Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of,” where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about “Lacquer” and we’ve got loads of items covered in it.

Lacquer — the shiny candy-colored coating on tables and chairs is taking homes by storm. As the layered gloss dries and hardens, it provides a shiny protective sealant for lamps, furniture and accessories in a rainbow of colors. First used in Asia and then found in Europe in the 17th century, lacquer is showing up in all sorts of designs around the world.
