Another hallmark of Baroque era interiors was marquetry of the type that is featured on this stunning round dining table. This era fueled the rise of great furniture designers and cabinet-makers, who were leading artists in the field of inlaying ebony wood with tortoise shell, brass and other metals. You don’t need many pieces of marquetry to make a statement and here, the table tales center stage under the opulent, but slightly modern crystal chandelier. The characteristics of the period are carried through the room with the unadorned wall panels, embellished buffet and damask upholstered chairs.
