The Heritage Nightstand is influenced by the Azulejo, a landmark in Portuguese culture. Originating from the Arabic word zellige, this traditional hand-painted tile that can be found all over the country, from churches to houses and gardens and was often used to tell tales of Portuguese history. Superb for any graceful ambience, this unique nightstand references the importance of history, our ancestors and heritage, with a touch of blue or sepia glamour, for cold or warmer looks.

Hand-painted-tiles have gained a privileged place in architecture throughout the centuries. Portugal has adopted them like no other country has and in order to honour the Portuguese hand-painted tiles, Boca do Lobo created Heritage Sideboard. This piece presents a different number of layers, where each one tells a different story.

The Heritage Cabinet is a magnificent journey through Portuguese legacy. Covered in Azulejos, traditional hand-painted tiles and one of the most representative art forms of Portuguese culture, the architectural cabinet portrays different scenes from the country’s Discoveries era. Centuries of history are gathered in a single final white and blue panel, and each layer is enhanced by vertical mirrors on the lateral surfaces.
