The Design
The Silvia Furmanovich collection is constructed from native sustainable Brazilian wood in the rainforests and decorated with intricate hand cut marquetry.The collaboration between Silvia Furmanovich and Asprey is truly one of a kind, bringing Brazilian and British traditional craftmanship together.

The theme of the collection is Giants of the Amazon. The four motifs featured in this collection are the largest of their species living or growing in the Amazon rainforest.
Kapok Tree - the largest variety of Kapok tree can grow up to 4 metres in one year and can reach heights of 50-60 metres making it the largest tree in the rainforest.
Hyacinth Macaw - at 1 metre long, the Hyacinth Macaw is the largest parrot in the world by length.
Giant Waterlily – Victoria Amazonica is the largest of the Nymphaeaceae family of water lilies, with leaves measuring up to 3 metres (10 feet) in diameter.
Blue Morpho Butterfly – with a wingspan of almost 8 inches, Blue Morpho butterflies are some of the largest in the world.

The marquetry details are created using a lengthy process of assembling hand-cut wood veneer created from found materials in the forest. Artisans, source coloured wood that they reclaim, thereby making the process sustainable. A proprietary system of washing and soaking the wood in water and minerals, enhancing its existing colour naturally, allows for a variety of hues that is at once earthy and bold.

Product Care
Please wipe the surface with a very slightly dampened soft cloth to remove dust and never expose to sunlight or any excessive heat or light source as this will damage the marquetry and may cause the wood to warp.
