    Figured Walnut and Burr Walnut (often referred to as Burl Walnut) were considered as the most attractive varieties of Walnut. Burr Walnut veneer was taken from the specific part of the tree where ‘growths' sprouting smaller branches and/ or roots would occur. As these ‘growth' areas were limited in both occurrence and size, larger veneers were hard to source and often on bigger furniture (tables, desks, bureaus, cabinets etc), these veneers would have to be carefully joined by matching up the pieces or blending them together.

    It is aneclecticstyle that combines traditionalcraftmotifswithMachine Ageimagery and materials. The style is often characterized by rich colours, boldgeometricshapes, and lavish ornamentation.
    Deco emerged from theInterwar periodwhen rapid industrialization was transforming culture. One of its major attributes is an embrace of technology. This distinguishes Deco from theorganicmotifsfavored by its predecessorArt Nouveau.
    HistorianBevis Hillierdefined Art Deco as "an assertively modern style...[that] ran to symmetry rather than asymmetry, and to the rectilinear rather than the curvilinear; it responded to the demands of the machine and of new material...[and] the requirements of mass production".
    During its heyday Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress. Ref: VJGUEDF4U
