Decor Destination, nestled in one of the leafy by lanes of Indiranagar, is every homemakers quintessential idea of an Indian home decor store. Let me explain why this is so. Sreedhar, the owner of the store got this idea of a store a few years ago, which came about due to the changing aspirations of the Indian homemaker. Despite the proliferation of ‘instant’ buy and bolt furniture made of particle board/ compressed wood shavings, the realisation that there is still a section of society which appreciates well made hardwood furniture meant to last a long time when offered at sensible prices, led to the idea of the store. The result can be seen through out the store with their eye for detail for the finished pieces which include a contemporary mix of the reproductions of antique and hard to find pieces with modernistic pieces found at the bigger stores aka FabIndia, Evok etc but with prices comparatively on the lower side.
Carrying a nice mix of traditional and modern, simple and ornate, there is a good amalgamation of furniture pieces in the store. Be it the super inviting leather Chesterfield or the more modernistic string chair in one of the rooms, everyone is bound to find something that they just have to have in their home. The look and feel of the store lends itself to a heart warming and homely feel. And if the looks don’t do it for you then the graciousness of the store owners is sure to do it for you!
Since the store is essentially a house that has been converted to a store, each room has been done up with it’s own settings as a bedroom, dining room or a living room. The idea is to give the buyers a clue of how the piece would look like in an actual home setting. All very tastefully done but with so much furniture around me, I got feeling of being cramped up after a while.
Sridhar says their book shelves are big sellers, and I could understand why. Solid wood, beautiful construction and some very interesting designs will definitely make them stand out pieces in your home. My personal favourite apart from the book shelves was the uber comfortable leather high back arm chair and the foot-stool. I can just imagine spending several
slumberous productive hours of my life on that chair.
Make sure you do not miss out on the small selection of garden furniture as well. If furniture isn’t your jam, there is a very fascinating collection of masks and Indian curios scattered all around the store . A classic case of one store please all, they aim to grow into a one stop-shop for all your home decor needs in the future.
Decor Destination is also foraying into custom made kitchens that comes with all hassles of installation and follow through servicing taken care of. Bookmark the address and the next time you are in and around Indiranagar, make it a point to drop in. Happy Shopping guys!
