Exquisite Fragments of History
Relics of the past, antiques tell unique stories. They carry the flavour of bygone conversations, remind us of the extravagances – and perhaps the hardships – of another era, and remain trend-proof: while antiques are less likely to be super trendy, they are also less likely to ever be untrendy. We find it fascinating that in antique furniture, the imperfections are often celebrated than dreaded.
It is for this reason the gallery is named, Prakalyam. In Sanskrit, the word means "all things beautiful", and in Hindi, the same word encompasses two words, 'prachin' and 'kaal', meaning "ancient times".
