A3635

Takhats were originally used as daybeds by the merchant classes in Rajasthan - particularly the Shekavati area. The word takhat is derived from the word for throne. In Rajasthan they are mostly made from Roheda, a variety of Acacia wood that grows in the desert. They are also found in Gujerat, Andra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh where teak is used. Takhats make a perfect coffee table in both contemporary and period interiors.
