The Bed. Things you should know about it.


Bed. An object we seek at the end of our day when we feel fatigue and out of energy. The soft pillows and the spongy mattress is where we can lie down and forget about how good/bad the day has been. It is again the same place where we share our thoughts with either ourselves or with our spouse. A bed is meant to rejuvenate ourselves with of sleep. While there are many types of beds available for us to rest but nothing pampers us more than a large double king sized bed with a thick mattress and loads of pillows.

 During the time of early man, people slept in caves. Weather was inclement and cold, and they often used old animal skins to keep themselves warm. Later, beds during the time of the Roman Empire and the medieval ages were massive, especially in the houses of the royals.

 Even in India, the royal families had massive bedrooms and occupying these huge spaces were imposing beds with huge bed stands and towering height. Infact, the bedsteads of the Egyptians were so high that to ascend on them steps were used sometimes. In India, we had (and still have) the Charpoy. Usually made of ropes tied across a roughly put together wooden frame, the charpoy is often used in villages. A modern foldable version of it is also available which is made of aluminium and mostly used in cities.

 Then there are various kinds of beds that have been classified according to types. For instance, adjustable beds which can be varied in terms of height, air bed that has an air mattress instead of a regular one. This can be rolled up and packed and is mostly intended for guest use. Other type is Bassinets which are beds for infants, a bunk bed which is an arrangement whereby one bed is on top of the other, a hammock which is a temporary resting place created by tying the two opposite ends to trees, a murphy bed which can be folded into a cabinet or a wall. These are designed to save space in cramped environs.

These are some unique types of beds. Though there are available hundreds of variations. So, from now onwards when you decide to rest, do remember the furniture that you are being cradled in has quite the history!

Furniture Design. What works and what doesn't?

Furniture has been around forever. Ever since we realized that we need to stop sitting on logs and the use of tools to turn those logs into shapes that we find pretty, we have been producing furniture constantly.  Early vintage furniture was functional. The wood was solid and designs were at par with that era. With the passage of time we got environmentally conscious and nodded to preserve the trees. Also, we started using wood substitutes like some metals, cane and artificial wood to make modern furniture.

The most durable piece of furniture is a park bench but that is not the ideal furniture you'd want at home. Similarly, the most comfortable bean bag will spoil in the rain and hence can’t be an ideal furniture again. Designing and crafting a furniture is a complicated process. There is only one constant but many variables. What we want in terms of looks, usage, life-span, etc., needs to be taken into account before we buy our furniture today. For those who have the time to look carefully and smartly, great furniture does exist.

Furniture design is indispensable in decorating living space. You might want something specific and this is a tricky proposition as bad furniture can make or break the entire visual balance of your home. If you have a vintage bungalow you can keep those massive wooden cupboards that probably came with it but if you live in a studio apartment in a high rise tower you might need to make some important furniture choices.

There are different uses for different kinds of furniture. An end table and a side table are both tables but both are unique in their own way. Similarly, a bookshelf can come in a dazzling array of shapes. There are some furniture that serves only a singular purpose and takes up a large space  in your house. The chest of drawers and bed are good examples of this. Each piece of furniture needs to be picked carefully so they don’t clash with the others.

Interior Decor. A few Essentials

Interior Decor. A few Essentials

Home Decor is a very tricky space. There is a misconception among people that anything that can be hung on a wall or put on a table, can be classified as decor. This is far from the truth. Decor is intact all-encompassing and can even include small pieces of furniture. For example, a bedside table, or a work-bench can fall under both furniture and decor umbrellas. Also, decor is a term loosely thrown around and confuses people because they do not know what to invest in and what to stay far away from.

If your decor is beautiful and tasteful your house will be accentuated in terms of elegance. But if you choose the wrong decor, you might end up looking like you bought your home decor from the nearby most convenient flea market. Here we talk about some simple items of decor that you should include in your home in order to make it look great and appealing.

The most ubiquitous home decor item is the magazine box. Usually, people are in a state of mind to fill their racks with Forbes and Sports magazine issues to show how well read they are. But the stand in which these are kept usually turn old very early and that aren’t in use any more. Magazine Basket category has some quality products that deserve a mention in this regard. Made of the highest quality wood, these come in royal finishes so that your latest magazine issues are held in style.

Another common item in any household is a wall-clock. Either you can have one of those made of cheap tacky plastic that look like they came free with a box of cereal or you can have the Shekhawati Wall Clocks. They are reasonably priced and exude class which shows you time accurately.

A Key Bowl is an essential in every household. Keys are the most commonly replaced items and unlike cellphones you cannot “call your set of keys” in case if you lose them. While key hangers are great but sometimes the hooks fall off and the continuous rubbing of wood against your wall spoils both the wood and the emulsion. Introducing the Assorted Old Look Bowl that contains anything from a couple of sets of keys to something that you might think of value. There is also the Key Box for you to keep you keys more securely.

Decor is important and essential. Home By Shekhavati brings you the most innovative, classy and durable Home Decor that is present in today’s competitive space of Home Decor Items.
