ESSENTIAL FURNISHINGS WITH A TOUCH OF INDIA

When it comes to home furnishings, some elements simply do not change. They are the ‘essentials’ that you cannot do without, irrespective of your style and the type of home you have. The truth is that these are the pieces worth spending money on because, they are the basics that stand the test of time as trends come and go.

You can go beyond the mundane in obtaining these basic pieces.

One of the most interesting trends in interior design today, is that of integrating beautiful Indian pieces. Indian designs are intricate and unique. The country’s rich culture and history is reflected on the luxurious, often hand crafted designs and patterns. Integrating Indian themed furnishings into your home is a sure way of incorporating a style that will never fade away.

The Console Table

This is a versatile piece of furniture that is an important part of your interior. It can be used as a display surface for decorations, as a TV stand or even as a bedroom vanity. It is however, perfect for use in the entryway of your home. A beautifully crafted console table serves as a strong focal point for guests entering your home. This piece of furniture, infused with traditional Indian designs represents the perfect mix of style and function.

Chest Of Drawers

A chest of drawers can serve so many functions. Whether you plan on redecorating or you desire a complete interior makeover, chances are that you will always need a chest of drawers. They are so versatile, they can be placed in your living room, dining room or bedroom, and the surface can be used to hold decorative elements, while the drawers serve as storage. The key is to choose one with a little panache so that it can work anytime you change your décor. Indian craftsmanship in wood work is impeccable. A great way of introducing luxury, style and quality to your interior is opting for a beautifully designed chest of drawers.

The Pouf

Poufs add a playful touch to your interior. Although they look casual, poufs can beautifully fit into your elegant décor. This largely depends on the fabric with which they are covered. The Homestyle team suggests that, when choosing fabrics for your interior, colour and pattern is everything. Indian fabrics are rich in patterns and textures. When used to cover your pouf, your interior assumes a different character.

The Mirror

Mirrors are great for your interior. They serve so many purposes. Mirrors can be used to visually expand a room, making it appear bigger than it really is. They can also be used to add brightness and act as an additional source of lighting to your living space. An interesting trend with the use of mirrors in interior, is using them as a décor element. A mirror with a striking frame can boost the interior of your room. In addition, reflective elements like mirrors are an important feature of Indian design. A way of subtly adding an Indian touch into your interior is by going for a mirror framed with a mosaic of traditional Indian patterns.

When I originally started to look for some Indian inspired furniture for our house, I was halfway over to Lahore before I found the koh-i-noor of a company that is Iris Furnishing. The fact that this is a UK based company which ships in from India had me enraptured, and then when visiting their site I almost exploded with wide eyed happiness. The White Metal Embossed Sideboard we purchased is magically constructed, a frequent point of discussion for any guests and is a beautiful enhancement to all rooms. The service we received from the chaps who ran the company was top class, and I only wished I was at home when they delivered, to thank them personally. Do yourself a favour and buy something from Iris, it would turn your house into a Mahal.

I've had an impresive experience with Iris Furnishing. Just today I received my big custom order, A very large dresser and two large night tables. They are white with mother pearl and I am so happy and thankful, they are very attractive and unique pieces.Iris Furnishing shipped my order from their store to Madrid, Spain where I reside. So I didnt have to pay import taxes, a big bonus!. I love the hand made inlay pieces. I am actually thinking what else could I order...Thanks Iris Furniture you provide wonderful handcraft products and a great service. :-)
