Description

This is a celebratory overview of Indian style and interior influence. Specially commissioned photographs explore the architecture, furniture, wall decorations, textiles and rugs within Indian homes across the social spectrum, providing a rich visual reference of styles.

India has survived a turbulent history, and yet retains a sense of originality and cultural identity that is enriched by the diverse influences that it has absorbed - from the Mughal invasion in the twelfth century AD to the arrival of the British in the eighteenth century.

This is a celebratory overview of Indian style and interior influence, focusing on the north-west area of Rajasthan and Gujrat. Specially commissioned photographs explore the architecture, furniture, wall decorations, textiles and rugs within Indian homes across the social spectrum from forts and palaces to individual tribal groups and revival styles to contemporary Indian homes , the latter showing how this rich artistic heritage has been adapted and updated. Decorative artworks are integrated throughout, providing inspirational design sources drawn from the intricacy of the originals.

Whether you are fascinated by the culture and design of India, or whether you are seeking ideas for translating the Indian influence into a contemporary interior, then this provides a rich visual reference of styles, from traditional to contemporary , presented with integrity and panache.
