A5 Eucalyptus Natural Pommele
Where: Australia and New Zealand
Botanical name: Eucalyptus globulus
The term ‘pommele’ originates from the French word for apple (pomme) and is used to describe this veneer’s markings. They look like tiny apples or fruit, scattered across the surface. Depending on natural variations they can also be described as quilted. This painterly patterned finish is particularly evident in this untinted version where darker areas are markedly etched into the warm honey tones of the wood’s background colour.
Eucalyptus trees are native to Australia and New Zealand where they thrive in the hot climate. They are known for the distinctive aroma of their leaves as well as their variegated bark and wood, which often exhibits strikingly sculptural shapes.
