But they are a fickle fix, at best, and usually irreversible. In contrast, traditional finishes are thinner and slower to dry, but they penetrate the wood to become part of the piece—transforming it rather than simply coating it—and the act of hand application polishes the wood during the finishing process. Multiple thin coats allow adjustments, combinations, the addition of colors, and evolving effects that age into the rich look of true artisan furniture. Inevitably, every finish wears off. But while the modern mass-produced versions crack, peel, and become cloudy, and then have to be completely removed, old-world finishes tend to fade more gently and encourage your older self, your children, or your children’s children to buff and sand them down or to reapply oil, wax, or lacquer to reinvigorate the piece for another generation.

Mother-of-Pearl Mother-of-pearl has been used to decorate precious furniture since antiquity, often inlaid into wood. Although regulated to avoid overfishing, the material can still be purchased to replace missing pieces. WHAT IT IS: The shell lining of pearl oysters, freshwater pearl mussels, and, to a lesser extent, abalone. WHERE YOU’LL FIND IT: Nowadays, you find mother-of-pearl mainly on Anglo-Indian pieces and what is called Syrian furniture (but which is actually made all over the southern Mediterranean shores).

WHERE IT’S FROM: Italy was the birthplace of the Renaissance, but other countries initiated their own designs and spread them across Europe. Furniture styles in different countries evolved in parallel. WHAT YOU’LL FIND: Sophisticated ornamentation including floral motifs, Roman and Greek patterns, and architectural details. THE SPACE: While medieval castles were basically fortified military compounds, and thus dark and closed in, Renaissance versions were luxurious residences of a nobility who wanted to enjoy space, light, and volume.
