From Burma with love

The Burmese Art Deco, a local expression of the globally loved Art Deco phenomenon is a legacy of colonial experience. Burmese artisans have been skilled with working with the abundant natural resources of woods, bamboo, lacquer for centuries. So also, for this style, usually Burma teak, hand carved and polished, sometimes paired with rattan-work can be seen mostly in this furniture style. Unlike the global Art Deco, we do not find newer materials like steel, chrome, brass or precious inlays in these pieces of furniture. Use of geometric repeating patterns, straight lines, gentle curves embellished with local motifs such as lotus, peacocks etc. can be seen in cabinets, arm chairs, sofas, plantation furniture, bookcases etc. of this period.

Available at ‘The Great Eastern Home’, the backsplat of this armchair is designed using cut outs in art deco patterns which is suitable for the local climate as it also allows air to flow through. The woven rattan seat too helps to keep the body cool. The cabinet showcases a delicate butterfly moulded in solid wood. The flared sides of the cabinet frame add a softening touch to the piece whilst the curves on the panel below gently mimic the louvres of windows used in colonial bungalows. The small dresser has geometric lines that give it character of its own. The repetitive solid lines give this a strong masculine presence. Burmese Art Deco furniture serves as a great piece of furniture for weekend homes and farmhouses as well as terrace seating. Make most of your space by adding these pieces of furniture to it and creating a comfortable space.
