An unforgettable saturday home tour.

While checking out options for our new home,we chanced up on this shop called Aadhi Arts at Teynampet.The store boasts of  beauties of the wooden kind.Such class.They deal in antique and colonial furniture and also reproductions in Burma Teak and Rose wood.The store owner Mr.Prabhakaran Sambandam is a very friendly and approachable person.He can enlighten you about any query you have on antiques.Apart from his business,photography is his main passion.He has such multifarious interest's I'm yet to find out more!Well last weekend he was very benevolent towards us.We just showed up at his store and without much ado we landed up at his home for a home tour.How cool is that.Check out some of the pictures I clicked. 

Home is where the heart is.I love these antique columns.It lends a unique charm to a home.

What an elegant door.The frames are made of teak wood and the main door made of rosewood.This is in the first floor which leads to the antique pillar in the first pic. 

Another lovely door.This is the entrance to his architect daughter Harinee's room on the second floor.

Harinee's gorgeous study,with a nice lived in feel to it.

A four poster bed fit for a princess.

A fabulous rosewood cabinet.

An antique chest of drawers.

There were so many other things to be photographed like antique Tanjore paintings and panels and so many other artefact's .It will surely deserve another post.It is splendid indeed to wake up to these timeless beauties.I was too overwhelmed by the lovely home and the hospitality shown,I wish I could have taken better pictures.Thank you for making our evening so cherishable.
