Indian White Metal Chests of Drawers are Built to LastMade for luxury and quality, with solid joints and thick cut, Indian hardwood, the woodworking is based entirely around the principle of strength and longevity, in a piece of furniture made to last for the generations to come. Often commissioned by the royal palaces of Rajasthan, this tough, enduring quality is characteristic of the furniture our artisans create, as is the care with which surfaces are finished and patterns set to match one another across the drawers and the surround. These subtle, tell tale signs denote the level of expertise invested in each piece of solidly made Indian furniture.
Our artisans in Rajasthan take a fresh approach to every furniture piece they make in a creative process which results in a fine display of Indian art. This is a far cry from manufacturing and every individual piece of furniture is given the attention that a work of art demands. Skilled professionals in their trade, the passion for what they do renews with each new piece and this is where the constant re-enlivening flair for artistry makes its permanent mark on pieces of solid hardwood Indian furniture. The assembly itself is a craft and each piece is fashioned to last and last, withstanding the test of time and endurance and made from finely selected materials. The artistry in this is no less stunning than the highly ornate embossed surface, rich in visual detail and appealingly tactile. The white metal chests of drawers boast superior quality throughout, with care and attention taken to the finishing touches on these, such as the royal blue velvet lining in the drawers demonstrating a certain quality of luxury. The chests of drawers come with matching, discreet metal handles, or if preferred, crystal faceted handles can be fitted, for a complementary touch to the reflective sheen of the metal.
The finish is adaptable and can be polished to a high shine for dazzling beauty, or polished down for a low-sheen chrome effect. Leaving a piece of Indian white metal furniture unpolished results in a mellowing, where the silver softens into a warmer, golden hue, which looks no less beautiful than a high shine finish. And it is good to know that however long you leave it, you should be able to restore your piece to its original high brilliance with ease. Nickel is an enduring alloy and recovers easily from spills, marks and the accumulation of damp, grease or dust, taking on a pleasing appearance with the passage of time that can always be reversed and restored to its original splendour.
Embossing Indian White Metal Chests of Drawers - How Is It Done?Embossing metal is a handicraft that has been honed over the ages in Northern India, where the techniques used today are those that have been used for hundreds of years, in an exquisite form of ornamentation with no end of applications. The surface of the furniture is covered with sheet nickel, which is lain over the fashioned piece, nailed into place and then embossed. Pre-worked patterns are made into tools that can adorn a sheer surface with the most complex artwork. Floral designs are set within geometric shapes, in endless combinations of arrangements and then polished up to a high sheen. Indentations between raised patterning naturally darken over time, lending the appearance of antiquity and accentuating the ornamented surface. This effect can always be over-ruled with the right polishing technique.
Nickel is pliable enough to be highly responsive to intricate and ornate embossing patterns and strong enough to then keep its shape, whilst also being resilient to environmental stresses and atmospheric fluctuations, as well as all kinds of marks, including water marks. Even if left uncared for, it looks beautiful and the visual effect is aesthetically pleasing. It is one of the most versatile materials for furniture and can withstand the generations of use it is likely to get.
