This book is an outcome of a comprehensive study of the kaleidoscopic variety of furniture articles prevailing during the period second century BC to sixth-seventh centuries AD. The book is divided into various chapters highlighting the enormous details of each item of the furniture articles like thrones, chairs, wheeled furniture, seats, wicker stands, tables, bedsteads, etc.

The indigenous traits and the foreign impacts on the Indian furniture are brilliantly highlighted. To achieve this end, the sculptures of Barhut, Sanchi, Amaravati, Nagarjunakonda, Mathura, Gandhara and the murals of Ajanta, supplemented by the literary data have been brought within the compass of the study.
