Venetian Grotto furniture
Was originally created for the artificial grottos of Royal palace gardens. Traditionally carved in solid wood and either painted or gilded they were also known as fantasy furniture.


Walnut
The Walnut woods are probably the most recognisable and popular of all the exotic woods, having been used in furniture making for many centuries. Walnut veneer was highly priced and the cost would reflect the ‘fanciness’ of the veneer – the more decorative, then the more expensive and desirable.
