Nestled in a little lane in Hauz Khas is Country Collection – a unique shop that sells antique objects and furniture from all over India. It has mostly wooden furniture – old chest of drawers, cabinets, wall panels, poster beds, side tables, book shelves and carts. Most of them are purportedly restored items, retrieved from heritage sites. The artefacts have either been repaired or recreated from wood of old bullock carts, doors, windows and unwanted furniture. The shop is full of interesting and aesthetically pleasing objects – mirrors, partitions and paintings included. You simply cannot leave without buying something, anything, even a souvenir.
Small boxes and frames sell for Rs. 800 to Rs.1000 each, while chests and shelves are sold for about Rs. 15,000 – Rs. 20,000 per piece, while the beds and heavy furniture command higher prices.
