    Parchment

    This rare material, thin and transparent from goatskin or calfskin, parchment is charismatic in its natural state: soft, light and delicate. White or off-white, it reflects purity and warmth. Coming from far away, parchment transports us to oriental lands with their history of conquest and exploration. The cabinet maker chooses to work this precious and luxurious material to cover wood.

    History

    Asia Minor - II before JC. Semi-tanned skin, parchment is a writing surface.

    France 1930 - Art Deco period. Parchment is a flagship material with shagreen, emphasised thanks to the decorator Jean Michel Franck.
