SANG AND SERENA: ARTISAN FURNITURE FROM INDIA

by Marisa Marcantonio


I am still adoring all things Indian when it comes to interior design. Yes, it is everywhere, but I love the mother of pearl inlay, ancient printing techniques and rustic, weathered feel of it all. Since this is the case, I had to share Sang and Serena with you. Sang Won Hwang and Serena Sandra Weaver call their pieces "transmodern", fusing age - old techniques, exotic materials, and eco friendly aims. Furniture inlaid with intricate patterns and floral block printed quilts capture the best handiwork Indian craftsmen have to offer.

The writing desk is one of my favorite pieces. It makes doing paperwork and all those tasks less of a chore and more of a nice experience.

the chest in lotus

A three drawer table makes a nice nightstand or free standing bathroom storage.

Select from these colors with bone or mother of pearl inlay:

Lotus

Ember

Opium

Their block printed quilts come in sweet patterns with a feminine and graphic appeal.

Goddess floral pattern quilt reminds me of the oh so British Liberty prints.
