As one of the world's great crafters of master furniture art, Matsuoka makes available to interior designers a broad diversity and very special character of materials.
With a standard palette of more than 70 species of rare and decorative woods accompanied by a nearly infinite selection of ornamental media, each element is selected for its special aesthetic potential. The inventory of rare Celebes Ebony, harvested more than 35 years ago, is believed to be the largest and most valuable in the world. Other select species include: cuts of nacreous and lacey sycamore; expressive bird’s eye maple; sumptuous red sandalwood, various rosewoods, walnuts and mahoganies from several continents, African woods, and rare and decorative timbers from around the world. These materials represent a choice that few companies anywhere can rival.
In addition to its spectacular veneers, Matsuoka adorns its designs with accoutrements of lustrous metals, semi precious stones, exotic urushi, hand selected leathers and the finest Italian marbles.The company continually searches for new and innovative media to challenge artists and showcase exceptional mastery.
