If you are looking to add a dash of elegance and ethnic beauty to your house, you must bring in some walnut wood lamps. These lamps bring a nice charm to the space and lend a cozy ambiance. It is not without reason that lamps made with this wood are so much in demand. Read on below for more about these attractive lamps.


The beauty of walnut wood lamps


Walnut wood is considered ideal for making furniture and ornamental accessories, the major aspect in its favor being its color which ranges between shades of grey and purple. You also get walnut wood in shades of white, gold and cream. As the wood ages, it develops a patina tint which gives a perfect antique look. It is because of this feature that it is so extensively used for making lamps.

Another advantage of walnut wood which works in favor of ornate lamps is its grain, which is wavy and curly and lends a very unique appeal. Also, the grain in this wood is uniform and typically, it does not contain uneven forms. However, if you want lamps made of such curled or wavy grains, you will have to shell out a lot of money because such woods are rare to find. So, they are very valuable. Since the grain of walnut is valued, it is usually not veneered. After the lamp is carved, it is coated with a layer of wax polish in order to prevent it from pest attacks. This is one of the checks for authentic walnut wood lamps. Veneered wood is usually not walnut, despite the almost similar color.

Costliest products are those which are made from the wood which is close to the roots. Usually, major part of this is used for furniture and the left over blocks from this part are used for making lamps and handicrafts. These are expensive. Lamps which are made of wood taken from the upper parts of the tree are cheaper.

Cost also depends on the intricacy of carving. However, in the recent times, in order to cater to contemporary style of décor, the intricacy has been reduced and designs are more solid and bolder. Semi-carved lamps are the order of the day for ethnic designs in the present times. Nevertheless, the heavily carved lamps are still the most expensive of the lot.
