On the Good Homes wishlist: #85

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.   

The Sunday Standard Magazine – Mar 2014

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. Actually, I never got around to reading it. Now with school holidays, I have some time to breathe… Thank you Pallavi Rebbapragada for the wonderful write up. […]

Of coasters and cushions

Over the years I have had a million ideas for collections and merchandize each with a distinct flavor of ArtByAarohi. But somehow it never really panned out, between kids/home/ husband traveling and of course external dependencies. They did however all come together during ‘The Poonchh Collection’.
