As I was looking over some old photo folders, the photos at Dan's house in Harrisonburg that I took last year caught my eyes. I had been to his house for lunch and the sight of some amazing bamboo furniture struck me and prompted me to take some photographs.
These furniture, Dan explained, was imported from Vietnam. Beautiful and innovative designs. Something else, which I may have ignored while clicking away struck me again while looking at the pictures. There is an Apatani glass - tanii turla near one of the bamboo sofas.
A tanii turla in United States of America sound something unusual, but not so when one thinks of its beauty and elegance. Apart from its utility value, it could easily be one of the most prized possessions in a sitting room.
