This store houses adaptations of traditional Indian designs, along with
international options. 1BHK designers keep small Mumbai homes in mind. The pieces, from couches to wine racks to paintings by Mumbai-based gallerist Ashish Balram Nagpal, are designed to fit into compact spaces. The India-inspired pieces, such as the modern rattan divan, are the real winners.
From Rs200 to Rs10,000 for home accessories, Rs7,000 to Rs40,000 for furniture and about Rs1.5-2 lakh per piece for artwork.
Kamala City, Lower Parel, Mumbai
This store specializes in neutral-colour linen enriched by simple prints, embroidery and basic stripes, plaids or floral patterns. The look is elegant, though a tad repetitive.

This new home accessory and furniture store opened its doors recently in Mumbai’s Raghuvanshi Mills, a place already populated by many furniture stores. There are a few standout pieces (see main story), but the stylish products do not break many moulds. Rather look here for yet another option in basic colour palettes, straight lines and contemporary designs found in the stores at the compound.
