Bunakara Coming to High Point Market
Products include furniture, home accents and textiles hand-crafted in India of acacia wood, cotton, linen, natural dyes and sand-cast brass. Each piece features a signature detail such as an iconic single painted chair leg, a hidden message on the inner core of a pillow, an ornate sand-cast brass ferrule on a simple acacia table leg or an hand-applied lace appliqué. Most pieces also feature Aranha’s signature, a beaded Flower of India insignia.
Designed by Joana Aranha, an international interior designer and retail store designer, Bunakara’s product line offers pieces curated in her global search for clients.
“Bunakara means ‘weaver’ in Hindi and this is a line that weaves the history and the emotions in a mix of the past with the present,” said Dixon Bartlett, U.S. project manager for Bunakara. “Bunakara is specially curated for retailers and designers who appreciate sophisticated, hand crafted design that is difficult to find today. From the soul of the artist that Joana is, through the hands of artisans, to the homes of those with a sophisticated artistic sense of style, Bunakara helps us all discover what can’t be found.”
The company’s showroom is located in Space G-6055 of the SALON in the Suites at Market Square.
