Back in July we told you about an amazing trip that we’d taken to the antiques markets of Rajasthan to source pieces for an exciting new collection - Libra Originals.
We are now delighted to be able to tell you a little more about the collection, which will be available to buy from a selection of our retailers this spring.
Featuring a combination of original antiques – such as chests, wardrobes and console tables – as well as re-purposed designs, crafted from antique materials, the collection includes over 90 individual pieces, each with a history of its own.
From ornately carved spice chests, to traditional dowry boxes, Keralan coffee tables, to love seats sourced from a palace in Gujarat, the collection is infused with the rich traditions of the East and perfect for adding an immediate dose of character to any living space.
Ornate wooden platforms – traditionally placed on the back of an elephant – have been transformed into eye-catching coffee tables and doors that graced the entrances of some of India’s grandest houses re-shaped into weighty bookshelves, to create designs which can’t be found elsewhere.
With a huge variety of pieces on offer from small decorative mirrors to regal doorways, it’s easy to find something to suit any type of interior, whatever the size or style. For more inspiration on how to bring this statement look into your own home, just take a look at our latest Pinterest board!
