Are you in the market for new wooden furniture or eager to learn more about wood craftsmanship? Whether you’re a seasoned furniture connoisseur or a curious beginner, understanding the types of wood available is crucial in making an informed decision. Taking time to learn about the diverse array of wood suitable for furniture will shed light on the unique characteristics that make quality wooden furniture desirable. Learning about the different types of wood furniture will help you choose pieces that not only fit your style but stand the test of time.
What Does Solid Wood Mean?
In a market flooded with engineered wood products, our commitment lies in offering only the finest quality—real wood. Engineered wood may be a popular choice due to its availability and lower price point, but it is of varying quality and does not offer the same level of timeless charm and durability. When you explore our showroom, rest assured that you’re investing in authentic, enduring craftsmanship that brings warmth and character to your living space.
Hardwoods for Furniture
Hardwoods are renowned for their strength and longevity. They grow at a slower rate and are more fire-resistant, making them scarcer than their softwood counterparts. The heartwood, or central core of the tree, features rich color tones, making them desirable for timeless pieces.
Whether white oak or red oak, both varieties have an attractive open grain, are dense and hard-wearing, and make beautiful furniture pieces. It is especially known for being more resistant to stains and scratches, making it an ideal choice for furniture pieces that see heavy use, such as dining room tables.
If you’re looking for a piece that has a painted or distressed finish for your home, brown maple would be a great option. Brown maple stains can range anywhere from light to dark brown, cream, or tan depending on the look you’re going for in your home. It is a great option if you are looking for a classic, durable, and affordable option.
Ranging from dark browns to cool-toned greys, an elm wood stain could be just what you need to tie your home together. Elm goes best with warm soft whites and other neutral tones. We offer 10 different shades of Elm at The Wood Carte.
If you are looking for a brown or reddish brown stain option then hickory is for you! This dense wood is built to last because of how solid it is compared to some other types. Hickory can provide a quality look and feel in your home with its strong and durable nature.
Walnut has a rich grain and is renowned for its strength and variety of colors that appear in the straight grain. As a highly sought-after wood that is more scarce than other hardwoods, it can be more expensive, but it makes beautifully hand-crafted pieces.
