enduringly Indian furnishing


champa collection

Designers: Sheila Nambiar and Shruti Phagre-Mahajan @ Eucalyptus

I am so tempted to put the title of this post in Hindi – borrowing from an old Hindi song:

Champa – Chameli muskaye {meaning: Champa and Chameli (both are flowering plants) are smiling.} I am not doing that. But let me warn you I am emotional at the moment!

These home-furnishing products are designed by two very talented young designers (NID ians + MS University @ Vadodara-ites) Sheila Nambiar and Shruti Phagre-Mahajan.

Brand new in the market they do not fail to entice you with a very thoughtful and ‘full of memories’ collection.

A lot of India – things Indian, memories of bygone era, Indian native plants have got expressed in their collections! Indian tradition is at rework here.

Though very Indian in theme and colours yet collections has absolutely minimalist and contemporary feel.

Each and every collection transports me to a different land and era.

Chaupad – lets play- anybody game!

The ancient dice game of India inspires this rich blue Mangalgiri runner embroidered with Kantha.

If you know how to, you can actually play chaupad on it with cowries and gotis.

Ulrike Acker and Malte Nisch @ bOmb design

These young designers of  bOmb design based in Berlin are doing the rethinking and coming up with new and obvious interpretations of everyday objects.

Why didn’t I think this before- I am sure we all are going to ask this question while looking at this clever get inside blanket. Your cold feet can immediately slip into the warmth of a pocket on the inside of the blanket. Left hand has a glove of its own and the right hand can come out through this hole to hold whatever you want to hold and slip right back inside No freezing, no chattering and no uncomfortable body blanket maneuvering.


Why cushions have to be of particular shapes only? Ergonomically shaped cushions which flow with body shape and answer a particular need is what the designers have produced in these get down cushions. It is a collection giving you all cozy solutions.
