Diwali is around the corner. It’s time to clean, spruce up and possibly add a little something to give our homes a new look! Most shops and stores are showing off their latest designs and offering great deals. We too thought it was a good time to start looking at furniture for Project Comeback.

Furniture Shopping in Delhi:

We had a few days off, so we decided to take off to Delhi. I love furniture shopping in Delhi. The variety and styles available there are amazing. It makes me happy even to just walk through the classy displays in the stores. So this sounded like a great work-cum-vacation idea to me! I’m sure all Delhiites have their favourite furniture haunts there, and these two are mine.

MG Road:

Furniture Shopping in Delhi

Furniture shopping in Delhi is incomplete without a visit to MG Road. You can locate the shops there by the Metro pillar number opposite them. On this trip, we checked out every store from pillar number 115 to 137. There are 2 types of stores here. There are large swanky showrooms with gorgeous displays and trendy furniture. And smaller stores with little workshops selling traditional and vintage pieces. I rarely buy furniture in ‘sets’. I think a mixture of different types of furniture makes a room more interesting. So I loved visiting both types of stores.

My all-time fave store here is Wicker World. I am a little biased because that is where I got most of my existing living room furniture!

I love that the designs are contemporary, yet have an old world warmth and charm to them.

Another store I really liked was Bench Craft. Loved their carved screens and unusual furniture pieces. Their marble table tops with mother-of-pearl inlay were absolutely stunning!

My favourite ‘little’ store is one called Mody Woody Interiors. It is a family run store that deals in antiques and ornate handmade furniture.

Their workshop is a 5 minute walk away and you can see their huge range spread over their workshop and store. In addition to their large range of beds, chairs and tables, they also have jharokhas, columns, carved screens, doors, mirror frames and interesting antique pieces.

I spent a long time walking through the entire store… and then walking through it all over again. There is so much to choose from!

Sandhyaa there was really awesome to deal with. She easily understood design and was more than willing to take on customisations. For example, I liked this bench…

I thought the back would make a great headboard for Doll’s room since her room is jungle/animal themed. So that’s what we’re getting for Doll’s room… A daybed with that headboard!

Amar Colony:

At Amar Colony I feel like a child on a treasure hunt! This is what the shops in Amar Colony look like.

They are little shacks with furniture and accessories piled up onto each other. You have to rummage through it all to find your treasure. We spent hours hunting, and found loads of little treasures!

I loved the hand painted garden benches that could be fully customised.

We ordered a red bench with green hand painted tiles for the terrace.

This little shop was filled with all kinds of quaint accessories… I wanted to pick up each one of them!

I saw intricately carved screens and columns…

… and some exquisite furniture!

We searched, sifted and short listed and finally ordered our furniture… including these gorgeous cane chairs for the living room.

We met Gianiji, who sold us some lovely dining chairs. He also helped us to arrange a packer and transporter. He will collect the furniture from the various shops, pack them, put them all in a truck and ship them to Mumbai in another couple of weeks.

And at the end of this long day, we treated ourselves to delicious chole-bhature and lassi at Bawa Snacks just outside.

Furniture ordered and tummies filled… a four-days well spent. Mission ‘Furniture shopping in Delhi’ complete! Now awaiting the arrival of the furniture in Mumbai.

Wishing you all a very Happy Diwali!

      I can totally relate to that, Sameer. It’s really tempting to pick up almost everything you see there!
