there, inside something metal, but he didn't even let logs sit on the hearth. My dad grew up in eastern Kansas on a farm.

We always had a wood pile in our family room with a large fire place. Not sure why we didn't try to build the pile upwards like was done in these pictures. Cool idea.

The wooden concept also important in terms of the trees. From which tree the plies comes from.

Hi thanks for including me in this beautiful inspo group! It's been 2 years and since we built this wood niche and we rely on this pile for our heat in the winter making it super convienent more so then decorative. Since the wood is dried out enough before being brought in, I can tell you we don't have bugs snakes and spiders running about. If your wood is kept outdoors of course they will enjoy hanging out in there☺. To each their own, for us it works!

I had a space custom built for an interior wood pile, and I absolutely love it. It adds so much warmth and texture, and we haven't had issues with bugs at all. I'm so glad we did it.

I Read the article of a very great spell caster and it seems very helpful
to me. I haven’t had the chance to have a proper relationship with my ex
because we work together. This will be the final week or work and then I
wont be around him constantly. Unfortunately, I broke one of the rules in
the article and have been sleeping with him. Something I’m not proud of,
especially since he has a girlfriend. Not to mention that she’s a girl he
dated off and on for 3 years before he dated me.
When I asked him why he kept sleeping with me even though he was in a
relationship, his response was because I wanted it, and he wantve him all to
myself. That was when i read about Dr alexzander on how he help people in
saving their relationship and i was really desperate for his help. There
were things in our relationship that were tough. We traveled for 4 months
right in the beginning, and it was hard due to different expectations. When
we returned our living situation was unstable which caused a lot of stress
on my end. And when I ask why he didn’t give me a chance to make things
better he said he gave me tons of chances. Oh, and he compared our
relationship with his past. He says that things were great, and then they
went bad really fast, and that why his back with is Ex. Because it at least
took them years for things to get that bad. So i was very sad and
disappointing and decided to contact this spell caster for help with tears
running out of my eyes and Dr alexzander promised to make things right in
my relationship and also assured me that my boyfriend is going to come back
to me within 78hrs. At first i was shock and didn't believe him because i
thought it was impossible to do. But i gave it a try and trusted him. Dr
alexzander asked for my details and his, then guarantee me of his return.
Truly my ex lover started calling me and also begging me to forgive him and
that's his willing to give us a second chance, then promised me never to
love any other woman apart from me. it all seem like a miracle to me till
now. Dr alexzander. Words can't express how i feel right now. it been 2
month now since you caste that love spell for me and nothing have gone bad
between us. his now caring more than ever and also the loving kind of Man i
have ever wanted for myself in life. I thank you Dr alexzander for saving
my relationship. Indeed you are the best. I want to use this media to share
my testimony for the whole world to see and know that there is still hope
in your broken relationship, No matter how bad it seems don't give up hope
and also contact this man who saved my own. you can reach him through his whatsapp number +2348075823891 or contact him
direct with his email address [email protected] I thank you
Dr alexzander for helping me and i will always share my testimony in every
social media or place i may go to.
