As far back as the 1950s, people began to incorporate blonde finishes into their décor. By finishing their birch or maple furniture with a blonde stain, they were able to enhance the natural depth and shine of the wood, while keeping the lighter color. The result was a brighter, less stuffy look that fit in well with the times. Today people are still seeking the blonde look in their wooden surfaces, even going so far as to desire it in their watch winder boxes. In addition to the airy luminescence of it a blonde veneer finish, these watch winders will keep your timepiece wound and read for ware.
