Even from a distance, you can tell that the pieces that make up the Brazilian Baroque collection were not executed with the same meticulous repetition and precision that 17th and 18th century furniture was. The Campana brothers were greatly inspired by this era and decided to reimagine the decadent style with contemporary artifacts.

Fernando and Humberto Campana assembled a wide variety of trinkets that range from keys and jewelry to animal sculptures and figurines. They have all been finished in a luxurious coat of bronze and fused together to form the supportive legs and the decorative trimmings around the sofa, the armchair and the candlestick. The Brazilian Baroque collection also features light fixtures with these marvelous mishmash lampshades and tables with unique anatomical frames.
