Why We Use Locally Sourced Black Walnut: Sustainable Elegance for Home Illumination

Why We Use Locally Sourced Black Walnut: Sustainable Elegance for Home Illumination

In a world where sustainability is more necessity than trend, it is essential that the ever growing home decor market uses materials that do not come at a detriment to the environment. 

We uphold this principle by ensuring the organic elements of our pieces are made with up-cycled materials. Crafted with passion and precision by skilled craftsmen, each piece by Sunfall Design is a testament to traditional artisanship blending seamlessly with contemporary aesthetics already found in design-minded homes. With these principals in mind, it was an easy choice for us to partner with a local reclaimed lumber yard and begin our line-up by offering Black Walnut.

Black Walnut is one of the most sought after materials for use in furniture and home decor since the mid 20th century. Its rich color makes it attractive in a variety of styles, including rustic, modern, and live edge. The figure of Walnut, its patterns and striations, makes each piece unique while fitting coherently into existing home layouts. Each grain tells a story, each curve sings a song of nature’s magnificence, ensuring that your space is graced with a piece that is as unique as it is beautiful.

Our dedication to using reclaimed materials not only contributes to environmental well-being but also adds an extraordinary charm and historical depth to every lamp. These timeless creations are not just objects of light, but symbols of harmonious coexistence between nature and design. We want our lights to be a welcome addition to your spaces, so building our lamps with low power consuming LEDs with a warm color spectrum was essential. It is both easy on your eyes and on the power grid. 

Enjoy the synthesis of traditional craftsmanship and sustainable innovation through our lamps, each echoing the beauty and resilience of black walnut wood. Whether it is one of our limited 1 of 1 pieces or one of the many lamps we offer online or in store, we encourage you to make it your own by changing the color palette or configuration. 

Thank you for supporting local craftsmen and small businesses everywhere.
