A popular trend these days is the fusion of traditional and contemporary decor, as it amalgamates the best of both worlds and is inspirational. In fact, a lot of people prefer minimalistic and sleek designs with regional influences. As a result, furniture clubbed with artistic elements such as hand paint and inlay work is popular. Such pieces reflect a touch of ‘Indian-ness’ with contemporary luxe.
Alankaram, in Sanskrit, means ‘the art of decoration or ornamentation’. Our studio customises indigenous, minimalistic designs with precise joinery details, combining the strength of solid wood with a modern range of upholstery. Incorporating traditional design elements into our products by authenticating provincial roots with global design influences, Alankaram aims to redefine luxury for modern lifestyles.
The ongoing “fusion” trend has taken the world by storm. There are various ways to incorporate the fusion trend into your home. For example, vibrant contrasting and bold colours and prints are the new rage for accent pieces around the house. You can bring in furniture pieces that accentuate the same. Similarly, age-old woven rattan material in cabinets, wardrobes and dividers/partitions works beautifully with most interiors and gives off an old-school charm. Upholstered furniture allows you to change patterns and materials every few years.
One can integrate numerous trends into their homes by using them in furniture or as soft furnishings like rugs and wall hangings. Trends such as a fusion of ethnic and contemporary are here to stay. So, it’s suggested to follow trends here to stay rather than ones that come and go. You can bring it into your decor in so many different ways. For example, solid wood furniture with rattan cane back offers sustainable and eco-friendly comfort. As a result, it adds a cheerful mood to your interiors, which impacts the overall well-being of the homeowner.
Take the example of our Megharia – L-shaped sofa with a backrest and no arms for narrow, smaller living rooms. It helps to maximise your restricted space and yet be aesthetically pleasing. The Megharia sofa comes in a stylish L-shape that can be aligned against a wall giving square footage. It provides flexibility to move items around and is customisable for fabric and sizes. Additionally, the sofa has plum seating to keep the snuggle factor high, even if the overall dimensions are modest.
At Alankaram, we are embracing our designs’ ongoing “fusion” trend in multiple ways. For example, vibrant contrasting and bold colours and prints are the new rage for accent pieces around the house. We design furniture that accentuates the same. For instance, we blend age-old woven rattan material in cabinets, wardrobes and dividers/partitions with most interiors, giving off an old-school charm. With a thoughtfully curated design process, we amalgamate traditional with contemporary.
