How well will that multicolour abstract go with your brown walls? Will that bird installation gets its due against the kitchen window? It's not every day that you come across events that help you answer such questions. Enter, Jugalbandi.

The show, true to its name, is a fusion, or interplay, of furniture and paintings so that the two can be seen in unison. On display are works by Sudhir Tailang, Alka Raghuvanshi, Shridhar Iyer, Manisha Gawade and many more artists.

"This exhibition is a complete package to ease people's chase for paintings that will complement their furniture. I have created some of the paintings especially for this exhibition, keeping in mind the varied needs of people," says Gawade, a participating artist.

A painting by Partha Sengupta.

The exhibition space looks like a well-kept house would - complete with furniture and household items, and the walls are painted in colours that harmonise with the paintings.

"I felt overwhelmed to see the dark colour of the wall adding stars to my painting. It will definitely help connoisseurs get rid of their confusion, and make a smart choice of paintings for their homes and offices," says Raghuvanshi, whose vibrant and metallic colours add grandeur to the space.

Iyer, another artist whose works are on display, says, "I think it's a great idea of promoting art among young people, as they may not turn up at art galleries but they definitely will come for their craze of decorating their homes to the best of their capabilities."
