A tale of magic lies at the root of the beauty and prestige of burl, the true star of the VERSAILLES collection. This is the story of Ferrara walnut. In the Ferrara region, the walnut trees planted in the rows of vines to hold them up were pollarded, to facilitate the
formation of gibbosity on the trunk and shoots at the roots. These irregularities resulted in the uniqueness of this burl, which is now more and more sought after, making it all the more valuable.
To construct furniture with such charm, so full of wonder, requires an extraordinary passion for beauty and total dedication to quality.
GRILLI has both of these gifts, and thus sees itself as the heir to this transalpine tradition, yet also as the custodian of the centuries-old incomparable Italian tradition of furniture, which has so much more to give to those who understand, appreciate and choose it for themselves.
