If you never thought you’d be seeing the mid-century style in India, now it is time to think twice.
Now that you’re madly in love with India and its interior designers and architects, it is time to understand why an unexpected pairing actually works and it almost looks like a match made in heaven. Today we are giving you proof that mid-century design and Indian design truly belong together…
Here are some reasons mid-century design belongs in India
Colors are everywhere!
Colors are a big part of the Indian culture and they are represented not only in their great architectural pieces, but also in everyone’s daily lives. In fact, as we have mentioned before, there is huge festival where the main attraction is nothing other than… colors! During Holi Festival, people splatter color onto each other and celebrate life, overall.
And mid-century design falls right into these ideals… With a hugely known color palette by a mid-century god, Frank Lloyd Wright, mid-century design and furniture in general are always filled with bold and strong colors. Some of those include, red, blue, green, and yellow. Four strong colors, with a lot of personality, that perfectly fit the colorful life of Indian design!
Gold plated and brass
Golden features are widely associated with the Indian culture, design, and architecture. Every big palace has golden features that exude a sense of classic luxury. Not only that, but also in fashion! Women’s traditional clothes – sari – are usually composed of rich fabrics paired with luxurious gold accessories.
Much like in India, gold plated details can be seen in various furniture pieces of the style. If you love the bohemian chic side of the mid-century modern style, you know brushed brass and gold plated brass are widely used to create the bases and bodys of various items. We have a particular mid-century sideboard handmade in oak and gold plated brass that would fit India’s design patterns like a glove…
An incredible design legacy
One of the most culturally-packed countries in the world, India is filled with important architectural trade marks, such as Taj Mahal. There is an important architectural legacy that follows Indian design, one of which we can’t disconnect ourselves when talking or thinking about India.
The same happens with mid-century design. Inspired by the great minds of the design scene of 1930, mid-century design came at us with sleek lines and iconic pieces were design that are still being produced and manufactured to this day. Its legacy survived until our days, and today, new brands are inspired by the iconic designs of the 20th century to create pieces that pay homage to those pieces.
