India's time has come!

India is HOT! Yes, and I don't mean the temperature cos we're in the midst of a wet monsoon. But I mean hot in the design and decor industry. Everywhere you look you see India inspired linens, furniture, crafts, textiles. Finally our time has come and it couldn't be better.

Indian decor is diverse, beautiful and versatile, it lends itself well to almost any design style - modern, traditional, eclectic. For the past few days every furniture and home decor site I have visited has at least one item Indian. So I stuck them all in a "to share" folder and that's what I am doing today...sharing those with you.

  Tanjore finials - via

Hundred petal lotus vessels - via

Carved wood coffee table - via
Charpoy coffee table/daybed - via
Mally Skok's India collection - via

Peacock napkin rings - via
Trellis dhurrie rug - via
Jhula inspired wooden hanging bed - via

Aren't they lovely? I just realized they are all in shades of blue and white.....! Enjoy!

Lovely picks, Kamini!
Indian decor is definitely getting hot these days.
I loved the finials and the lotus vessels. I have myself been eyeing the carved wooden table from West elm since a long time. Nice post!
