Aradhana Anand runs new Delhi, India-based limón design studio dedicated to handcrafted furniture that is upholstered with traditional and contemporary textiles. It’s great to see the stately wingback upholstered in classic paisleys or a slipper chair in a striking ikat. It’s a match made in textile heaven and you wonder why we don’t see more of the pairing of classical furniture outlines with equally classical Eastern textiles. Think of it as the chair and the textile reimagined for modern times but retaining the romance of the tradition. I chatted with Aradhana for ouatt magazine (link to our audio over-a-cup-of-tea chat) late last year and have been waiting to see the physical studio space that Limon is going to be based at. It was bound to be gorgeous and welcoming, and serve as the perfect backdrop for their signature chairs.
The East-meets-West vibe is streamlined and elegant and reflects Aradhana’s well-traveled, citizen-of-the-world aesthetic. I have more pictures and they are in the upcoming issue of the ouatt magazine (don’t forget, there is complimentary access to all new issues for our newsletter subscribers and the latest issue comes out end of the week). You can visit limón online here and be sure to bookmark them – especially so, if you love textiles, elegant, modern interiors, East-meets-West fusion, or all of the above!
