With my brand, The Pink Elephant, I am hoping to reach out to decorators, stylists & people from across the world and source products for them. I normally find products from various thrift stores and export houses which I will regularly publish on my Facebook page @thepinkelephantindia. The products are cost effective as they don’t need to be purchased in bulk.

Show Home by Furncraft De’Collage

Show Homes seem to be catching up with the Indian Decor fraternity, an example being one designed by Nitin Kohli of Furncraft De’Collage. I feel any person can get a better sense of the furniture in a comprehensive setting like that of a Show Home and they are also a great way for designer’s to showcase their style to customers. In this case Nitin Kohli experiments with various shapes, forms and surfaces to bring together a great amalgamation of International elegance and some fabulous 2013 Trends like Art Deco, Graphic Futurism and Retro Chic. We at Style City anyway love Trend spotting and designers who bring trends to us, so great job! Another thing that gets a thumbs up, showcasing works of other designers especially upcoming ones, in this case a lot of lights have been done by Klove and some of the art work by new comer Zehra Warsi. So here are the images, let me know what you think!
