black and white staircase poetry

Staircases fascinate me to no end. As I have a small home I want to incorporate only its elements. Simple solution is to have a staircase-look cabinet but that box-furniture does not appeal to me!

At the moment I have no clue as to how I am going to bring elements of staircase in overall design without curbing space!

I am searching…..

Meanwhile I am (seating cross legged, my face resting on left hand) looking at the poetry in these two staircases-wide eyed!

'every space is truly unique'

It so happened that an interiors store Yamini asked Indian photographer Pallon Daruwala to do some work for them. Pallon went to a place called Cannanore (South India). The images he came back with made people at Yamini sit back and think. They drew inspiration from his images and created a whole new line of products!

This bag bibi has captured Indian grandeur and royalty onto bags. A riot of Indian colours and sensibilities are portrayed with the use of mediums like wood carving, marble inlay, brass, copper and silver engravings, the use of ‘kinkhabs’, ‘jadau’, ‘kundan’, semi-precious stones with extremely rich embroidery.
