A Renaissance Timepiece
Tooled leather furniture were predominantly used during the Baroque period of the Italian and Spanish Renaissance. Its carved designs were commonly used on chair seats and backs. It was meant to compliment woodcarvings and nail heads on chair frames. The characterized heaviness indeed provided a sense of great security, which during this period was a common theme. Today, these chairs make great statements for a bohemian chic look or a juxtaposed modern look. Thinking about adding a really cool timepiece in a room, a tooled piece of furniture will really give people something to talk about. In addition, framed gold or silver gilded paintings can add extra antiquity and luxury.
