Interior décor is constantly changing as trends and styles evolve. However, authentic looking ethnic furniture has been popular for a long time, but one of the predicted trends for 2013 shared by many design experts is making it modern.
The metropolitan or boutique hotel style is going to be a big hit in 2013. This involves clean lines and modernity, which is something new ranges of Indian furniture feature to complement this trend.
Beautiful Indian style furniture is a stunning look for the home, but most families require simplistic and practical solutions to complement their busy lifestyles. Casa Bella Furniture specialise in quality furniture and they report that many collections now feature a more modern twist, while retaining their Indian beauty.
Casa Bella have a few tips for ethically sourcing Indian Mango furniture to keep your home stylish in 2013:
Ensure Fair Trade Manufacturing
Indian furniture is renowned as being the best in the world and actually where the history of beautiful wooden furniture all began. Mango, Sheesham and Acacia are all attractive hardwoods indigenous to India and lend themselves to stunning furniture manufacturing.
However, Casa Bella urge customers looking to invest in a unique piece of Indian furniture to ensure it is manufactured through fair trade. All of their furniture is hand-made from natural materials by skilled local craftsmen, working in a family-run factory in Jodphur, Northern India. They are very passionate about their ethical responsibilities and also their environmental duty too.
A spokesperson for Casa Bella, comment: ‘The key issue for solid wooden furniture is the source, and we work with our factories in India to ensure that the raw materials we use is sourced from government managed, renewable plantations or local farms’.
Caring for Real Wood
No two pieces are ever the same, as all natural, solid wood furniture is handcrafted using traditional methods unique to the owner. It is therefore important to look after your purchase to keep it looking its best using the following points:
- Wax: It is recommended that you should wax Indian furniture around twice a year to enhance the natural colour and grain of the wood as well to prevent wood from drying out and cracking. Natural bees wax left for 15 minutes should do the job, then buff off with a clean cloth.
- Avoid heat: Sources of heat like radiators or sunlight should be avoided as they can cause drying, and ultimately warping or cracking of natural wood products.
- Use coasters! Natural wood is susceptible to water damage, so use coasters to avoid marks left by hot drinks, plates or wet glasses.
Following these tips should help you to get the most out of your beautiful Indian Furniture and enable you to make a modern and practical style statement in 2013.
