From end tables to picture frames, there are so many unique designs which utilize this beautiful wood.

I recently went down a rabbit hole with respect to this type of wood.

Not sure at first what burl exactly was, here’s what I learned…

For starters, I originally thought the term was “burled” – only to find out what I was searching for is actually burl, for the burls on the trees.

How do burls form?

Trees which have undergone some sort of trauma, like a fungus, illness or infestation, often will form these burl growths.

Technically these tree burls are deformed sections of the tree – in other words, an abnormal growth.

However, for over a century now, artisans, furniture makers and artists all saw the potential in this strange and often very strong wood tree growth.

They sought out these burl patterns for custom pieces due to the visual interest these beautiful patterns gave to the wood.

Looking at all these beautiful pieces today, it’s now easy to see why.

Today we can appreciate the luxe look of this unusual wood formation.

First made popular in the early 1920s, from the looks of things, a full one hundred years later…it seems burl wood, with its unique grain pattern, is having a moment again in home decor.

Especially with the more modern style furniture design we’re seeing with contemporary interiors today.

    Hi Sue!
    Thank you for the lesson on burl wood. I didn’t have a clue but have always loved the wood. My grandmother has a dining table that is made out of it and then there is a high gloss protective coating over it. Absolutely beautiful. I have my eyes set on it!

    I have a gorgeous vintage burl wood master bedroom set in my home in Florida. It was purchased by my mom, and as a child I never appreciated its beauty. Now as an adult, I am in love.
