Asian inspiration is big, big, big in the home market right now - and shows little inclination to leave. But some styles (laquer, garden stools, bamboo, and blanc de chine, to name a few) are more popular than others. Among my favorite eastern imports is inlay. Patterns of mother-of-pearl, shell, ivory, or horn pressed in wood or set in other stones are beautifully luxurious. Here are a few worth owning.

Old and new is pretty too:  I love this cheeky modern bed paired with antique looking inlay stools. Chic!

Or, you can embrace the East for a touch of glamorous boudoir. Greta Garbo may appear any moment.

One of the most beautiful selections of furniture inlay around is from Sang and Serena - their pieces are completely handmade, and they have a variety of colors, but I'm particularly smitten by the pink and mother of pearl. Any takers?
