Although you might not be familiar with the term, you’ve probably run across it on more than one occasion.
Decorative wood can feature a multitude of unusual forms and effects, and spalted wood is no exception. Spalted wood has blackish irregular lines with swirls of white grain that are caused by fungal decay. This is found in most types of trees and can result in a beautiful array of different colors and patterns depending upon the type of wood. It is this decay that creates the perfect weathered down or stressed appearance. This wood is often used to create a stunning wood veneer. The more unusual the pattern, the more interesting the furniture.
The pieces they create are unique and one-of-a-kind and can become that treasured, conversational piece that everyone takes notice to.
