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?

Truly works of art. It would be fascinating to watch the craftsman at work. I'd seriously need some arthritic medication and my bi-focals after doing that for long. Remarkable!

Have a happy & safe 4th of July ~
