Wood carved elements in Balinese Retro Furniture
Typically centred around its provincial origins, Balinese solid wood furniture has beautifully carved design elements.
- The Jeparan Style: The Jeparan style and design represent effortless elegance and simple forms in solid wood products. Jeparan motifs originated from traditional Javanese reliefs with many outside cultural influences such as European, Arab, and Chinese. Therefore, these designs further translated into natural patterns of leaves, flowers, vines, and fruits. Another subdivided type is its contemporary pattern involving evolved sensibilities. They too feature natural patterns but are more widespread with a modern appeal. The current designs are less detailed and intertwined as they are meant to suit export orders.
- The Yogyakarta Style: The Yogyakarta style is borne from the Hindu, Buddhist, and Chinese influences. Their designs include the dragon motif influence from the Chinese culture. Then the Garuda motif comes from the Hindu culture, representing the bird-like creature from Hindu mythology. And, the Floral motif represents the Lotus flower originating from the Hindu and Chinese origins. The geometric motif called the "Wajikan" is trapezoidal and is a Javanese native style.
- Bali Style: The Bali style designs are unfinished products from Java. They are processed to emulate the vintage aura. You might call this retro furniture but inspired by the Jeparan and Yogyakarta styles with a mix of contemporary.
