Furnish with wooden boxes: creative recycling and decoupage

Surely you have heard of decoupage, an increasingly popular hobby that has very ancient and noble origins. The French word "découpage" comes from the French "découper", which can be translated into Italian as "cropping". In Italy it is also known as poor art, a decorative technique introduced by Venetian furniture makers in the 18th century. But the origin of this practice is much older: it is said that it arrived in Europe from China as early as the 1500s, and that between the 1600s and the 1700s it became a real artistic technique much appreciated in France and England.

Today the decoupage is a decorative style that is often combined with creative recycling, a mix of do-it-yourself, bricolage and recovery of objects otherwise destined for recycling. Also for this reason the decorated wooden boxes have become great protagonists of this green practice that combines creativity and environmental protection.

Furnishing with fruit crates is the best fun because there are no limits to the possible uses of these boxes. They can be recycled according to your imagination, and if you're wondering where to find these versatile boxes, well...browse our catalog and you'll find a selection of wooden boxes ready to be used in so many different ways!
