"Although the floral design of the inlay itself is typical to the Indian region of Rajasthan, Sang & Serena modernize their items with a focus on quality and functionality—so you can rest assured that this stunner isn't just for show."

"A tray is a curator's best friend. Corralling several items onto a tray instantly gives them a more collected look. I'd choose a tray in a pale color, like gray or white, so that the accessories stand out. And, because I'm obsessed with mother of pearl inlay, I'd opt for one of these beauties."




NOVEMBER 25, 2011

"In particular, we are loving their inlaid trays. The attention to detail on these is amazing! Each tray either has mother of pearl or bone inlay. I’m thinking these would make a great holiday gift to any fashionable hostess on your list! With so many colors to choose from you would be hard pressed to find one that doesn’t match your decor! Do yourself and the loved ones on your list a favor and go check out this website! I promise they won’t disappoint!"

"I first heard of Sang and Serena in one of my many readings ages ago. (Oh, to have had Pinterest back then!) When I saw their pieces for the first time, I was in love. You may remember that, as part of my work on my living room, I talked a bit about console tables and included Sang & Serena's writing table as my favorite and dream table..."

"Hello, beautiful! Sometimes I like to pretend I have lots and lots of money. It's much more fun to daydream that way. If this money were real, Sang and Serena Company would get lots of it. They make the most exquisite bone and mother of pearl inlaid furniture pieces. The bone (from naturally deceased camels), mother of pearl, and wood are all locally sourced in India, where the furniture is made by artisans. It's so beautiful, so get over that whole dead camel thing already..."

"I am still adoring all things Indian when it comes to interior design. Yes, it is everywhere, but I love the mother of pearl inlay, ancient printing techniques and rustic, weathered feel of it all. Since this is the case, I had to share Sang and Serena with you. Sang Won Hwang and Serena Sandra Weaver call their pieces "transmodern", fusing age - old techniques, exotic materials, and eco friendly aims. Furniture inlaid with intricate patterns and floral block printed quilts capture the best handiwork Indian craftsmen have to offer..."




MAY 28, 2011

"The owners of Sang and Serena share many passions of mine; traveling, sustainability, and good design...These pieces are completely handmade and done in an old-world way, yet they are beautiful mixed in with modern day interiors and always make that perfect statement! "

"let me present to you my newest discovery: sang and serena: purveyors of gorgeous bone and mother of pearl furniture, at reasonable prices! and they're based in charlottesville, va....ordering a couple of consoles for bedside tables today and so excited to get them in! "

"I’m really in love with the idea of a handblock quilt for my bed, and though I’m a bit annoyed at myself that I didn’t scoop one up from Good Earth in Delhi, I’m excited see the lovely designs at Nandini and Sang and Serena. I love how the cotton weave balances the pops of color, and love the purple and white of the tribal design (Sang and Serena). They’ve also got an amazing collection of inlaid bone furniture. My eye instantly was attracted to the pop of pink, but I think that a console in creamy white (or paneer!) is lovely. "

"In my dream world, I'd go with this mother of pearl inlaid writing table from Sang and Serena. I love the look of it and its exotic but soft and feminine feel. It would add a lot of personality into our living room..."

"Sang and Serena import these beautiful 100% hand-stitched and hand-blocked quilts from India. There are six designs available and I just adore the pink and green one. And guess what? They ship to Canada! Serena emailed to let me know that the particular designs shown online are limited in edition but they are in the midst of working on new designs and will reflect this on their website in the near future. They also import handmade, inlaid furniture and accessories which you can see here. "

"Dating back to the 17th century, inlay work was a common craft in India and the company of Sang and Serena have recreated a more contemporary and modern palette for their line of handmade one-of-a-kind furniture produced in Rajasthan....I think that the pieces have a very romantic quality to them and make a big impact in a room that would be decorated sparingly, allowing the piece to serve as both furniture and art."

"There’s no avoiding the fall-to-winter (finter?) quick change when days grow shorter, temps drop, and your skin dries out.
Best to take cover under Sang and Serena textiles. The bold, made-to-order blankets are hand-blocked and individually stitched in Gujarat, India. Hypnotic color bursts (amethyst, fuchsia) and intricate patterns stretch across the single-, queen-, and king-size cotton quilts.
Dive beneath the burnt orange and jade Coriander, Quartz’s lilac latticework, or the Tetris-blocked Tribal (all pictured above). Or simply stand back and let the vibrant designs warm up the room...."

They work with a local artist/entrepreneur in India to create the pieces.....the bedding they have is incredible too. Enjoy."





"I have been a fan for a long time but I don't think I have shared the link to Sang and Serena Company on the blog. They offer furniture and textiles and their site is chockful of eye candy - I love the contrast of the beautiful products against the industrial settings..."





"After writing this article on Bone Inlaid Furniture and Decor, I was introduced to a wonderful , eco-friendly company called Sang and Serena. The company embodies three concepts when designing its furniture and textiles: eco-luxe, East-meets-West, and old world-new needs. Every item that they design and import is environmentally sensitive, rich to the eye and to the touch and a fusion of cultures..."

"My new fave and top wish list item is the eco-friendly Sundial bedding by Sang & Serena, which I found thanks to Coco + Kelley. I have always admired Indian bedding, but most prints I’ve seen are too feminine, whereas Sang & Serena’s textile collection is well balanced in terms of masculine & feminine colors. This blue & white Sundial version is perfect for adding texture and pattern to an otherwise monotone room, plus it looks extremely cozy, don’t you think?"
