André-Charles Boulle (11 November 1642 – 28 February 1732) was the French cabinet maker who is generally considered to be the pre-eminent artist in the field of marquetry, even "the most remarkable of all French cabinet makers." His fame in marquetry led to his name being given to the fashion he perfected of inlaying brass and tortoiseshell, known as Boulle.
