Wood

The finish is at the heart of the exclusive Smania furniture. The unique creativity of our artisans is expressed in the grains and contrasting colours of the wood.                      

Woodworking

Linear
The sheet of wood is cut to be entirely used. This is the easiest working and it enhances the natural beauty of the wood.

Quarter sawing
The artisan carefully chooses the sheet of wood and divides it into four equal parts, all with a particular flaming that creates a symmetrical design. By sewing the pieces of wood, wonderful symmetries and geometries are given life, revealing the real character of the piece of furniture.

Crotch figure working
Thanks to the walnut crotch, the refined pieces of furniture created by Smania appear remarkably precious, as works of art. The sheets of wood employed come from the section of the tree in which the same divides in branches, producing designs that recall the traits of a feather. The experienced and creative ebonist knows exactly where to cut the sheets and how to sew them perfectly, creating a symmetrical and harmonious pattern.
