Catalogue of Vernacular Furniture: Rajasthan
From a humble machi (stool) to a robust majju (cabinet), a wide array of vernacular furniture and objects have adorned the traditional houses of Rajasthan for centuries. The furniture and objects in this catalogue, whether highly ornate or purely functional, play an important role in the lifestyles and material culture of Rajasthan’s population. Catalogue of Vernacular Furniture: Rajasthan features over 500 pieces of vernacular furniture and objects from Rajasthan. These pieces have been shortlisted from nearly 1519 examples of furniture and objects recorded across the state. The catalogue is an outcome of extensive fieldwork, research and documentation carried out for the international collaborative research project titled Vernacular Furniture of North-West India.
