Originally from Calicut, this quirky print has traveled all over the world, as kitsch, and become contemporary again. Large colourful floral motifs on upholstery are characteristic of Chintz. You can go all out, and plop a chintz sofa, against a minimalistic wall. Or go for a plain sofa, with chintz printed cushions for that unexpected ‘pop’.
Since these varieties of Indian ethnic prints are constantly evolving, don’t feel pressured to ‘get it right’. You can always call up your interior decorators to help you guide in order to achieve what’s on your mind.
