Coquille d'Oeuf

Coquille d'Oeuf—meaning "crushed eggshell"—is an ancient Vietnamese lacquer technique that uses a combination of eggshell embedded in lacquer. DLV has advanced this technique to create mosaic patterns, and most recently, has introduced transparency into the process.

 

Decorative cast RESIN

Created by in-house artists, DLV crafts faux metallic finishes using pigmented resins, creating a durable and scratch-resistant surface. Its flexibility in application means it can be applied to nearly any surface.

 

FAUX TORTOISE SHELL

Inspired by Art Deco finishes, DLV has developed a faux tortoise shell finish that can be applied as a table top surface, cabinet door and drawer faces, as well as custom screens. Depending on application, choices range from translucent to opaque.
