Wood Inlays in Classic Italian Furniture
Wood inlays are a classic design element of Italian furniture. Inlays are mainly done by hand by expert craftsmen, even today. On table tops, on the anterior surfaces of consoles and in wardrobes, this beautiful artwork adds a touch of elegance and a clear mark of handmade detail.
Inlays are achieved by placing different types of wood (or other materials such as marble or mother-of-pearl) into the wooden surface, composing an intricate palette of colors and a variety of wood textures.
Traditional Furniture Design
The carving and inlay techniques are performed by expert craftsmen who continue a long Italian tradition of artisanry. Once the design has been chosen and the pieces have been laid into the piece, the surface is polished and smoothed and then placed under a heavy press for two days.
Inlays are a unique traditional process that allows intricate detailed designs to be set directly into the furniture. We work closely with our artisans, at times commissioning one-of-a-kind motifs at the request of our clients.Inlays are by nature one-of-a-kind, and even if a common design is used, due to the uniqueness of the wood and the artistic craft of the work, each piece of furniture finished with this process is different from any other. Inlays are a timeless design element, embellishing elegant dining tables or consoles most often.
