I am thrilled to be part of the Good Homes Anniversary Issue 2014 and in no less than their coveted wishlist! Here is a feature on my Suzani inspired pieces – The Big Box, The Suzani Curvy chairs and the two Suzani High chairs. Thank you Meenakshi Shankar for a great piece.
This article was published a while back in March 2014 in ‘The Sunday Standard Magazine‘ but between school exams and year ending madness, I forgot to post it.

I am really late in posting these pictures. The kids are back in school after their winter break. Thick in the midst of school madness. The germ of this idea actually started six months ago during their summer vacations! Yes, I realize I am really LATE in posting these images 🙂 The two months of […]

Geometric patterns are a trend right now. I have been doing them for years 🙂 Thank you Malvika Singhal and Anupama Bijur for the inclusion of my work in your article Gorgeous Geometry in the July 2013 issue of Society Interiors.
