Syria and its people are known for many things, but chief among those perhaps is their culture's long history of art and craftsmanship, particularly with regard to wood furniture and cabinetry. Syrian carpenters, joiners, and cabinetmakers have a rich tradition of making ornate and intricately carved pieces of furniture, cabinets, decorative boxes and doors.
