Tamil Nadu is a land of varied beauty famous for its numerous Hindu temples with towering gateways that accent the skyline of almost every town in the state. The southern Indian state has hosted humanity and a range of cultures since pre-historic times. As one of the oldest civilizations in the world, it seems only fitting that a historically-relevant hue such as Indigo should be so closely associated with it. Here, generations of families passed down secret techniques and expertise in the cultivation and production of Indigo. Textiles dyed with this mystical plant-based pigment exude a richness that almost transcends description, giving it so much popularity that at times throughout history it was prized as much as gold.
Inspired by this transmutable color, our Indigo collection pays homage to the mystical pigment that spans an ethereal spectrum of hues – from pale to midnight blue – with an array of items showcasing its range throughout the collection. Accents in gold and natural wood finishes add romantic drama to this sophisticated traditional story and provide contrast to the palette. Inspired by nature, botanical patterns are presented in classical elegance across a variety of glass and earthenware vases, embossed enamel aluminum bowls, trays and wall décor. Complementing the natural motif, birds adorn statuaries and ceramic lidded jars, and accents of natural agate stone add richness to the setting. An indigo velvet and acrylic ottoman and a blue linen accent chair with tapered legs anchor the collection.
