The antique Chinese cabinet and stool pictured here are similar to the ones in the New York loft in our main image. They are from Indigo, importers and restorers of genuine antique furniture, decorative art and handicrafts from China, India, Japan and Tibet.
The type of rug in our main image was probably made by the nomads of the Atlas mountains. Normally woven on smalls looms that were transported from region to region, the rugs are relatively small, like the vintage Moroccan rug to the left, which measures 1.98m x 2.90m. These rugs can be identified by their dynamic, geometric, modernist designs. You can find the one pictured and many others at Nazmiyal Collection.
Emily Readett Bayley‘s ‘POSH Salvage’ collection includes reclaimed teak tables, consoles and benches up to 6m long made from old bridges. From stock or made to order. Jane Knapp also makes made-to-measure tables (in oak or cherry), with a distressed finish if required. And Katrina Phillips makes tables to order from reclaimed pine.
Maharani Trading import hand-embroidered clothing, shawls and textiles from the Indian subcontinent, including decorative antique Ikats and Suzanis.
Oka‘s products, including their range of hand-woven rattan baskets, are sourced directly from artisan suppliers. This one with a handle is designed for use on a shelf.
