In my travels abroad I find myself drawn to old furniture layered with color and age. The fact that every piece was created by hand as a functional item while still maintaining its artistry gives it a captivating honesty. The human need to incorporate art and beauty into the most fundamental daily objects is amazing, and this is what I look for when selecting products for our store.
Our India line represents the colonial period in India, influenced by the British, Moghuls, Dutch, Portuguese, and French. The furniture business in colonial India operated in two directions; while the British were shipping spices, precious metals, woods, and silks back to England, the Indian royalty were busy shopping in Europe, thus influencing the design of the furniture and decoratives you see today.
