What do you call nuts on a wall? Walnuts. What do you call walnut in a Bentley? Simply divine. Bentley and its special vehicle division, Mulliner, offer a new classic wood veneer for interiors of the Bentayga, Flying Spur, and Mulsanne called open-pore walnut.

The wood is sourced from an extraordinary tree type that combines European Walnut and American Walnut, according to Bentley.

The distinctive trees are rooted mostly in California, and Bentley’s wood specialists visit frequently to guarantee only the best quality walnut veneers are selected.

A handcrafted finish is finalized at Bentley HQ in Crewe, England. This improves the large pore structure to expose the powerful dark coloring of the wood.

Bentley uses specific materials to do so, and the handcrafted process helps ensure customers can feel the wood.

The open-pore walnut veneer is then painted with three ultra-thin layers of lacquer, together amounting to just 0.1mm thick. To put that into perspective, Bentley’s high-gloss lacquer coating is 0.5mm thick and has a glossy, smooth finish. Each layer is applied by hand and sanded between applications, of course.
