The buffet style Napoléon III in marquetry boulle
Formerly the Boulle marquetry is characterized by a tortoiseshell veneer combined with metal, usually brass and brass. It is a technique that appeared around the 16th century, but it was André-Charles Boulle (1642 - 1732) who undoubtedly mastered the technique of marquetry, and brought it to the pinnacle of its finesse and artistic creativity. Our boulle furniture is made in the same way as antique furniture, but since the turtle is a protected species, it was out of the question to use this element, which is why we asked our manufacturer to replace it in a synthetic way Which is also beautiful and is used today by all cabinetmakers.
Your Empire buffet can be completed with a collection of stylish furniture from our furniture store.
