Indian antiques are unique in that they have strong roots within British Colonialism, but the Indian craftsmen and the local materials give them a distinctly Indian sensibility. As C.G. Sparks says on their website: "The Indian interpretation works so well within the American home because it has the fundamental qualities that we as Americans seek out: individuality, durability, and spirit."
Divine Rug, $312
Old Teak Dresser, $719
