It is true that not many people can afford buying a silver inlay furniture because of relatively high price but also because of the high degree of difficulty involved by decorating the interior. Be it furniture or any other decorative items made ​​of silver, they must fit in the general ambience and style of the room, but at the same time, they must be suited to the lifestyle of the homeowner.

Silver inlaid furniture has created practically the ambiance of Victorian era giving the space a regal charm and beauty through its ancient appearance. However, traditional and refined furniture with silver inlay has also found many admirers today, being used both to create a decor “aristocratic” and also a modern contemporary environment.

Silver items fit very well with a classic style. The furniture can be “dressed” all in silver or only have a few decorative elements in this precious metal such as the handles of chests of drawers, the legs of a table or seats, or the frame of a mirror. Tables and chairs are usually fine pieces made ​​from teak wood carved and decorated with intricate silver.

A silvery décor can be based both on large furnishings such as wardrobe, table, chairs, etc or on small simple items such as a coffee table, a vase, silver mirror and pictures frames, etc that highlight the theme of the room.
