And discover the beauty of combining exotic hardwoods, hand carving and inlay. To the intent you might discover, or rediscover an excitement and mystery for the romanticism of the Renaissance. Gallivan's Art Furniture are original designs inspired by a love for the Renaissance. The world’s most precious exotic hardwoods were used to create one-of-a-kind fine art, high end furniture in a variety of styles, from the lavishly decorated throne, that appeals to centuries gone by, to the more modern deco portly chest of drawers. As you browse our web site, you will see original fine art sculptured furniture pieces featuring carving, inlay and marquetry. Design and quality are of the utmost importance from the moment the design is conceived in the mind, to the finished product.  We choose the finest quality exotic hardwoods, traveling hundreds of miles to Hand-pick the finest wood possible. Quality wood is chosen for its color, grain, it's cut and its compatibility with the woods surrounding it, and also its character (by character I mean the cosmetic appeal that I want from that piece of wood, or the feeling that it will bring to that piece of furniture to which it is applied). Over 30 different kinds of hardwood are represented by the pieces in this gallery. Many other hardwoods were used in custom furniture pieces created for clients that have not appeared on this gallery. There is a vast variety of hardwoods yet to be discovered in our beautiful ornate complex art furniture. Each piece of fine art furniture is handcrafted using only wood joinery to ensure stability and longevity. Quality craftsmanship has been applied not only to the exterior but also to the interior structure. When you open a drawer, you will experience a finish smooth to the touch and pleasing to the eye.
