Default what is a good term for this?

I am trying to gather information on a new project. I am building a wine cabinet, and am trying to remember what the correct term is for using multiple woods on one piece of furniture. In my case, I want to use walnut with a cherry inlay. Any ideas on what this is called. Any help appreciated--Marc

What comes to mind is "accent pieces".

Intarsia?

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

thanx guys, I was thinking of marquetry, but not exactly. I just wanted some pictures of using say a cherry and a maple together. I think it looks really nice to use 2 different woods on a single piece.
