ARTESANIA MOLERO, masters of the finest cabinetmaking

In a world more and more driven by technology and innovation, there is still who takes pride in keeping alive and preserve the ancient woodworking techniques and craftsmanship tradition. Spain itself has made of its fine craftsmanship, which is the result of its rich cultural heritage, a constant of its history; it has also played an important role in shaping the identity and traditions of the country.

This is so true, that over the centuries attractive woodcraft works have made the fame of important production sites, such as Granada, the capital of the Islamic realm in southern Iberia during the Late Middle Ages. Nowadays, there are only a few workshops left that can master these ancient arts, and one of them is ARTESANIA MOLERO, an artisan family-based company that was founded in 1888.

Now in its fourth generation, which is represented by Jesús Molero Sabador, the company is still faithful to its original, traditional crafts and founding values. Its line of furniture, which includes cabinets, tables, sideboards, headboards, mirrors, chairs, screens etc., is produced using the ancient handcraft techniques, specifically the taracea, the marquetry and the engraving technique with the burin. All the pieces are authentic masterpieces suitable for the most exclusive interiors; their production requires expertise, great skills and a lot of passion…

Introduced into Spain by the Muslims, the taracea work consists of inlaying wood with bones, ivory or different combinations of woods in order to form borders, geometric patterns or straight lines. In the manufacturing of pieces, ARTESANIA MOLERO still follows the traditional working methods and uses fine wood (ebony, rosewood, sycamore, walnut wood) which are inlaid with other precious materials, bones and mother-of-pearl, mainly.

In styles as fine as the Andalusian version of Spanish Renaissance and Baroque, the bargueños are precious antique wooden cabinet with marquetry and inlaid ornaments that has many small drawers, compartments and shelves. They are used in interior decoration where grand style is required or just to complement a classic décor. One of their most iconic pieces is the ALHAMBRA bargueño (cabinet), inspired by the colours and baseboards of the Nasrid palaces.
