Type of Wood we use
Posted on November 18 2018
Whether we walk on it barefoot, stroke it with our fingertips or enjoy feasting our eyes on its markings – wood is a material like no other. A material that speaks to us through all our senses. It is a part of the outdoor world placed in our homes, connecting us with nature and with the original architecture of densely forested lands. Even when it has been turned from a tree into something else, it still remains a living thing. Its cells absorb moisture and then release it again slowly. Wood thus has a balancing effect on the room environment and improves one's health.
As a living material, wood has another excellent property: With the passage of time it gains even greater character whilst retaining its shape. The sun's rays will produce colour changes that are entirely natural. Small traces are left behind as evidence of the passage of time. The grace of patina. All these things contribute to the visual impact of a room. It really is an incredibly beautiful thing.
1. Sandalwood (Black & Red)
Sandalwood has several species that can be found all over the world, each with its own color. Typically sandalwood has a wonderful and unique smell, often used as scents and as notes in perfume. WoodWatches are made of two types of sandalwood, each owning a unique color and texture.
Maple wood is a popular type of wood that can be found all over the world. We use a sturdy maple wood from North America. The structure is formed by straight-running lines of a light brown shade, with the occasional wave, providing the wood type with a soft character.
3. Zebra wood
Zebra wood is recognizable by the light brown color with a structure of dark brown lines that are clearly visible. The structure represents the print of a zebra, containing straight lines that are frequently alternated with unique turns and slight curving.
Ebony is characterized by a deep dark, and almost black hue, with soft deepdark red tones. Due to the dark color, the visibility of the structure is often difficult. The structure is characterized by lighter, usually straight, strips that are uniformly distributed.
Walnut wood can either be a light or dark brown color. In addition, there are tones of grey and red often visible. The structure is characterized by straight lines that are frequently alternated with curls, rings and corners. Darker strips also occur with regularity.
