In Varanasi and other towns along the shore of the Ganges River in India, locals collect abandoned driftwood from teak trees for a variety of uses. Buildings that were once a stage for ancient ceremonies have become the materials for craftsmen’s works of art. Painted chata, the Hindi word for ceiling, along with doors, beams, and floorboards are reclaimed and constructed into furniture.
This media console is entirely handmade. Each piece is one of a kind and has been carefully designed as a multipurpose unit for any home. It still bears resemblance to its many prior uses; the paint from doors and ceilings give a raw and authentic quality rarely found anywhere in the world. Take home a piece of Indian tradition today.
