Ochre at Home’s Rajbari Festive Collection
Kolkata-based interior lifestyle studio Ochre at Home (OAH) blends the vintage and the contemporary to create impeccably finished signature pieces
With splendour and luxury as the key words for designs, OAH’s new Rajbari Festive Collection will be right at home in a modern luxe décor. While an exemplary international-quality finish is the hallmark of any OAH offering, this particular collection is characterised by the essence of the vintage royalty of British Raj Calcutta’s zamindar era. The Rajbari collection (raj: regal; bari: home) is crafted with intense lacquer finish wood, subtle veneers, bold beaten metal and inlay with semiprecious stones.
Bari Side Table
Inspired by love for all elements from vintage architecture of the Rajbaris in Bengal, the Bari side table is rendered in solid teak wood with base designed as a group of slender pillars and the top crafted in open-pore, matt-finish burl veneer. This piece can also be used as a pedestal to place a sculpture or a bust, enhancing a contemporary setting.
Dwitya Peg Table
The Dwitya peg table, a part of the new Rajbari Festive Collection, resonates the aesthetics of class with high-gloss vintage splendour. With a form reminiscent of a pillar, the base is accented with hammered brass while the top features high-gloss burgundy lacquered wood with mother of pearl rings with malachite inlay. A remarkable piece that easily qualifies for a contemporary Indian chic style.
The Navami mirror is another presentation from our custom-crafted Rajbari Festive Collection this year. Nav is the new beginning that sets in on the ninth day of the Devi Puja, hence the name given to this uniquely handcrafted mirror frame. Featuring black and white chevron pattern rendered with semiprecious stones in black matt-finish wood, the frame is further accentuated with medallions of beaten brass. Representing a meeting of tradition and modernity, the festive piece epitomises contemporary Indian design.
Bengal’s rich inheritance of classical architectural is echoed in the vintage Navami console. With solid wood pillar-like legs crafted with inlay work and a moulded marble top, the furniture piece embodies timeless appeal. The console can be teamed with Navami mirror for a beautiful composition.
