We endeavor to create uniquely Superior pieces unparalleled anywhere in the marble inlay industry.Marble inlay also known as Parchinkari , Pietra dura or Pietre dura is the same art work which has been used on the walls of TAJ MAHAL built by the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan in Agra (India) and also in other Mughal monuments. Semi-precious stones such as Lapis lazuli, Onyx, jasper, carnelian have been combined with marble of various hues to create designs of unsurpassed elegance.
In this art, also known as Pietra Dura inlay, beautiful floral and geometric patterns are created using various semi-precious stones like LAPIS LAZULI (Afghanistan), MALACHITE (South Africa), TURQUOISE (Iran), CORAL (Italy), CORNELIAN (India), PAUA SHELL (New Zealand) and many other stones. Then these stones are inlaid in Indian marble, black marble, green marble (Baroda green) etc. We have carried forward this magnificent Art through our family artisans and have set high standards. We make designs from the Taj Mahal as well as create our own designs and make designs according to order.
We are known for quality and designs in Agra. In the past we have replicated many designs from the Taj Mahal for our customers. This art has survived in Agra because of Taj Mahal. We use inlay work in making beautiful white marble inlay table tops.
These marble inlay table tops are used as dining table, coffee table, side table. Other color of marble we use for making inlay table tops is pink, black, green and yellow. Marble inlay table tops come in different shapes--rectangular, octagonal, square and oval.The material used for white table tops is mainly Indian white makrana marble of which Taj Mahal is made. For Black table tops we use black Cuddapa, for green- Baroda green and for yellow we use Jaisalmer stone. Makrana marble also comes in pink color. We have made many Pietra dura Italian design table tops in black marble in the past which can be seen in our black table tops section.
Inlay work on delicate precious stone began in the workshops of Florence in Italy around the end of the 16th century. This was known as PIETRA DURA. (Pietra= Stone, Dura= Hard) The Italians had created a classic artistic form and held a monopoly over it. From 1630 onward Pietra dura appeared on movable, small objects as decorative panels, with bird and flower motifs, suitable for cabinet fronts and table tops.Some of these soon reached the Mughals in the form of presents. Of all the Mughal Emperors, Shah Jahan was the greatest patron of architecture in India. It is in his buildings that one feels most compelled to make the connection between Mughal art and Pietra dura. The Taj Mahal, the cenotaphs of the Emperor and his wife, the main floor and the surrounding marble railings bear very close resemblances to the Pietra dura form.
