Our Delhi store – a locus of colors, patterns, and creativity

February 2, 2017

 

While we have been happily helping our clients with gleaning ideas for their interiors and bringing their creative visions to life through our stores in Pune and Bangalore, we always wanted to set up one in the capital city. And we did last year! So our Delhi store is the newest addition to the brood and latest entrant in the mix at the posh locale of Defense colony.

An effervescing hub, our Delhi store palpitates with expressive colors, exquisite patterns, and endless possibilities. It is a dreamy lair where architects, clients, and designers come together to bandy ideas and co-create. Sited in a 5000 square feet of Delhi’s urban expanse and spread over two floors, the store provides an apt setting for imaginative thinking.

Couched in the language of traditional Indian textile art, our Delhi store houses all the beautiful things we love – bolts of fabrics, surface ornamentation technique swatches, installations, artworks, objet d’arts, and haberdashery. Each nook, corner, alcove, and crevice of the store has something to tell – be that our zardosi adda where our karigars work their mojo to create painstakingly elaborate designs to the textile art that captures Delhi’s iconic Mughal architecture in detailed threadwork.

Like this area of the store which is draped in 6 fabric panels, each paying an artistic ode to India’s rich heritage textile craft.
 

The first panel takes inspiration from Madhubani art, a painting technique done using natural materials and dyes. Two hand-painted Piscine motifs adorn the white surface in vibrant and exciting hues which are fleshed out using multiple stitchery techniques.
 

Inspired from miniature paintings of India, this panel is hand-painted on circular patches of green silk, and further appliqued on a quilted grey silk fabric.
