While the sun gods play hide and seek, we decided to celebrate Spring anyway. Our way of doing this is of course to take you through the lovely world of design and luxury. It’s a journey full of splashes of colour, styles and collectibles woven into various slugs, so what if the sky outside swings from a dreary grey to a dull blue.
While on this cheerful note, let me slip in a confession. The reason for our joie de vivre is not just the weather. Some of the most respected names in the world of interiors are a part of this editorial. Embark on a journey with us as we try to understand what makes Arjun Kanhai tick; the design exuberance of Farrago Designs; the opulent style of Brabbu; the energy of young guns like Hurley Marble and Bat Eye. We also get to know Slow Wood a tad better.
Not just that, we take a look into the assembly of the biggest and most celebrated design houses at iSaloni, Milan; and focus on the launch of two extremely talented and much celebrated artists from India in the UK. Treniq hosted the exhibition launch of Padmashree Krishn Kanhai and Arjun Kanhai at a pre-gala event for the Asian Business Award.
To add cherry to the icing on this star-studded month, is our pick of the month – D.R.D.P. Sofa by Slow Wood – luxury and comfort custom-styled to perfection, for home, office and lounge.
