No matter if you’re looking for an updated set of dining chairs or a brand new Amish-made bed, solid Walnut wood is an excellent choice. Check out our tips for buying Walnut furniture below:

  • Expect to see a few different tones - Because the sapwood of solid walnut can be a creamy white and the heartwood tends to be light brown to dark brown, the difference in color is typically pretty distinct. You’ll notice these varying tones more in larger pieces like desks and tables, which only adds to their stunning appeal.
  • Solid Walnut is a solid choice - Walnut wood is known for its hardness, ranking right between Cherry and Hickory, which makes it an extremely durable, long-lasting option for all sorts of furniture, including highly-used pieces like dining tables and chairs.
  • Natural is sometimes better - If you’re looking for solid wood furniture with a one-of-a-kind look, there’s no better option than Walnut. The color of natural walnut wood cannot be duplicated, simply because there are slight color variants and depth within each piece. While Countryside does offer various walnut stains and finishes, Walnut furniture is often ordered in its natural state with a clear catalyzed conversion varnish top coat. This lets you appreciate each and every exceptional detail of the stunning wood.

Bottom line: when you invest in Walnut furniture, you invest in quality, strength and beauty for years to come.
