Lounge Chair - Star Burst of Mother of Pearl Shell

Description

A beautiful lounge chair where the backrest is made of Tahitian (black) Mother of Pearl Shell marquetry. These once discarded shells have been beautifully transmuted by skilled artisans. The process of marquetry involves carefully cutting this exotic material, that can be very delicate, into small rectangular strips where the size and shape has to be identical. And then it gets in-laid one by one, to create this star-burst pattern where the colour of the star starts from natural beige colour and gradates to black.
