Petrified Wood Types: How To Choose A Specimen For Your Home
When choosing a specimen for your home, our petrified wood master Ralph says you should be led by one thing only: passion. “When guests visit our showroom I always advise them to find the piece they are passionate about. I say, take your time, look at each specimen and find the one that is just right for you. When you see it, you’ll know.”
Rare petrified wood
The petrified wood that speaks to you will be entirely unique. No two pieces of petrified wood are the same due to each having an individual fusion of tree and mineral formed in a prehistoric age (learn more about how petrified wood is formed - link to “What Is Petrified Wood” page).
Ralph is the only person in the world to excavate and polish such large pieces of petrified wood of such high quality. This is why if you’re looking for a focal point of a room we should be your first point of contact.
All the petrified wood sourced by Ralph is from Arizona, Oregon and Washington in Western USA and is of the finest quality on earth. Only the most exceptional pieces make it to our showroom.
Petrified wood tables and wall mounts
Our large, polished pieces of petrified wood are perfect for coffee tables, dinner tables and side tables. They also make incredible wall mountings, rendered even more spectacular with specialist lighting. They are easy to take care of, with a hard, durable surface which cannot stain or be damaged.
If you wish to showcase your petrified wood piece as a table, Ralph can help with design and execution. Ralph can also advise you on the perfect specimen and base to complement your home’s character.
If you choose to display petrified wood in your home you would be in esteemed company. Ralph’s specimens are currently exhibited in prestigious museums and educational institutions around the world, including the Smithosian in Washington D.C., the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, Guanghuan Liu Museum in China, and Yale University in Connecticut.
Guided by passion
Petrified wood is one of nature’s most extraordinary gifts, a prehistoric geological exhibit prized by collectors and used in furnishings. It becomes a focal point to provoke admiration and discussion.
When considering the petrified wood that will furnish your home, remember Ralph’s advice and let passion guide. When you find the piece that speaks to you, listen. And let a lifetime fascination begin
