Contemporary Thai by Wongvipa Devahastin na Ayudhya
Photographs by Luca Invernizzi Tettoni
Style - Interiors - Decorating Ideas
Thailand offers a rich spectrum of decorating choices for the international home owner. Methods and materials once reserved for royalty such as gold-leaf stencilling, lacquerware, and the finest silks and celadons are adapted to create modern homewares of extraordinary beauty and versatility. A carved and gilded alter table inspires a clean-lined side console; a handwoven silk ceremonial cloth becomes a vibrant table runner; old Buddhist manuscript cabinets are recycled as elegant television cupboards. Rustic elements such as earthen-ware, bamboo and rattan, cotton and hemp are transformed into sophisticated tableware, lighting features, and soft furnishings. Photographed in Thai settings as diverse as a converted rice barn, a five-star spa, a garden sala and a palatial penthouse, these pieces will be equally at home in New York, Tokyo and London.
