Bring in a carved daybedA time-worn divan or daybed can bring back flashes of sunny siestas and chai-scented evenings. Pick one up at an antiques store or settle for a replica if you’re on a budget. The carved daybed in this Mumbai beach house is flanked by little pieces of India. Pan from left to right and you’ll see an intricate pillar console table, marble columns topped with capitals, connected by a carved frieze, and ornate stone sculptures.
Hand-carved solid wood benches and chairs, either custom made or salvaged, are reflective of age-old craftsmanship native to many parts of India, like Rajasthan, Kashmir, West Bengal and parts of southern India. Take a look at this intricately carved sofa by The Raj Company that shows intricate lines and delicate patterns. It fits perfectly well inside this traditional interior featuring an ethnic carpet, wooden sculptures and beautiful cornice work on the ceiling.
A traditional Indian living room setup typically has a long cushioned diwan (day bed) with bolsters on the sides surrounded by several cushions in colourful Indian fabrics. Teamed with beautifully carved stone or wooden furniture, this can be in the form of a low seating with or without a backrest. A diwan is a sturdy piece of furniture and can easily last upto 15 to 20 years. This is often used with an Indian or a Persian carpet.
