A wide selection of intarsia wood patterns at Naturtrend webshop!
The INT-212 marquetry motif is a classic and is excellent for use if you plan to refurbish furniture. Intarsia wood patterns are well suited for veneering because they are 0.6 mm thick, which is common in Europe, so they can be inserted into the veneer without any difficulty. The wood inlay is treated in the same way as veneer, but is considerably more fragile due to its very delicate nature. Naturtrend webshop offers a wide range of wood inlay patterns and marquetry supplies, in a variety of colours.
What is marquetry?
The word marquetry means insertion in Arabic. This is the decoration of various wooden surfaces, created by means of wooden inlays, veneers, in which the finished surface is in one plane.
This art form dates back thousands of years. This form of decoration was used as early as in Egypt, as it is seen from the inlay technique on a cedar coffin, dating from the 12th Dynasty, 2012-1792 BC. But intarsia supplies were also known in India, Persia, Byzantium, Greece and Rome. Wood marquetry inlaid with amber, ivory and ebony from antiquity has also been preserved in Japan. The Italian Renaissance was a period of outstanding inlaid woodwork, especially in churches, where rich inlaid designs were used to decorate churches. This Italian style spread throughout Europe, and wooden inlaid objects from this period have been found in every country. The French Rococo period also favoured wood inlay decoration.
Are you interested in refurbishing your antique furniture
Restoring an antique piece of furniture, or making furniture at home, requires a lot of care and the love of the material. In this case, wood, the raw material for inlay. The insertion of a prefabricated wooden frame is relatively simple but time-consuming and therefore requires a lot of patience. The finished work will certainly make up for the time and expense, as the price we offer for inlaid veneer is very reasonable.
