Additional Information

Style: Neoclassical (1765-1790)

This historical period includes a properly definable first phase of the Louis XVI style. Only later, with the maturation of archaeological fashions, a new vision of the civilization of furniture is formulated and codified, now fully ascribable to the Neoclassical style. In fact, both trends coexisted in unison until the last years of the eighteenth century. In the field of cabinet making, the Direttorio, Retour d'Egypte, Consolare and Impero styles also fall within the neoclassical era.

Main essence:


Hard, light wood used for inlays. It grows mainly in Austria, but it is widespread throughout the northern hemisphere, from Japan to North America, passing through China and Europe. It is one of the lightest woods ever, tending to white, it is similar to lime or birch wood. The briar is used in the production of ancient secretaires .

Various Essences


Walnut wood comes from the plant whose botanical name is juglans regia , probably originally from the East but very common in Europe. Light or dark brown in color, it is a hard wood with a beautiful grain, widely used in antique furniture. It was the main essence in Italy throughout the Renaissance and later had a good diffusion in Europe, especially in England, until the advent of mahogany. It was used for solid wood furniture and sometimes carvings and inlays, its only big limitation is that it suffers a lot from woodworm. In France it was widely used more than anything else in the provinces. In the second half of the eighteenth century its use decreased significantly because mahogany and other exotic woods were preferred.

Pine tree

The term pine wood indicates the essence from various species of conifers, especially Scots pine, maritime pine and pinea pine. Used since ancient times for the most common furniture, with the advent of the veneer technique, in the 1600s, it was widely used in the construction of the structure of even luxury furniture, which were then covered, decorated (in Venice) or gilded ( in England). It has a color that varies from white to yellow with reddish hues and can be both very soft and very hard.


Extracted from the plant called olea europaea which lives in all the Mediterranean lands, it is a hard and compact wood. It has a characteristic light color, greenish yellow, with particular dark veins. It is widely used in cabinet making both as a solid wood for entire furniture, and for inlays, veneers and decorations. As it is very hard, it is also suitable for round work and for the manufacture of small objects.
