Many homes are developing a strong preference for local furniture over imported items today, and notable trends in consumer buying patterns may be noted, with décor businesses that encourage regional craft and local talents and resources.
Furthermore, as people and organisations turn inward to improve comfort and well-being, demand for personalised, handcrafted items has risen significantly. This growing enthusiasm for indigenous goods, fuelled in part by the epidemic, has prompted furniture designers to boost the ante and provide designs that meet worldwide standards in terms of quality, detailing, and ergonomic comfort.
"The process of furniture-making demands for a striking balance between ergonomics (comfort), joinery details (craft), utility, and beauty," explains Suman Sharma, Principal and Head of Business at Mangrove Collective. We think that things must give value because they have an emotional connection with their owners.
If required, both handcraft and technology must be used, and items must be manufactured with materials that have been carefully chosen and sourced. Designers from all around the country may build items by looking at goods and processes in new ways, and they are only limited by their ingenuity.

Customizing a product allows it to become an extension of the client's personality and taste, opening up a whole new world of possibilities. More significantly, it refers to the designer's, furniture maker's, or craftsperson's, and owner's shared vision in co-creating the thing, resulting in a superbly produced, high-quality piece.
For a country like India, which has a rich heritage of craft traditions, we have a fantastic potential to combine indigenous knowledge with contemporary engineering to create ergonomic and attractive furniture. Local companies breathe fresh life into indigenous and obscure crafts by reinterpreting and adapting these skill sets for contemporary living.
Quality: Knowing how to make a high-quality piece of furniture necessitates a thorough examination of what raw materials may be utilised and how they can be combined with ancient crafts and skills. Cane weaving, for example, is a time-honored technique that dates back centuries, but it is seeing a resurgence in popularity in recent years.
