Known as Kavichchi in Sinhala, this divan is crafted out of sooriyamaara wood and is available in a variety of styles. Originally of Dutch origin, these large seats were crafted out of indigenous wood, which were afterwards carved with designs and motifs characteristic to Sri Lanka. By the 19th century they were found in verandahs and inside houses.
Taking inspiration from traditional craft styles, to bring authentic designs and functional furniture into your home this practical coffee table is designed with slender legs that’s accented with a woven table top. While lower in height, it has a wide spacious surface top. A lacquered coating highlights the warm, natural grain of the wood and provides a sleek, smooth finish.
This simple form of our coffee table is the perfect foil for a rich character of teak timbers. A substantial top rests on a squared plinth support- a rustic yet elegant presence. The solid wood planks are sanded and lightly waxed, but otherwise left to its natural finish, to let the beauty of the wood take the center stage.
Planters chairs were also known as verandah chairs as these chairs most often graced the verandah or the front porch. They were introduced by the british and may have originated in South India. They were called planters chairs or plantation chairs because they were popularized by the british as seating in the open gardens and verandahs of plantation bungalows in the hill country. Later on, they became a prominent part of our culture as well and were traditionally reserved for the patriarch of the house. The seats of these chairs are weaved out of rattan.
For extra comfort a slip cover light feathery cushion can be inserted to the head of the chair.
