We started making the 3D models very carefully. Provided with a great amount of imagery we carved each piece similar to what the craftsmen did with the real ones. For this scene, we produced three different pieces of furniture - a table, a chair, and a chandelier. Each piece had its own distinct features, but probably the most challenging one was the chair's glass medalion. We were considering different options for building its model.
Meanwhile, the corona situation in Italy got really serious and having a real sample of the piece was not an option. Scanning or photogrammetry was rendered impossible. We decided to sculpt it in 3D and spending some serious amount of time proved to be worth it.
