André-Charles Boulle (11 November 1642 – 28 February 1732) was the French cabinetmaker who is generally considered to be the preeminent artist in the field of fine furniture.
Christened by his contemporaries as "the most skillful artisan in Paris," André-Charles Boulle's name is synonymous with the practice of veneering furniture and also specialized in floral marquetry in both stained and naturally colored wood. Because of his craftsmanship and skill, Boulle was awarded the title of master cabinetmaker and sculptor to the King of France, Louis XIV, king of France. In 1672 the king granted him the royal privilege of lodging in the Palais du Louvre and he was commissioned to produce furniture for the royal court and dignitaries.
Using traditional cabinet making techniques and crafting, we have developed the Ambassador Furniture Collection as a tribute to André-Charles Boulle and have blended modern styling with fine materials to produce this masterpiece just as we believe André-Charles Boulle would have made furniture today for the modern workplace.
The Ambassador Furniture Collection is not for anybody. These office settings are for the modern executive or government officialwho has an eye for detail, taste for quality and an appreciation for the centuries of engineering and design which has evolved to create these contemporary masterpieces.
