Modern designs featuring traditional patterns

India home decor makers are mixing traditional and current design elements to appeal to a wider range of buyers in the international market.

Home decor designs from India typically feature bold colors, traditional forms and intricate patterns. New models including glass, metal and stone vases, candleholders and other home accessories in the coming months will showcase more muted colors and contemporary forms while still showcasing artwork depicting India’s culture.

“Suppliers are focusing on mixing modern and traditional elements as this combination results in designs that are unique and stylish. This is also the hottest trend in the home decor industry,” said Bushra Baseerat, export consultant for the Hinrich Foundation. “Some examples of this trend include crystal candle holders and vases with geometric shapes and an antique finish, and wooden home decor items with straight lines in subtle color palettes such as ivory, beige and tan.”

Vintage pieces with mosaic, damask patterns and intricate metalwork will remain popular among upcoming home accessories.

Companies producing rugs, mats and other home textiles will continue to employ sustainable and environment-friendly materials such as coir, jute, bamboo and recycled cotton fabric due to the high demand for these items. Models using organic dye are also expected to grow in the coming months.
