Nothing like wood is capable of evoking domestic warmth. One thinks of the chalets one sees in the mountains, massive and completely made of this material.

Evocative, elegant and at the same time classic is the kitchen walnut, for example.
This is a type of wood characterised by a medium to coarse texture, which is often a homogeneous, warm chocolate colour when left untreated. It is able, with its unmistakable shade, to match perfectly with different tones such as grey or warmer colours. Depending on which type of wood is used, whether American or European, there is or is not the presence of lighter grains, which in turn are capable of conferring special effects: if desired, machining can be used to enhance the grains themselves, making them the protagonists.
