Moroso’s Charpoy : India’s Traditional Day Bed

Designers Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien offer us their modern take on the Indian Traditional Day Bed called the Charpoy which by the way is perfect for small space interior decorating and multi-purpose use. Charpoy has a handmade cotton and silk mattress embellished by precious crafted embroidery with a facsimile of a game, similar to drafts, which in India is reminiscent of the time of wars when kingdoms and wives were won as bets. The mattress of Charpoy is a highly valuable item that encapsulates the tradition, craft skills and richness of the hand finishing, contrasting with the underlying wood base with a black lacquer finish produced in Italy. See the entire collection of modern furniture that dares to defy the usual from Moroso of Italy.
