Rich And Elegant Walnut Wood Furniture
Wood furniture is desirable for it’s warm, timeless look and durability. There are so many types of wood furniture that you can choose. And walnut wood furniture can be a good choice. Walnut wood furniture pieces are available in a wide variety of styles and finishes. From traditional dining sets with curvaceous lines and cabriole legs to modern dressers with straight lines and sharp angles, walnut is a versatile wood that suits almost any decor. The rich colors found in walnut wood furniture add design drama to any room. The heartwood, which is the wood on the inside of a walnut tree, ranges from light to dark brown and is sometimes streaked with green and purple. On the other hand, a walnut tree’s outer wood, which is also known as sapwood, ranges from pale yellow to creamy white and when combined with dark walnut creates a stunning piece with striking contrast. The grain in walnut wood is typically straight but can also display a curly or wavy pattern, depending on the tree.
Walnut wood furniture is suitable for almost any type of indoor climate — humid or dry. Even though this wood is resistant to warping and only incurs very slight shrinkage, walnut furniture should remain in an indoor environment. You might shorten the usable life and durability of a walnut piece if you expose it to the outdoor elements on a patio, deck or porch. Keep walnut furniture out of direct sunlight inside your home since the sun can cause dark-colored walnut to lighten over time.
