New-age silverware home décor accessories balance the charm of traditions with the flair of impressive elegance. Jalaj Anand, Creative Director Frazer, And Haws tells us how silver artifacts are the most preferred gifts this season.

In a globalized world, modern products, designs, and motifs pass from culture, country, and history to form a collective design sense that is pervading the design landscape. These signs are apparent on the Indian silverware gifting industry as well.
Gone are the days when a silver thali along with idols of Lakshmi and Ganesha, were the mainstay of silver product purchases. People rarely ventured far from these staples, besides pieces of silver for the bride or close guests at weddings. We see now, that silver has become a versatile and widely used material, which has helped evolve its perception as a gift.
Adding an edge
Silver’s high use is apparent in the interiors accessories segment. Statement clocks, desktop accessories, mirrors, wall art, lamps, and other decorative artifacts are some of the objects comprising of silver that are available in shops these days. Usage of mixed media has been instrumental in enhancing the aesthetics of the products. Another trend to note is the prevalence of silver in personal accessories such as cufflinks, tie pins, broaches and kurta button. These pieces lend a regal air to any outfit.
