These unique pieces tell a story from earlier times, when furniture was hand made and built to last. The furniture from the Belvedere collection invokes the designs of French and Spanish antiques from the nineteenth century and architecture and furniture from the heyday of ancient Greece. All pieces are hand carved from walnut solids, but figured cherry and select Cerejiera mahogany veneers are used on certain pieces. Three finishes are shown, but only on select pieces; Amalfi Finish, a deep, lustrous hand-rubbed patina on walnut solids; Sienna Finish, a combination of a darker hand rubbed black with custom hand stippled silver leaf; and Pompeii Finish which is an all over, hand applied, antiqued silver leaf with subtle texturing. Pieces are trimmed with brass colored hardware. This collection caters to the modern lifestyle with plenty of storage and customizable options, but appeals to traditional design sensibilities.
