AT HOME WITH HIS­TORY

India Today - - HOME -

A good hand­i­craft al­ways has a golden foun­da­tion. This fun­da­men­tal rule finds place in the de­sign book of Delhi- based eth­nic jaunt, Kari­gari. A one- stop shop for carved fur­ni­ture and ac­ces­sories, the 1,500 sq ft out­fit sources ob­jects mainly from Gu­jarat, Ma­ha­rash­tra, Ra­jasthan and Ker­ala. The store ex­cels in restor­ing old and dy­ing art forms. Some of the an­tique re­pro­duc­tion fur­ni­ture avail­able in­cludes hand- painted tables and ar­moires, stools and chairs, din­ing tables, cab­i­nets, mir­rors, chest of draw­ers, con­soles and arches. Most of the fur­ni­ture is tra­di­tional but is ex­tremely func­tional and can eas­ily fit into al­most any home. Bharat Vad­hera, its owner, ex­plains, “Such prod­ucts are quite pop­u­lar with buy­ers nowa­days as they give ex­clu­siv­ity to a space. Be­sides be­ing rough and tough, they are durable and have more shelf life.” Priced be­tween

100 and 1.25 lakh, the vast reser­voir of wooden hand­made fur­ni­ture and hand­i­crafts are made by an in- house team of de­sign­ers.
