Yeah, today’s morning spell has made me ponder over hugging the floor & create some casual seating to relax & enjoy my favourite season.
Floor seatings are not just a trending Interior option today but have been in Indian tradition through many civilisations. Not only in Indian culture, many countries around the world including Japan, Morocco, Turkey, Egypt, China are popular with floor seating in both casual & formal set ups. In fact, Doctors all over the world have been advocating health benefits of floor seating for hundreds of years.
