Each elegant piece of furniture has been overlain with a nickel alloy, which, depending on the design, is either polished to a high sheen or embossed with intricate geometric or floral patterns.

How is Indian White Metal Furniture embossed?All of our white metal Indian furniture has been hand crafted to the highest standards of both woodworking and metalworking to produce an exquisitely beautiful and long-lasting finish that will endure for generations. Our artisan craftsmen follow ancient traditions of polished and embossed furniture plating techniques that have been perfected over hundreds of years, resulting in decorative art that delivers the full impact of India’s overwhelming sense of beauty, integrated in solidly made hard wood furniture built to last. Fashions may come and go, while furniture made for the moment is outshone a thousandfold by the stunning aesthetics of the finely crafted Indian white metal furniture, timeless with oriental allure.The embossed metal is nickel, chosen for its beautiful sheen and its overall resilience to weathering, one can polish up to a high sheen or soften to a dull golden hue, the white metal is worked with hand tools and indented in intricate, ornate patterns by artisans who then lay this over sheesham wood or mango wood for a piece of Indian white metal furniture fashioned to last through the ages. A "grain like" appearance is often visible as a background note to the mirror effect.
The stunning originals made with these embossing techniques can be seen in the magnificent palaces of Rajasthan. Many of our highly skilled artisan woodworkers are so famous for their abilities that they are frequently commissioned by royalty for their beautiful designs. By bringing home one of these gorgeous pieces, you’re ensuring that this ancient Indian tradition continues to flourish, generation after generation.

When I originally started to look for some Indian inspired furniture for our house, I was halfway over to Lahore before I found the koh-i-noor of a company that is Iris Furnishing. The fact that this is a UK based company which ships in from India had me enraptured, and then when visiting their site I almost exploded with wide eyed happiness. The White Metal Embossed Sideboard we purchased is magically constructed, a frequent point of discussion for any guests and is a beautiful enhancement to all rooms. The service we received from the chaps who ran the company was top class, and I only wished I was at home when they delivered, to thank them personally. Do yourself a favour and buy something from Iris, it would turn your house into a Mahal.

I've had an impresive experience with Iris Furnishing. Just today I received my big custom order, A very large dresser and two large night tables. They are white with mother pearl and I am so happy and thankful, they are very attractive and unique pieces.Iris Furnishing shipped my order from their store to Madrid, Spain where I reside. So I didnt have to pay import taxes, a big bonus!. I love the hand made inlay pieces. I am actually thinking what else could I order...Thanks Iris Furniture you provide wonderful handcraft products and a great service. :-)
