Nirmal Furniture is made from teakwood and has floral designs painted in a golden colour. The Nizams of Hyderabad were very impressed by this style of craftsmanship, and some Kshatriyas or woodcarvers received their royal patronage. Since then, the art has flourished. The artisans imbibed this art from their forefathers and have followed the same procedure from generation to generation. The furniture is made from teakwood and the process begins with cutting and carving the wood into the required shape . Sandpaper is rubbed on the surface to smoothen it, and then a coat of primer and lappam is applied. Once the surface is smooth, varnish is applied and allowed to dry. Finally, the floral designs are painted on the item.
