Made to Measure Boiserie – Samarreda

Boiserie is a term used for a decoration based on the coverage of the walls with wood panels, variously carved and engraved.

museo di versailles cabinet della regina

The first examples of boiserie were real marquetry, but later they were often painted panels inlaid instead. The boiseries  was very popular in France in the seventeenth and eighteenth century for the interior decoration. In Versailles there are numerous examples of this type of decoration. The panels were often not only to decorate the walls but also doors, partitions and booths.

The term is sometimes used to refer paneling coatings, timber-not necessarily decorated, but enriched with frames

Some design firms have specialized in this type of furniture that require greater precision in the execution of relief and experience in the assembly. “(Source: wikipedia)
Our boiseries are created especially for our customers, designed to fit the space in which they must enter, enhance the environment with the craftsmanship and the materials they are made of.


Proposal in an incredible variety of finishes and different combinations, the paneling is ideal both in the creation of new environments, beautiful and functional, for the redesign and transformation of existing spaces.


Smooth or pantograph, in a classic or modern: the paneling is an extraordinary choice for interior design projects that aim to create sophisticated customized spaces.

As the tailor chooses the fabric with the customer, we select the materials that the client and/or designers have in mind; as the tailor takes measures for the wedding package and makes the model, we carry out the survey of the entire environment to rebuild it in our laboratory. The creation takes shape within our carpentry, where each piece is carefully made and assembled.

The Venice lagoon is dotted with large poles that, in groups of threes, indicate the waterways within which the depth of water is that it can be navigable at low tide.
These are the so-called Briccole.



Periodically, the Briccole are replaced due to wear or breakage. From the recovery of these poles you get an oak wood with unique characteristics, the nature it draws the grain through the shellfish that have left their mark their passage through the water that penetrates into the material and then evaporates. The prolonged contact with water gives a solid color and a unique and distinctive.

The thinkings hands – Samarreda

  le mani pensanti - samarreda

“In English, no distinction is made between art and craft. For this reason, the craftsmanship is art, mastery. The art of the musician, for example, as well as for the craftsman, is the ability to achieve what you set out to achieve it. It is an important issue … that becomes an art both manual and intellect. The recovery of craft, craftsmanship, lies in the return to the people an active role in the face of technology”.
Richard Sennet

castel del monte 2

Sol le witt & Samarreda

The works of Sol le witt often propose modular geometries that identify a rigorous spatiality and transfigure objects.
Klein blue is a colour with absolute dimension and incredible depth. Castel del Monte is a medieval architecture with a rigorous form. In this case, form is nothing other than the expression of a concept or rather of a general idea of ​​the world that for Frederick of Swabia was reconnected to the Pythagorean-esoteric tradition.

At Samarreda we are inspired by the search for a rigorous form in a piece of furniture that matches the “Taste of the object at origin, where it is generated”.
For us, the reference is to objects of art and historical periods which have themes with the things of heaven and earth as part of the simplification and that have originated from ingenious artistic minds.
What we seek is “the incredibly beautiful and essential” to achieve that search for a rigour, one perhaps that our society needs.
