Modern Marquetry Furniture For Contemporary Interiors

2022•08•23

Marquetry is an ancient art that is still beloved. Discover what marquetry is and modern marquetry furniture for contemporary interiors.

What Is Marquetry?

Marquetry is a traditional woodworking technique that creates beautiful patterns and designs using thin veneers or layers of wood. Nevertheless, marquetry can be the assembly of veneers of metal, concrete or stone, such as marble. Dating far back to the 16th century, this arts & crafts process creates objects and patterns on unexpected surfaces out of the stylish merge of different types of wood, each with unique cuts.

Modern marquetry furniture looks like embroidery on a serviette or a folk cut-out. It is impressive for its careful craftsmanship and beautiful patterns. The art of marquetry returns to favor with Louis XVI and decorations from beautiful palaces and halls.

Now this noble technique is returning with a modern and bold interpretation. Many furniture designers look with interest at marquetry and try to create modern furniture crafted in the spirit of this old and forgotten technique.

Types Of Wood Used In Marquetry

The most common types of wood used in marquetry are woods with straight grain, good resistance to expansion, contraction and warping. Wood for marquetry work is wood resistant to splitting and chipping when cutting. Therefore, maple, oak, mahogany, walnut, ash, wenge and merbau are the best types of wood marquetry work.

Marquetry Woodwork Technique

Marquetry woodwork implies the cutting, fitting and gluing wood veneers to arrange an exquisite pattern.
The craftsperson identifies the shapes that will bring together the modern woodwork composition and the types of wood that will be used to create a visually appealing pattern.

After cutting different pieces out of different types of wood, the artisans glue the dozens of veneers together, sand them to create a uniform relief and finish the marquetry work with a glazed coat that protects the handcrafted composition.
