Marquetry Furniture

Marquetry refers to the practice of applying veneers of various materials to a piece of furniture to produce a decorative pattern or a figurative design. The technique is most often used to create delicate arrangements of differently coloured woods, whether in the form of floral bouquets or neoclassical motifs.

Marquetry as a decorative technique has a rich heritage, from the Renaissance, through the Baroque (especially with ébénistes such as André Charles Boulle), and into the Neoclassical. Marquetry furniture is prized today for its visual richness—a marquetry panel can be as engaging as a painted picture—and its evident technical and artisanal excellence, attributes evident below in Mayfair Gallery's especially fine selection of antique marquetry pieces.
