Village decor...

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

I haven't been to India in a while but some of my fondest memories were with my family lounging around on old rope made daybeds ('munjah' as we called them...sorry I'm spelling this phonetically). These 'munjahs' were used for sleeping, sitting around, you would always find a random bibi (aka 'grandmom') one one of these babies and a pile of vegetables next to her on a tray ready for her to prep in some way or another. I never once thought that these functional pieces back in small Indian villages could actually work here as a design element. So I was pleasantly surprised when I came across this 'munjah' (Charpoiye daybed)  on VivaTerra. I would actually use this in my home. Yep throw it on my deck and bring back that desi village vibe right in my own backyard.
Love the colour. Charpoiye Daybed available at VivaTerra.
Brings back fantastic memories. I miss my Nani ('grandma') now. Available here.

Beautiful colours and wonderful memories. I think you could put a piece like this in a lot of different places. Kids would love it too! Just needed some photo inspiration. Let us know when you get yours :)

Love the colour and shape of that piece. What a great backyard space!

What fantastic color & terrific memories, too! I think you should definitely order one for your deck. It's funny, I never learned to write Vietnamese(I have a 6 cd learning course that I've never gotten through) and therefore write those things phonetically, too.
