Spirituality and style


IF YOU are the kind who relates beauty to spirituality, then Teak Heirlooms' Nirvana range is for you.

The store has come up with a collection of life-size Buddha statues. There are also teak-hewn and wood carved icons of the Dhammapada meditating under a peepul tree, in different postures. Smaller items such as finely woven cane and wood bowls with Indonesian batik finish as well as trays and coasters inlaid with cinnamon, coral and mother-of-pearl could liven up your kitchen. The gazebo, a miniature summerhouse crafted from mighty coconut logs and planks, is large enough for six adults to sit on and is unique for its creativity and style. The Balinese Komodo dragons made from wood and larger-than-life painted birds can help bring a feel of Nature into your living room. Apart from this special range, lovers of classy furniture could choose from exquisite tables whittled from the teak tree root, teak and rosewood sofas and chairs, beds, bedside tables and finely crafted pieces for sitting room, lounge, dining area, hall and garden.

An exhibition-cum-sale is on till April 15 at 19, First Cross Street, Sterling Road.
