Fall brings exciting new arrivals to World Market – among them, the Bombay Bazaar Collection. This assortment of furniture, decor, dinnerware, and other treasures comes from South Asia, an area known for richly colorful and intricate artwork that can be found in the most unexpected places. One unique genre is their truck art. Prevalent in both Pakistan and India, the art of elaborately decorating delivery trucks and buses is unique to the region. Long-distance drivers like to have their trucks painted in styles that remind them of home, and leave no space – interior or exterior – undecorated. Some trucks even have elaborate wood carvings added to their rides, while others opt for political messaging, historical scenes or mirror work. Inspired by the truck art of the region, our buyers chose products that bring a little bit of that wild ride to your home.
From Truck Art to Living Room Art
If you love the Bombay Bazaar look, but are unsure how to incorporate it into your space, try having a dedicated corner and group Indian decor items together with plants, candles and whatever else you treasure.
Bold and Surprisingly Versatile
Make a statement and introduce a boldly patterned furniture piece to your home. Or try a couple of detailed, psychedelic serving trays to brighten up a plain table. Combine intricate metal knick-knacks with the crazy colorful items for a theme that looks totally pulled together. You’ll be surprised at how easily these beautiful items coordinate with so many styles of contemporary decor.
