The furniture of the Barasingha Collection expresses the primal desires and fears associated with forest life. Reflected in the form of each piece is the essence of delicacy, the intelligence, the poise and organic force found in the flora and fauna of the forest. Pared to an essence, the barasingha collection seeks to reflect both the manifest feelings of danger that come with the exotic, and the personal identification that comes with the familiar.
