Coquillage

The practice of decorating furniture with shells goes back to the Rococo period of 18th- century France when the shell motif was popular as a carved decoration.

In the modern day, the term has come to refer to furniture literally encrusted with shells in decorative patterns. Alabama-based J. Marshall Sims created the fantastical pieces that decorate the Idea House.
