Famous for being both indestructible and malleable, its craft dates back to the ancient times. One
particular type of craft that developed in the 11th Century in Venice, at a time when the city saw the first craftsmen’s corporations appear was the goldbeaters’ Scuole. The goldbeater was a famous goldsmith who with a large hammer, “beat” precious metals, turning them into a fine sheets of gold leaves.
He did so by inserting a gold ribbon between two layers of animal skin, and beating it all with energy, precision and expertise, creating gold leaves as thin as a veil.

The application of gold leaf in luxury design
An incredible mark of perfection and attention the minutest of details are the true trademark of handmade craftsmanship - the famous “Made in Italy”. Today, contemporary interior designs provide new applications for the use of gold. Refined and timeless, gold leaves are perfectly suited to modern spaces; they infuse the room with bright-shining light that creates an elegant and unique reflection. Whether to decorate stucco, an old mirror leaning on top of an elegant Haussmann-style mantelpiece, an embellishment layered underneath your bathroom’s resin tiles, or used as a prime material in your kitchen, gold leaves will bring life to your interior, providing delicate, bold and outstanding finishes, perfect for your personality.
At Venice decor we understand that it requires a skilled eye to replicate the subtleties of a good marble finish. The ancient art of Marbling has been around since Roman times, but was refined and defined by the Italian Renaissance masters. This technique gives the impression of heavy and expensive materials in locations where, for practical reasons, they can’t be used. At Venice decor we use techniques handed down through generations, aided by modern technology and materials to create an extremely convincing representation of ancient marble.
