Real wood is much better quality than many of the MDF and plywood alternatives we see today and the rich hues found in walnut shelves make them a stunning addition to all interiors.

The history of using walnut in furniture

Walnut first became a highly prized wood in the U.K. during Queen Anne’s reign during the early 18th century. It was used above all for making fine furniture and was celebrated for its superb colouration. But where do walnut trees typically grow? Walnut is native to North America and two varieties are most commonly found in elegant walnut furniture: the juglans regia and juglans nigra. This botanical name, juglans, stems from Roman mythology. It was believed that Jupiter snacked on walnuts when he lived on earth and the Romans nicknamed them ‘the royal nut of Jupiter’.
