furntiture design

Mid 19th century chair with inlaid mother of pearl from the Met.

For many years I have been collecting decorative objects painted with black lacquer, flowers, and inlaid with mother of pearl- It was a popular, flash-in-the-pan design fad from the 1850s-1860s. You mainly see daguerreotype and ambrotype cases, coin purses, sewing boxes, lap desks… A tilt-top table has long been on the wish list.

AND NOW I GUESS I HAVE TO ADD A MOTHERFUCKING CHAIR TO THE LIST GOD DAMN IT
