Italian antique furniture has one of the oldest and richest heritages in the history of European art and design. The very word ‘Italy’ conjures visions of the Renaissance, with its embodiment of classical Greek and Roman architectural forms and motifs. Italian furniture also rouses ideas of the Baroque, with its massiveness and monumentality and its dramatic exuberance and luxurious decadence.
Strikingly beautiful, Italian furniture is often adorned with distinctive materials and decorated with unique techniques, such as maiolica (that lustrous tin-glazed earthenware so evocative of the Mediterranean), pietra dura (hardstone inlaid into wonderful pictorial designs), and scagliola (the inventive material that imitates marbles such as porphyry).
