America Black Walnut is joining the roster of wood selections available to customers of Gat Creek. The Berkeley Springs, West Virginia manufacturer is adding this premium choice across its product line to meet consumer interest in the organic, complex grain and color-rich nature of the wood.
“There is nothing fake about walnut,” says Gat Creek CEO Gat Caperton. “It has a natural tone that is deep and rich without being red. It’s also one of the slowest growing trees in America; which makes the wood particularly stable and eloquent.”
With a made-to-order furniture workshop in the heart of the Appalachian Forest, Gat Creek is uniquely positioned to offer solid-wood furniture in walnut as an option alongside cherry, ash, and maple plus painted finishes. The custom shop approach to materials and finish, now expanded to include Walnut Natural and Walnut Mocha selections, provides an ever-widening aesthetic range in the Gat Creek product line.
“Our approach to manufacturing is efficient for our retail and design partners and their customers,” says Caperton. “Instead of adding new vendors and inventory risk to expand their offering, our distributors can shape different looks for their customers from our broad assortment of styles, materials, finishes and hardware. It is simpler, more sustainable, and reliably ships in five weeks.”
