Boca do Lobo never ceases to amaze in the world of luxury furniture design, while at the same time, always making sure it pays tribute to its cultural heritage. This time, the furniture brand has once again used the ancient technique of hand-painted tiles, to transform already iconic designs, into timeless pieces of art.
The Boca do Lobo’s Heritage Collection is born as a tribute to the Portuguese history of architecture where the traditional craft of “azulejos” (tiles) is applied. The art of painting tiles is one of the most representative ones from Portugal honouring this amazing and traditional art, proudly passing on history and patrimony. For 2021, the brand created some new pieces to complete this remarkable design family.
Tiles appeared in Portugal under the Moorish people in the XV century. Although there are many people who claimed the word is a derivation of “Azul”, the Portuguese word for “blue”, the word is originally Arabic and comes from az-zulayj, translated as “polished stone”.
Reflecting hundreds of years of tradition, usually portraying scenes from Portuguese history or its fabulous sights, tiles are the star of some iconic pieces from Boca do Lobo.
