Mariani Affreschi is proud to present the new line of products made in its atelier: “Le Tavole Antiche“ (Antique Boards) (WATCH THE VIDEO).

These works are hand painted by Art Masters on antique wooden boards that have been recovered from old historic buildings and converted into contemporary decorative panels. The result is a blend of history, art and matter. Unique and original items to decorate even the smallest corner of a home with personality and elegance.

The process is performed entirely in Italy by skilled craftsmen. First, we select the finest wood, obtained from the ceilings of old 17th – 18th century farmhouses and buildings. Each board has been worn down and weathered by time, and is almost unusable. But where others see defects, we see the personality of a material that can come alive again through the colours and brushstrokes of an artist. A protective waxing will also offer a pleasant sensory experience.

We have created and catalogued a large collection of subjects that best interpret the roughness and irregularities of old wood, painting decorative, figurative or floral elements to suit the personal tastes of people who love their home and art. We have experimented new colour effects, overlaying pastel colours with decorative elements in gold and bronze leaf. Each work is the result of two processes: the first involves beautifully shaping a fragment of antique wood and the second, consists of enhancing it with a painting that best suits its forms.
