Today we are going to talk about one of our favourite materials “Mother of Pearl” (MOP).
One of the most loved by all semi-precious stone, available in wide range of colours and shades. Like these other natural stones, it has irregularities which makes each piece unique and different from the other. It’s a strong & durable material, except for that fact that it can take scratches.


Most of us know about this amazing natural product which can be materialized in several ways in interiors. We use MOP inlays in furniture, flooring, paneling, accessories etc. You can create a lot out of this natural soothing material by just using it in a right way. We interior designers like to explore & work with new distinctive materials and MOP is just one of them we would love to play with.
