MORE FROM THE GIFT SHOW: ANKASA HAS NEW UPHOLSTERED AND EMBROIDERED FURNITURE

by Marisa Marcantonio


You know them for their exquisite bedding and intricate embroideries. Also for their killer color palettes straight from the runway. They range from super tropical pinks and citrusy brights to sophisticated chocolate and subdued charcoal. The chic couple behind the brand, Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia, formed Ankasa with a distinct point of view, using fashion for the home as their muse. They now have brought to market an organic furniture line. Reminiscent of Lesage, the renown French embroidery house, I love the delicate handmade embellishment this brings to furniture. Go to Ankasa to see where the pieces are available.


These pieces are so special because they have a personality all their own. The linen fabric in a deep eggplant tone has a distinctly European sensibility.



This deco silhouette is made tropical with the addition of green-hued palm fronds.



A darling piece would make a great bedroom chair.


Embroidery tops this softly styled channel-back settee.


The linen on this chair is the perfect icy pale blue.
