Bone inlay furniture that is contemporary, luxurious and striking.
Our homes are our sanctuary, so why not curate a space filled with luxury? We craft beautiful bone inlay furniture that melds traditional tastes with contemporary trends. Bone inlay furniture is made by fixing intricately carved camel bone to a wooden frame to create striking patterns. The ancient egyptians practised this form of craftsmanship and it dates back nearly 3,000 years. Those craftsmen used a form of adornment called intarsia, from which today’s bone inlay furniture is derived. Centuries ago, india was also a home to the noble art of bone inlay. It remains in practice today. Artisans take about a month to create a bone inlay piece, drawing on old techniques that require much skill and practice. The state of rajasthan in india is most well-known for its artistry in bone inlay craftsmanship. Bone inlay is most often applied over a flat surface, such as the top of a coffee table or the sideboard of a bed. Artisans use these inlay techniques to create patterns on many kinds of furniture. Bone inlay chest of drawers, bone inlay bedside tables, and bone inlay mirrors are just a few pieces we offer to create an eclectic look for your space. A patterned contrast of white bone against rich, dark wood can bring a sense of drama to any room. However, if a bohemian look is not to your taste, colour schemes are available that lend themselves to today’s minimalist styles. Rather than dark wood, sometimes light or white is used to create a less dramatic, but no less beautiful effect against the creamy tones of the camel bone.
Black, white, or colour – bone inlay furniture is all about catching the eye.
