This hand-carved antique corner chair with mother-of-pearl inlays is an endangered species. It's not just that it's rare to find an antique of this condition in the wild - this chair is made of rosewood, a tropical wood that was protected globally and prohibited from international trade in 2013. There are 300 species of rosewood trees and they grow in tropical rainforests from Brazil to Malaysia. Rosewood is named for its floral, perfumey scent, a fragrance that can persist in rosewood pieces for years. There is something both solemn and captivating about sitting in this chair, a piece that for good reason could not be recreated in the world today. Its beauty feels rare and precious.
