Brass Love: Tablescapes at home

The vintage Gindi (water jug/spout) used in hindu rituals gives company to my serene sleeping buddha. The gindi is used for daily and ceremonial rituals performed for the reigning deity in temples in kerala. 

A miniature antique brass vilakku and my son's etikopaka wooden god figurines.My little one loves to do his daily pooja to these gods :)

Another etikopaka balaji paired with another antique miniature bronze vilakku. 

An antique Tara paired with antique brass vilakku set.

My mid century modern lamp, dancing ganehsa lamp and a vintage flower vase adorns my side table.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. :)

Vintage Love: Safari Chairs

I have been asked about the rosewood and strap chairs I have at home. They, like all other pieces of lovely furniture, found me on craigslist. My set is made of rosewood and leather. and the seller told me that he picked them from Bombay Store in the late 1970s.

These chairs are very similar to safari chairs designed by Arne Norell.

My set is not the original, but are super comfortable. The backrest has a swing action which makes the chair very ergonomic. Best part is they can be disassembled for storage and transport.
