Our new range of quilted bedspreads, dinnerware with Indian aphrodisiacs, handmade wool rugs with geometric inlay, occasional tables as Pillar Pods - to be used as side tables, stools, floaters, champagne buckets - or to stack up as temple pillars and Memsahib tables in Dupont Corian that salute the "Madames e memsahibs" of India - are just some of the items we presented.
