Folding star

A folding star is an inlay consisting of triangular and linear elements that is different in colour from the rest of the furniture. The light-dark contrasts ensure that the folding star catches the eye as a design element. Fire shading of the light wood creates a three-dimensional effect.

We find folding stars on antique furniture from almost all epochs.
