NEW DELHI: Sources Unlimited, which introduced high-end international furniture and lighting solutions in India, launched their flagship showroom in Delhi’s design hub on MG Road. From home theatres by German company Focal to cutlery by Christophle to Roberto Cavalli cushions and bed linens, and Baobab fragrances, products from more than 20 European countries are on display at the store.
Sakin Ahuja, Director, Operations, says, "Till last year, we were focusing only on furniture with one or two brands. But this year, we have introduced four furniture brands – Turri, Baxter, Giorgetti, and Rimadesio. Moreover, it’s not a walk-in store, one need to spend time to finalise important aspects for their homes."
The interiors of the multibrand showroom have been kept simple to allow focus on the furniture, lighting, accessories and wall coverings. "The space has been segregated into different zones to give a feel of walking through a beautifully designed home. The first half has Giorgetti furniture, lights from Preciosa and David Groppe, while the second section has Rimadesio, Baxter, and first floor has furniture from Turri, home theatre, bed linens, fragrances and ights," Sakin adds.
There are paintings by Spanish comapny Novacuadro, which works with 30 Spanish artists. At present, the store has on display colourful works by artist Santiagio Navaro, who has used human figures to create different shapes on canvas such as maze, alley and surfers. Here are a few highlights from the store:
