Kolkata-based Ochre at Home (OAH) is known for their bespoke furniture showcasing radical and forward-looking designs that are rooted in tradition. Ahead of the Durga Puja, they have unveiled the Rajbari Festive Collection (raj: regal; bari: home) that brings an artistic regal sensibility into your homes.
Crafted with intense lacquer finish wood, subtle veneers, bold beaten metal and inlay with semi-precious stones, the collection encapsulates the vintage royalty of British Raj Calcutta’s zamindar era. The meticulously hand-crafted furniture pieces introduce a splendorous appeal in your modern contemporary homes.
Nav is the new beginning that sets in on the ninth day of the Devi Puja, hence the name given to this uniquely handcrafted console. Bengal’s rich inheritance of classical architectural is echoed in the vintage Navami Console. With solid wood pillar-like legs crafted with inlay work and a moulded marble top, this is an ageless piece of furniture. The console can be teamed with Navami Mirror for a beautiful composition.
Featuring black and white chevron pattern rendered with semi-precious stones in black matt-finish wood, the Navami mirror frame is further accentuated with medallions of beaten brass. Representing a meeting of tradition and modernity, the festive piece epitomizes contemporary Indian design.
Bari Side Table
Rendered in solid teak wood with a group of slender pillars as the base, the Bari side table has an octagonal top crafted in open-pore, matt-finish burl veneer. This piece can also be used as a pedestal to place a sculpture or a bust, enhancing a contemporary setting.
Dwitya Peg Table
An interesting combination of materials, the Dwitya Peg Table, resonates the aesthetics of class with high-gloss vintage splendor. With a form reminiscent of a pillar, the base is accented with hammered brass while the top features high-gloss burgundy lacquered wood with mother of pearl rings with malachite inlay. A remarkable piece that easily qualifies as contemporary Indian chic style.
