Giving your home a global spin doesn’t necessarily require years of world traveling. In fact, Indonesian-based GuildMaster so thoroughly replicates the look of local artisanal pieces, that many of its furnishings could be mistaken for age-old flea market finds. Head designer Michael Sandel employs roughly 400 craftspeople to make intricately carved cabinetry, exotic table lamps, and elegant wall art. Only quality materials are used in each piece, including solid mahogany, finished with old-world patinas and richly detailed accents and trimmings.
Handcrafted design pieces with global influences make GuildMaster a standout in the home genre. Choose from a variety of accessories that will make you look like you hoofed it through some of the world’s most exotic marketplaces: An ornately-carved antique-finish oval mirror, and a four-drawer “Parma Chest” (with fleur-de-lis patterning detail and hand-carved legs) are both ideal starters.
If you want antiques without waiting a dusty lifetime, GuildMaster can help. Artisans at the Indonesian-based company emulate the painstakingly crafted look of some of the world’s most iconic furnishings. Take the Victorian wing chair or the Butler’s side table. And feast your eyes on the four-drawer Parma chest, with its fleur-de-lis pattern and hand-carved legs.
If you love scouring antique shops, but rarely have the time. . . well, we get it. That's why we put together this collection of globally inspired, hand-crafted designs by GuildMaster. Your friends will assume you found the antique-finished oval mirror and four-drawer “Parma Chest” (with fleur-de-lys patterning detail and hand-carved legs) at the Paris flea.
