The Venice Palace is the latest and most spectacular cabinet designed and made by Furniture Follies. The design is based on the magnificent 14th and 15th century Gothic Palaces that face onto the Grand Canal in Venice and features elaborate and intricately made tracery panels that are typical of this period.
palaces were built for both business and pleasure, something we are told
not to mix, but the Venetians managed to do it very successfully. The
ground floor was the 'shop' and warehouse for all the exotic goods that
came and went by boat, so access directly onto the canal was ideal and
this explains the rather plain doors and the barred windows. Then on the
upper floors, the 'piano nobile' was the splendid living and
entertaining area where the rich merchants could display their wealth
Our Palace captures perfectly the grandeur and magnificence of these wonderful buildings and is conceived as a display cabinet so you too can show off your fine collections in a unique and beautiful setting. 2 doors open on each of the upper floors and the open tracery panels can be glazed from behind if required for security. Below, 2 spacious drawers provide extra storage.

Each floor has specially made lanterns that illuminate the interior and this gives the Palace an enchanting new dimension at night.
