Shopping In India : Furniture Made in India - 14

Indian furniture is regarded as prized because of its ethnic flavour. Traditional Indian woodcarvers continue to follow the style of their ancestors keeping traditional crafts alive.

Among the regional specialties, nothing can outdo Rajasthan and Gujarati woodcraft. The antique look and intricate craftsmanship have kept the furniture in demand both in India and abroad. Carved and decorated chests, chairs, cradles, low tables and stools are hard to resist. Each object is pleasing, whether inlaid with brass sheet work, painted with dancing figures, or embellished with hunting scenes. From Kishangarh, comes painted furniture of screens, doors caskets and chairs.

The regions of Ramgarh and Shekhawati specialize in ornamental wooden furniture with floral designs that adorn projected niches and balconies of houses. Barmer and Jodhpur produce the finest carved furniture in the state, which includes windows, tables, beds, dining tables and chairs, sofa sets with centre tables, couches, cabinets, dressing tables, screens, bars, trolleys and other items of domestic use.
