Coffee Tray Table Inlaid with Wood Arabesque Design
This wood coffee tray table is decorated using a traditional technique, in which paper-thin strips of "ebony wood" are inlaid onto the reddish brown surface to form arabesque designs, adapted from the inlaying technique of Goryo celadon porcelain. The tray then underwent a process of repeated lacquering and drying. The houseware coated with natural lacquer has long been used in East Asia for its glossy beauty as well as its practicality for being strong, watertight and antibacterial. The elaborately inlaid black arabesque design creates perfect harmony with the elegant luster of the reddish brown background.
