If a single material can be the essence of art deco-style extravagance, it’s shagreen. What’s the firstaspect that makes it unique?  It uses unusual materials that you have neverdreamd of such as skin of sharks and rays, shagreen that can be polished to the finish of plaster or tinted to showcase its stippled patina of round “denticles”.

The hands of an exceptionally skilled craftsman can turn to clad furniture, from beds to desks. Shagreen rose to prominence as a luxury finish in Europe in the 18th century, but the tactile material’s greatest hits were composed later, by designers of the 20th century: art-deco stars such as Jean-Michel Frank and his aesthetic heir Karl Springer. These are the pieces for which collectors are angling.

Heavily inspired in Portuguese history and culture, the Dom Heritage is a cross between two of Boca do Lobo’s most iconic design pieces, keeping the form of the Dom Manuel cabinet, with the use of the tiles finish found on the Heritage pieces.
