One response to “Designer Terms Defined: Boiserie

  1. My wife and I moved here from Newport, RI. where she worked in one of the many mansions left by the likes of VanderBilt, Morgan and many others of the “Gilded Age.” Her business office was in an 1800’s mansion now part of Salve Regina University and it looked very similar to the Versailles example here.
    Much of the custom framing I did was for the Preservation Society of Newport keeping or replicating period frames and preserving that history.
