Ready for some window shopping and some sighing?
Remember the post on the dying art of hand-painted Bollywood posters here on SHP? Well CB2 is now selling an 'artwork' hand-painted by Bollywood signboard painters.
But, I wouldn't buy that at all. I'd rather get myself this lovely accent table 'inspired by the centuries-old red lacquer wood kneading bowls of the Chettiar in Tamil Nadu at India's southern tip, each is handpainted in an optimistic burst of bright calligraphy squiggles and brushstrokes by Indian signboard painters whose trade has vanished in the age of computer graphics.'
These tables have been made in collaboration with Ayush Kasliwal, a young Indian industrial designer who is keeping the traditional skills of local craftsmen alive with the creation of modern objects.
How about this lovely 3-piece set of lotus candleholders? Should I?
