Matteo Cibic designed the Vanilla Noir collection for Scarlet Splendour in 2014-15. The collection over the years comprises of over fifty beautiful pieces of furniture finished in resin inlay work painstakingly handcrafted in India. After this collection received worldwide accolades, Scarlet Splendour decided that this collection should be produced in a more opulent and precious material – brass was the obvious choice.
Marquetry is used in the Vanilla Noir Oro collection as brass is meticulously crafted on wood to create strong graphic patterns. Paradoxically, the patterns remain subtle as well because there is no contrasting colour or material used in the inlay. The result has been an elegant, decadent collection, a fine contemporary take on a tradional craft.
Bijou Oro is an opulent seat with brass inlay. It may be used as a single statement piece or with the stunning Woman in Paris Oro dressing table.
