Posted by Zohi Interiors on 15th Oct 2013

Our obsession with bone & mother of pearl inlay furniture and accessoriesis clear. We love it’s unique and exotic charm and couldn’t resist doing a write up about it as we’ve noticed its popularity with all of you as well.

We directly source our bone & mother of pearl inlay pieces from artisans in the beautiful region of Rajasthan India. Rajasthan is famous for its magnificent temples and palaces as well as its vibrant and colourful culture. Sourcing these pieces directly from magical Rajasthan allows us to provide you with individual pieces that have their own story and speak of a place and its history.

How it's Made:

To create these beautiful pieces of furniture delicately carved pieces of Mother of Pearl shell and honourably sourced bone have been individually inlaid onto a wooden frame in an elaborate floral pattern. Layers of coloured resin are then used to fill around the Mother of Pearl design.

Each piece has been handcrafted in a process that can take weeks, because of this no two pieces are alike making them 100% unique and distinctive.

Decorating with Bone & Mother of Pearl Inlay:

Bone & mother of pearl inlay furniture fits perfectly into Moroccan, bohemian and Indian inspired homes but its diverse appeal also makes it the perfect addition for a French provincial setting. Our advice is to keep the rest of the styling simple and let the Mother of Pearl shine.

Alternatively an eclectic display or bright geometric cushions also team well with the bone & mother of pearl pieces. We’ve included some of our favourite styled images using this trend.
