Our Story

Boulle - Móveis de Fundamento
Have you ever thought about having something unique?

Boulle  adopts lost natural pieces of wood art and finds them new homes, introducing them as one-of-a-kind, sophisticated contemporary furniture pieces while maintaining the highest quality standard, never compromising our respect for the environment.

 

Our lead designer is Mother Nature.  All pieces used are trees and roots that naturally lost their place in the circle of life.  The human participation begins by saving what many would consider dead trees and roots in the woods, rivers and dams of Brazil.  Boulle salvages the wood and continue the circulation by giving the pieces the small touches of life that they need to be desired in new homes.

 

Boulle comes from a longstanding concept company in Brazil founded in 2000 and broadens the innovation of the interior design and furniture market. We are against deforestation and proud to exercise an environmentally friendly philosophy when gathering its pieces.  Today being environmentally conscious and appreciating art is a beneficial and growing trend.  Boulle brings the beauty of nature into homes and businesses while never posing harm to its natural order.

 

Once a dream, Boulle is now a reality. We are proud to introduce our celebration of natural wood with its own identity to the international market! Boulle finds great satisfaction in raising awareness of the importance of eco-friendly furnishings while protecting the environment.

Sustainability

We live in a world that tends to use the Earth’s resources for self-serving purposes, even at the cost of destroying the planet. Sustainable products are being welcomed as the population becomes more conscious of its impact on the planet.

 

Boulle is proud to practice sustainability as all of our products come from forested areas that have been responsibly manage.  Our wood has been uprooted or severed by Mother Nature herself.  A trusted Forest Management Team plans and carefully executes tree harvesting from start to finish never harming or disturbing nature.  Younger trees always replace lifeless trees that are removed and all species are delicately selected ensuring no interruption in the circle of life.

 

We never retouch or remove the natural elements of life such as insect traces or weather reflections that are displayed on the wood pieces.  Santa Madeira’s pieces also possess preserved natural characteristics of wood smell, color and texture.Our pieces remain dignified by presenting the most original and phenomenal designs that Mother Nature has created.

Feedstock

Boulle is a well renowned brazilian company that aims to be sustainable and environmentally friendly. Our team goes above  beyond travelling all over Brazil, we seek feedstock into rivers and dams, trees that have already been burned, among others. We see pieces of art in nature ruled, all of our pieces are unique, our job is to create  furnitures and sculptures giving the best workmanship to every single piece that was orignally created by the nature itself.
