with a story
Each furniture in Soulosofie´s vintage collection carries its own story and each region of India adds its characteristics to the craft. In Gujarat, the furniture is often colorful and in the south ornamented. In the early 1900s the handicraft was influenced strongly by the colonial times, as you can clearly see in the more clean and simple shapes. Each product is hand-picked and each renovation is done with great care on location in Rajasthan. Wood is mostly recycled teak/sheesam.
The age varies in the range between 70-20 years in most cases.
– Each product contains something that is not perfect. It is not a defect, that is what makes it human and unique.
Use and re-use
On our trips to Rajasthan and other places in India we often find wonderful items previously used for food preparation, water etc. We handpick the things we love and give them new life as flowerpots, trivets, candle holders or just as piece of art to be used as decoration,
We just love when you can find new uses for old things. Our carefully selected wood interior design items are either existing old pieces, or new items produced by craftsmen using recycled wood.
We just love our patinated brass items, you can always find a selection of items. From small candlelight holders to boxes, handles and elefants.
You can always find a selection of old or remade interior design items made of iron in our online store, or by visiting our showroom in Son Bugadelles, Palma de Mallorca. They all come without any additives but a story.
This means they already have, or will get a beautiful patina of natural corrosion.
Marble and stone
Vintage stone used for baking chapati bread makes the most beautiful hot plate, or why not use them to make your own unique ginger bread. Beautiful hand carved lotus plates and bowls in marble for garden or tableware use, and a marble soap dish for your bathroom.
– The possibilities are endless.
