CHENNAI: Taj Khazana, in association with The Great Eastern Home, is organising a curated show of fine furniture, vibrant art and stylish home accents, ‘The Grand Trunk Show’, from December 18 to 21, at Vivanta by Taj-Connemara.
The collection will range from classic English, French, Chinese and Art Deco furniture and artefacts. Signature pieces like the French Pedestals, a fine gold-leaf work of the French period of 1700s are a few of the eminent works that will find pride of place at Vivanta by Taj-Connemara.
The Grand Trunk Show comes to Chennai for the first time after a successful launch at the Taj Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad, followed by showings in Delhi at both the Taj Mahal and the Taj Palace Hotels. It was also presented at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai to celebrate the 110th anniversary, and recently at The Taj West End, Bengaluru.
The show in Chennai has been carefully curated as a celebration of Vivanta by Taj-Connemara’s glorious legacy through design, furniture and art. Built in the mid-19th century, this ‘vintage cool’ hotel has epitomised colonial brilliance through the centuries, in the heart of the commercial district of Chennai. Today, Vivanta by Taj-Connemara stands a landmark in the city, where heritage and history meet modernity in a rare blend.
