The ancient technique that distinguishes inlay furniture from other pieces gives a classic design that will always be cherished and desired. Bone inlay creates an impactful and rich design instantly adding a bit of luxury to your home. Either set in bold or neutral colors, the piece will be an instant conversation starter. While the traditional design of bone inlay is fit for bohemian and elegant styles alike, there is another type of inlay that works more for modern styles.
Brass inlay typically places the gold hex hue in between wood. This results in a more subtle inlay, but still a glamorous one. The minimal luxe effect is just the right amount of glam no matter how pared down your style is. Whether you fall more on the traditional side or ultra modern inlay furniture deserves a place in your home. Shop this edit of 7 gorgeous pieces:
