Any kind of furniture can be decorated by using marquetry. The intarsia pattern gives not only the furniture but also the whole room a unique character. Although every style has its own inlaid motifs, you don't have to stick to a specific style, it's all about the atmosphere created by the decoration. These creative wood materials are natural materials, therefore create a natural effect, which is an important requirement in interior design today. These are not large-scale industrial products that come out of the hands of the woodworker or even the hobbyist, but unique, handcrafted creations, and it could be said that this is the purpose of intarsia making.
Prefabricated marquetry supplies are good for veneering. The most common use is for inlay framing of veneered surfaces. As 0.6 mm thick veneer is the most common in Europe, this is the most suitable width to produce, so that the veneer can be fitted without difficulty. The treatment of veneer strips is no different from the treatment of veneer. It is important to bear in mind that the small width makes the woodwork more fragile.
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.
