The wonder of Walnut

Walnut is a soft hued, warm wood that is often associated with the mid-century modern style. Renowned for helping designers obtain matt finishes and sculpted edges, this durable wood has been used throughout the home, including sideboards, credenzas and for legs on upholstery items. Although classified as a ‘hardwood’, walnut has excellent woodworking qualities, and it’s this versatility that has enhanced its popularity within the furniture industry.

Although it is primarily associated with furniture created in the mid-century era, walnut is still widely used today. For a contemporary take on this wood, pair it with copper or brassy tones to create a warming feel to your living space. Reflect light around the room with copper pendant lamps, or place candles in copper candelabras for a softer mood.

Keeping hues warm throughout the room enhances the beautiful tones and grain of the wood. Featuring a sofa with walnut detailing like The Sixty Six, in a fabric such as Tonic Orange, makes the room feel energised and inviting, creating the perfect space to curl up. Accessorise with some bold scatters for a playful vibe, and to provide an even more comfortable environment.
