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.
Look closely and it’s possible to identify some Baroque elements in this downright contemporary dining room. As we’ve already pointed out, marquetry and inlay work really came into force during the Baroque era, and here it is used in a very current fashion. The round table — with a lazy Susan — features an inlaid pattern and the sideboard is generally unadorned save for the metallic inlay along the top and bottom.
