If ‘burr walnut veneer’ sounds familiar to you, chances are you’ve seen an item of walnut veneer furniture before and marvelled at its delicate beauty and inviting glossiness. ‘Burrs’ are in actual fact a deformity in trees and are created when the tree undergoes some kind of stress such as an injury. They create fascinating patterns in the fabric of the tree and the resulting wood is highly prized for its rarity.

What you should know about burr walnut veneers

By definition, veneers are very thin pieces of wood that are attached by glue to other panels of wood in furniture manufacture. One of the advantages of using veneering in furniture design is the stability it provides. While solid wood may split with age and use, veneering relies upon multiple pieces of wood, meaning warping and splitting is far less likely. It is also true to say that the cost of creating hardwood furniture from burr walnut is often very high. By using burr walnut veneers instead it is possible to make furniture with the same incredible aesthetic at a more affordable price.

Burr walnut veneers have been used to create furniture in many different eras of design, but the Art Deco period created a particular affinity for the look, with celebrated manufacturers Epstein Bros using burr walnut in many of their creations. Browse our collection and you will find some gorgeous designs like a Willy Rizzo style coffee table and a Maple & Co. dressing table.
