Varnam, India

Right after blogging that the Indian festive season is about to start, I was overwhelmed by nostalgia for all it's gaiety and colors. I popped over to Varnam on Shopo. I have always liked how the folks at Varnam take traditional shapes and give them a contemporary identity. Like traditional lacquer-ware (I am most familiar with lacquer ware toys for children) reinterpreted to make lamp bases, storage boxes, door knobs and drawer pulls...

(Red and green are very popular colors in the Indian culture and they also will work well in a Western setting. I know it's July but think Christmas!)

Interested? Visit Varnam here.
