Inhabit Launches its First Store in Delhi
With her keenly anti-minimal and passionately original approach to design, Neeta Kumar, Furniture and Interior Designer, and Founder of Inhabit, has charted her own unique path in the interior decor world. The stamp of approval she has received for her highly individualistic style through the success of Inhabit’s Hyderabad outlet, has encouraged her to launch her first store in the capital.

Located at the Delhi Design District on Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road, the 7,000 sqft store showcases her Bespoke Series and the Studio Collection in an enchanting environment.

The store follows designer Neeta Kumar’s signature style of classic values woven into contemporary mores with a sprinkling of design influences from around the world to evoke a quaintly grand vibe. Carved wooden pillars, colorful carved life-sized candle stands, intricate iron screens, cane screens with arched tops, embellished walls, ornate floor lamps, all create a charming otherworldly environment.

While on one end you see highly embellished walls full of details, on the other hand, you have exposed brick walls. Neeta thus cleverly juxtaposes a richly crafted look with the shabby chic. The neutral flooring plays host to exquisitely crafted eclectic pieces of furniture that make an eye-catching spectacle.

“The most thrilling part of designing this Bespoke luxury series was to keep it timeless. The quest was to attain detail and uncompromising quality using a vast material palette. It took almost 12-14 months to generate this line of luxury designs,” says Neeta Kumar.

The furniture pieces made of reclaimed teak wood are a blend of classic characteristics and silhouettes with modern sensibilities across styles and moods. The vision was to sustain “Make in India” while giving a tough competition to the mindset of importing furniture.

The design philosophy is shaped by the designer’s experience of the world’s finest architectural styles – be it the glorious confluence of Islamic structure with Hindu ornamentation in the Charminar, the austere grace of the Gothic quatrefoil, or the mesmerizing vectors of Art Deco.

While the designs traverse diverse genres and styles, they remain a seamless blend of the principles of ergonomics, functionality and selective use of wood, fabrics and finishes.
