Elegant Strength: Custom Walnut Furniture
Elegant strength is the best way to describe the character of walnut. A dense, hard wood that can range in color from creamy white to dark brown, walnut also has beautiful grain figuring that by itself is striking but can also complement other woods or materials such as tile, glass, or metal. Walnut is an excellent choice for your custom furniture. If you have a project in mind that must combine beauty and durability and need some inspiration, take a look at these examples of custom walnut furniture by CustomMade woodworkers.
Walnut in Any Style
Do you have classic tastes or are you looking for something non-traditional? Take a look at the custom walnut dressers below. James H. Little Handcrafted Fine Furniture designed this walnut dresser to house a customer’s jewelry and handbags. The walnut grain, matched to flow together, complements the floating holly wood top and creates a sense of stability and security, which is quite fitting for a piece designed to store valuables.
The walnut dresser by Fine Ideas Furniture evokes strength, too, but with a very different look. As Dan Rieple writes, “In life we are hit with a myriad of adversities and even trauma, however it is a divine mystery that these hits can result in greater character, and even make us more interesting. This piece took a hit, and yet despite THE EVENT so to speak, still functions beautifully.” The swirling figure of the walnut and its beautiful deep brown color give this piece a sense of depth that seems to anchor the motion of the dresser’s lines.
Walnut to Complement or Contrast
Walnut works well with other woods and media. Custom made walnut tables, such as this walnut burl side table by Steelhead Studios, can showcase this wood’s design range. The contrasting tabletop combination of glass and walnut burl brings texture and breathing space to this contemporary table. The iron frame is also complemented by reclaimed walnut insets.
This walnut and tile sofa table by The Plane Edge, LLC, was custom designed for taking meals while watching TV. The earth tone tiles and rich brown walnut complement each other and create a cozy, comfortable feeling perfect for this piece’s intended use.
Like an accomplished performer, walnut has a strong identity that can work in any style and can play the lead or a supporting role in any furniture design.
