Ideal for a living room or bedroom, where it can be the centre piece for wall furnishings, the inlay mirror is a gracious size; distinctive without dominating. Place the mosaic mirror either where you’d like to create the feel of more light and space, or where you’re going to get the most use from it, depending on whether it’s purpose is more functional or decorative.
How are mosaic mirrors made? Delicately crafted by extremely skilled, experienced, hands, ethically harvested camel bone is cut into exact shapes, placed alternately and filled with a composite material resin, finished to a smooth, even surface laid over Indian rosewood. Indian furniture is known for its resilience to fluctuations in temperature, humidity and for its resistance to the ravages of time, thanks to Indian rosewood, also known as Sheesham wood. This, along with the often used Mango wood, is prized for its ability to craft furniture that is strong, durable and that, once made, will hold its look for posterity.
The decorative art of bone inlay is achieved by master craftsmen who’ve learnt their handicraft from their forefathers and their forefathers before them. Academy trained in the modern techniques for carpentry, they turn out a hybrid woodworking style, which merges tradition with international innovation, to create unique pieces of solidly made, ornamented Indian furniture, fit for the palaces of Rajasthan.
