Kalamkari Throws

These Kalamkari hand painted cushion covers by artisans from Srikalahasti in Andra Pradesh not only look beautiful but also seem to feel comfy. Srikalahasti is a well know town for its ancient  temples and this traditional form of textile painting which originated here. These are available at Aalamwaar.


Bokja Designs

It is probably the most blogged design of furnitures. By designer duo Hoda Baroudi & Maria Hibri from Beirut, Lebanon.Termed eclectic it is a combination of vintage/traditional fabrics from along the Silk route. One can see lot of Suzanis used here.They sure do make an accent!  I liked the post in decor8 about it. Check them out here.
Available in Dubai in O'de Rose.  Also check the post in my other blog(Paisley)...here.


Wade off the evil with these!

I just happened to see these gorgeous pieces of table top accessories in Swarovski's  table calender yesterday and I was in awe with them!They are by London based designer Sebastian Bergne for Gaia & Gino. The design of these ceramic wonders is obviously the Turkish eye( meant to wade away evil) with black Swarovski crystals forming the core. These crystals give a sparkle to the eye...true beauty! I am sure these can add a luxurious charm to any home( they are pricey.....mind it). Check them out in Boutique1 in Dubai.

      I am sure replicas/copies will follow....Maybe I myself can steel the idea for a project at Cafe Ceramique!;-)
