Two years after the international home furnishings brand launched its flagship in Delhi, Sarita Handa brings its timeless designs to Mumbai. Situated at Shakti Mills lane in Mahalakshmi, the outlet’s loft-like architecture, replete with antiquated structural detailing and a courtyard, creates the perfect backdrop to flaunt the company’s line of furniture, soft goods and decorative pieces.
Salva Terra Home
Down the same lane is Salva Terra Home– an organic home decor atelier. Chief creative designer and co-owner Tanushree Basu’s curations are a reflection of her personal style and global adventures – hand-woven dhurries from Uttar Pradesh; multi-utility baskets made out of Sabai and sisal grass, soft furnishings with traditional Indian embroidery like kantha and zardozi, etc. The company’s collaborations with NGOs and Fair Trade organizations ensure superior quality control.
Gauri & Nainika Home
After 10 years in the fashion industry, designer duo Gauri and Nainika Karan extended their creative prowess to home interiors. The Gauri & Nainika Home flagship in Lado Sarai, Delhi, showcases understated furniture, home linen, and home accessories handpicked from across India. The brand also offers bespoke consultations.
Valaya Home Experience Centre
Another high-fashion brand to enter the world of interior design is The House of Valaya with Valaya Home Experience Centre at The Gallery on MG in New Delhi. The 6,000-square-foot space displays furniture and soft furnishings, flooring and wall installations, home accessories and the signature Valaya tapestries, designed by JJ Valaya. The label will introduce three interpretations each year, in sync with the fashion collections of the season.
Kuldeep Kaur decided to repurpose an old haveli in Delhi’s Jonapur village, as concept store, Serendipity. Her background in textile design and marketing facilitates a harmonious mix of vintage-style and contemporary furniture, fabrics, home accessories and apparel. The furniture is sourced from across India and international destinations like Bali; while the fabrics are designed in house.
