Walnut furniture love.

A little while back, I discovered some really sweet walnut furniture on this little Etsy shop. More recently, I started to notice that walnut furniture seems to be popping up all over the place. Has everyone already noticed and I am the last one? No matter. I’ve noticed. And I am liking what I’m seeing.

Sometime soon, we will need some new storage for Chet’s office, so we started looking around at credenzas/sideboards. We came across a couple on the Room and Board website and I really started lusting after the walnut versions. Like this one:

And this one:

Just the same week that I began coveting the above, we went shopping at Crate and Barrel for the first time in a long time. That’s when we happened upon this little beauty:

We do not need a desk. Not at all. But I felt this gem needed to be shared even though this photo really does not do it justice. The wood itself is so much more beautiful in person.

And, finally, although not exactly furniture, the following does maintain the walnut theme of this post. I had seen this Limited Edition Eames Hang-It-All in the Design Within Reach catalog a while back. But I didn’t realize until I saw it over at Door Sixteen that it was also made with walnut.

Pretty, non?

So here’s the thing. During my big realization about how much I love the walnut, I also happened to notice the prices. It’s not the least expensive wood around (you can read more about why here). And since we totally cannot afford either one of those lovely Room and Board credenzas right now, Chet mentioned that he might want to try and make something similar. But we were wondering how much we’d save because it seems like the materials might still be quite expensive. More research needed there. But in the meantime I thought I’d go ahead and share my new found fascination with this gorgeous wood.
