The beautiful feeling of October sky, the aroma of Shiuli, the nip in the air, the anticipation of festivals and lights.... the sheer joy in the heart tells you that it’s that time of the year again. Hailing from the eastern belt of India, Dusshera celebrations were always deeply sensorial experiences.

Drop Dead Thank you TIHG for having such wonderful Shopping section. Every month, I eagerly wait for the copy with loads of expectations, and team TIHG never disappoints. The Shopping pages are the exciting lot (nevertheless all sections have their own charm). At times its all about antiques, all about the old world charm collectibles, furnitures, gold, silver and lot more. I want to know where the best hanging lights and chandeliers can be sourced from. The upcoming November issue of TIHG is the anniversary issue. Looking forward to explosive and exciting features. I am sure there would be surprises in store for all readers. Also, I don’t see the IT Store page anymore? It is a novel way of presenting the latest ‘Happening’ stores in the Indian and global market. Ritika…

The collection includes four seats of different backrest heights, small for the stool, medium, large or extra-large for the armchair. The Torn Boontje shadowy chair has a modern, functional approach to form. The high backrest, the armrests and the seat end with curved lines give the armchair the appearance of a throne.

behind the design

Chairs and Company is all about... To take inspiration from around the world - design styles, prints, knowledge of craftsmanship and breathe into them a contemporary twist. This is what we do. And this is what makes our pieces unique. Design to me... Is beauty, is geometry. It is what nature is built around, and is second nature to every human being, if we pay attention to our internal barometer. Through our designs... To create, and inspire to create products of memory and affection. I draw inspiration from... Indian Craftsmen. The design era that fascinates me the most... Probably right now, The Postmodern Era, where design no longer has defined rules. What I have always loved about my work... I love Mondays! Chairs and Company collection includes... Furniture, decorative lighting, Object d’art, Crockery, Cutlery (coming soon). We also do turn-key interior design projects. I…
