The space has mock-ups of living room, bedroom, kid’s room, dining and more for customers to interact with.

Mock-ups of master and kids’ bedrooms hold space between the entrance foyer and the landscaped area. There are two beds that subsume the season’s furnishing collection for the master as well as kids’ bedrooms. The wall behind the bedroom mock-up is an interpretation of the decorative walls and facades of the royal palaces of Jaipur. The Mughal-inspired landscaped area or bagheecha (garden) has a fountain and 12 antique columns sourced from Jodhpur of varying styles stretching across the space. Blue and aqua colour palettes juxtaposed with subtle serenity capture the essence of European architecture. The fountain spouts are carved out of Jaisalmer yellow stone and blue lapis stone. Birds made of fibre and clay add life to this space. The lounge mock-up facing the fountain has a sofa designed in-house, and coffee tables and a rectangular table with intricate bone inlay work sourced from Jodhpur. Leading from the lounge is the dining mock-up with eight www.cwinteriors.in

custom-made dining chairs hand-woven by skilled local artisans. The area is used to display their collection of tableware. Traditional arayash (fresco painting) is done by master craftsmen on one of the walls, while the other with the Bagh-E-Fiza wallpaper from Good Earth has a display of photographs of the client’s factory as a token of gratitude to the workers and their skill. The shamiana ceiling provides sublime luxury that revels in the romance of the past. Arayash work, painted metal plates, Moroccan art patterns, framed royal paintings and other elements diligently use traditional designs in vibrant hues. The space beams of a lost glory, encased in relevant and contemporary forms.
