While this natural wood wall art is made from a salvaged redwood other species are also used. Such as Buckeye Burl, maple burl, and walnut. Although the wood species is a personal preference each are stunning pieces of art. The most common theme is either burl wood or live edge wood or a combination of the two. Also, remember adding splashes of natural wood you invite warmth and stability into your decor. With this be adventurous and think out of the box and forget the thought that all the wood has to be the same spec. This is a boring interior design. Why not add a Buckeye burl over a twisted juniper rustic log fireplace mantel.
