Portuguese hand painted tiles have a centuries-old legacy, full of history. Which made them obtain a privileged spot in architecture design throughout the years. Seen as a cultural landmark, Portuguese tiles honour the country’s history and, to reflect it, Boca do Lobo has designed Heritage, with each hand painted tile telling a story, sparking a flare in its beholder.
Heritage is an elegant line to compliment the decoration of any interior setting. It is a highly coveted ensemble of hand-painted tiles like those of an expertly curated art collection, that were brought together by master artisans and craftsmen for Boca do Lobo’s Heritage.
Hand-painted-tiles have gained a privileged place in architecture throughout the centuries. Portugal has adopted them like no other country has and in order to honour the Portuguese hand-painted tiles, Boca do Lobo created Heritage Sideboard. This piece presents a different number of layers, where each one tells a different story.
The Heritage Nightstand is influenced by the Azulejo, a landmark in Portuguese culture. Originating from the Arabic word zellige, this traditional hand-painted tile that can be found all over the country, from churches to houses and gardens and was often used to tell tales of the Portuguese history. Superb for any graceful ambience, this unique nightstand references the importance of history, our ancestors and heritage, with a touch of blue or sepia glamour, for cold or warmer looks.
In the interior of this cabinet, one can find one door and four drawers, fully lined with gold leaf.
The Heritage Dining Table, much like its sibling Heritage Sideboard and Cabinet, is a highly sophisticated piece inspired by Portuguese history through the use of traditional hand-painted azulejo tiles. Its noble design features bold lines, with alternating polished brass, bevelled mirror and azulejo strips and a tempered glass top, which reflect your dining room’s finest elements, yet adding a touch of warmth and finesse.
