The company works with a wide range of artisans and employs age-old techniques such as hand-carving, marquetry, and bronze casting to ensure its pieces are reproduced as accurately as possible. It even has its own in-house brass foundry, in which it manufactures the custom pulls, hinges, locks, and keys that adorn its spectacular pieces.
