By definition, Marquetry is the art of creating decorative designs and pictures by skillfully utilizing the grain, figure and colors of thin veneers and sometimes other materials such as shell or ivory. The technique of marquetry dates back at least to the Classical civilisations, with the use of these techniques evident in works found in the ancient Roman ruins at Pompeii and Herculaneum. After a decline in their use during the Middle Ages, marquetry was revived during the 16th Century in Italy and became exceptionally popular throughout Europe during the Early Modern period. It has flourished in furniture design and interiors ever since.

The production of fine marquetry and parquetry works is a labour intensive process. Traditionally carried out by experienced and highly skilled woodworkers, marquetry works often have wondrous details, the very best of which are highly prized artworks in their own right.

From CULTURE’s workshops, two magnificent stools were created using ancient techniques. Both were born from the hands of the master artisan Vitor Querido and one of them designed by Almiro Amorim.

Autumn has a strong presence in one of the stool’s design. The orange and light brown leaves create a harmonious composition against the black background.

On the other hand, the second stool is a true creative outburst filled with different references and patterns all merged together into an outstanding piece.
