ABOUT MARQUETRY

Alexandra’s designs are canvases for meticulous marquetry detailing, with playing surfaces and boxes showcasing the unique, decorative beauty of this heritage British craft.

What is Marquetry?

Dating back to the 16th century, marquetry is an ancient art form, traditionally used in cabinet-making, that has found a new creative expression at Alexandra Llewellyn. By inlaying a surface with a mosaic of wood veneers—often thousands of miniature pieces—our marquetry artist brings intricate shapes, forms and patterns to life.

I often say that marquetry is like painting with wood. We are painstaking in our selection process, choosing veneers for their colour, texture, tone and grain, and how they complement each other.
