AT HOME WITH HISTORY
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.
