Bone Inlay Furniture

by Anchor-Of-My-Eye

How gorgeous is this bone inlay console? This beaut popped up on One Kings Lane the other day and I've been dreaming about it ever since.  My research tells me that the bones are camel bones, and would otherwise be thrown out—so no camels dying just to make these designs.  If the notion of a bone-studded piece of furniture creeps you out, this technique can also be applied using mother-of-pearl.


Graham & Green has some spectacular bone inlay and mother-of-pearl dressers.

And I love this chair, available at Made Goods. It would be amazing as a dining chair.
