Brief history of this type of furniture. Beginning around the 1500s, a series of European powers invaded and conquered parts of India. The first was Portugal, followed by France in the late 1600s, then the Dutch and finally the English in the 18th century. People came and settled and built homes and businesses.
These settlers wanted furniture similar to what they knew from their home countries. So these Europeans used Indian carpenters to develop furniture using European styles and Indian materials.
The Indian artisans slowly added their own style to the furniture along with the skills learned from the British creating a unique blend.
