A wide selection of intarsia wood patterns on the Naturtrend webshop!

The INT-212 marquetry motif is a classic and is excellent for use in restoring antique furniture or any inlaid furniture. Intarsia wood patterns are well suited for veneering because they are 0.6 mm thick, the same as the thickness of the most commonly used veneers, so they can be inserted into the veneer without any difficulty. The treatment of marquetry is no different from the treatment of veneer, care must be taken that they are more vulnerable due to their small width. If you are interested in the renovation of an inlaid cabinet, inlaid table and other furniture, the intarsia wood patterns we sell is an excellent decision for your plans. The prefabricated marquetry in our range help with restoring antique furniture and facilitate the process of furniture renovation.

What is marquetry?

The word marquetry in Arabic means insertion. It is a decoration of various wooden surfaces, which is achieved with wooden insert elements and veneers in such a way that the developed surface is in one place.
This branch of art dates back thousands of years. This form of decoration has already been used in Egypt, as evidenced by the i. e. Between 2012 and 1792, the marquetry technique from the 12th dynasty, a cedar coffin, dominated. But intarsia wood patterns were also known in India, Persia, Byzantium, Greece, and Rome. Decorative wood strip with amber, ivory and ebony from antiquity has also survived in Japan. Outstandingly beautiful inlays were born in the Italian Renaissance, where they were primarily decorated with temples richly using inlaid patterns. This Italian style spread throughout Europe, with objects in this age from this age surviving in all countries. The French Rococo also favoured the use of inlaid decorations.

Restoring antique furniture, or making furniture at home DIY, requires a lot of attention from the creator and a love of the material, in this case, the marquetry raw material, wood. Installing prefabricated intarsia wood patterns are relatively simple but time-consuming, so it requires a lot of patience. The finished work will certainly compensate for the time and cost spent, especially since the price of the marquetry we offer is extremely affordable.
