Doorway To Nostalgia

I get nostalgic pretty easily.. sometimes its a rainy evening or a whiff of a perfume, sometimes, something I’ve eaten, or a rarely spoken phrase, sometimes its a song and sometimes a scene from a movie…it could be a mail, a call, a card, a letter.. and then sometimes, its furniture..

Well, with furniture that has never actually happened before, but when I saw this by Haldane Martin, it took me back to days that can only be categorized as, ‘way-back-when’, to my grandfather’s house where furniture like this was all over the place!

Atleast the chair anyway! Y’all know what am talking about?


Not all of his collection got me nostalgic though! Some of these pieces are really contemporary, modern and very, very minimal! And, really pretty cool.


Whether inciting nostalgia, or vibing ‘futuristic’, the furniture sure had a way of transporting you to a different time and place! Definitely worth a dekho.

More Of That Ikat

Look what Madeline Weinrib has done with Ikat. I absolutely love the furniture and the pillows that she has designed!



And how much fun is this Ikat pillow with a pop-spin giving it that unusual print!


On an aside, Ikat is a style of weaving that uses a dyeing process similar to tie-dye before the threads are woven, to create a pattern or design. Ikat means “to tie” or “to bind” in the Malay language.

India, Japan and several South-East Asian countries have cultures with long histories of Ikat production (among other things), and Double Ikats can still be found in India, Guatemala, Japan and the Indonesian islands of Bali and Kalimantan!

In fact, a Double Ikat from Gujrat, used to be exported to Indonesia for the use of the royal families. And if you were to look, the striking similarities between Double Ikats produced in Bali, Indonesia and those in Gujrat are hard to miss.

Oh, and the Double Ikat from Gujrat? Also known as Patola. Ring a bell?

Weaving a small world after all?
