Auden + Avery: Bone Inlay Furniture
While we adore our rattan furniture pieces and décor we have an exciting NEW material in our warehouse… bone inlay! You may have seen a few of these pieces here and there but we are thrilled to offer a larger line of them just in time for the holiday season.
Bone inlay furniture is a type of decorative furniture that features intricate and ornate designs created using small pieces of bone, often from camel or cow bones, set into a wooden frame. The bones are carefully shaped and inlaid into a wooden frame or surface to create intricate patterns and designs. This traditional craftsmanship is known for its exquisite and timeless beauty. Since the days of ancient Egypt, craftsmen have been using inlaid bone to decorate furniture surfaces, and for good reason: it embodies a natural sheen that adds instant luxury to any space.
Creating bone inlay furniture is a highly skilled and labor-intensive craft. Artisans carefully cut, shape, and affix the bone pieces into the desired design. This process requires precision and patience. Our Auden + Avery bone inlay furniture is renowned for its intricate patterns and designs. Common motifs include geometric patterns, florals, arabesques, and other intricate detailing. The contrast between the bone and the wood creates a stunning visual effect.
Bone inlay furniture is often used for accent pieces, such as cabinets, chests, side tables, and mirrors. It can be incorporated into various design styles, from traditional to contemporary, and is particularly popular in bohemian, eclectic, and Indian-inspired interiors. Bone inlay furniture requires special care to maintain its beauty. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, or high humidity, as these conditions can damage the bone and cause the adhesive to weaken. All of our bone inlay pieces are indoor use only and can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Our bone inlay pieces are well-made & durable but it is also delicate. Care should be taken to prevent excessive weight or pressure on the inlaid bone surfaces to avoid damage.
Bone inlay furniture is prized for its exquisite craftsmanship and unique aesthetic. It adds a touch of luxury and artistry to any space and can serve as a focal point in interior design. Due to the craftsmanship involved, it can be more expensive than mass-produced furniture. Auden + Avery aims to bring you quality bone inlay pieces at an affordable consumer price. Whether as a statement piece or as part of a larger design scheme, bone inlay furniture is a beautiful and enduring choice.
