Focus on walnut:
our bathroom collections
Walnut is making a big comeback in modern homes.
In recent decades, light-coloured woods with no obvious grain were the order of the day… Now, this darker wood is becoming the benchmark for furniture with character. Noble, elegant, with a touch of vintage chic, it’s wowing contemporary designers who craft it in all decorative styles, even though, let’s admit it, it’s the Scandinavian look that seems to be what it was made for!
Walnut is popping up everywhere, in the dining room, the living room and the bedroom, and it’s even playing a starring role in the bathroom! The result is a bathroom that is both elegant and characterful, easy to live with… and for a long time. Our walnut furniture stands up to repeated use and the passage of time, plus the bathroom collection has been given a water-repellent treatment that protects it from splashes.
Walnut, a wood for making “furniture that’s built to last”.
What colour is walnut?
Its colour ranges from chestnut to golden brown via red… to chocolate with a hint of purple. In short, it offers a very wide range of shades, always in deep stylish tones.
Which colours enhance walnut?
The possibilities are many and varied. In a light bathroom, the depth of its colour will create an interesting contrast: you can pair it with white, light grey, beige and ivory. You can also combine it with stronger colours like pink, green, yellow or royal blue to create an up-beat feel, or earthy colours like terracotta or camel to bring warmth into a room. And if you’re particularly daring, structured paint schemes where splashes of white and black blend…
Which material is right for the basin?
In short: any of them! Walnut blends equally well with marble, terrazzo, ceramic or river stone. By choosing one or the other of these materials, you will accentuate the atmosphere you want to create: natural, neo-ethnic, minimalist, Scandinavian…
At Tikamoon, we really can’t get enough of this wood. We’re not upset to see it back in the spotlight… quite the contrary! In addition to our bathroom collections, you’ll also spot it elsewhere as you browse through our site. We are featuring it in several of our furniture ranges.
