Reviving tradition, embracing art:

The legacy of André-Charles Boulle

This is where the Boulle story starts: at Versailles, the royal court of ‘Sun’ king Louis XIV, a true patron of the arts, who supported the finest craftsmen of the day, encouraging them to push their skills to the limit, to set new standards and to create new value.

André-Charles Boulle “Premier ébeniste du Roi”, crafted marquetry ― with nature as his inspiration ― of extreme refinement. Unique masterpieces that can be recognized by the mastery in the inlay of precious materials into wood or tortoise shell. No artist, before or since, has used these motifs with such an array of astonishing skills, courage and surety. This is why to this day this craft is known as “Boulle Work”.

Reviving this extraordinary art and conserving it for generations to come, is at the heart of Boulle and the exquisite jewellery that is inspired by it.

Striving for excellence in all its complexity made André-Charles Boulle’s marquetry inlay transcend contemporary furniture to become Objets d’Art, unique in their own right. Embracing this vision, every creation carrying the Boulle Signature is made by master craftsmen who are continuously endeavouring to redefine their skills in order to achieve the unique status of Art.
