Sus­sanne Khan’s The Char­coal Pro­ject store in Mum­bai’s And­heri west has an in­ter­est­ing col­lec­tion of art and ar­ti­facts. A gi­ant wooden gal­lop­ing horse al­most touches the ceil­ing, a caged bird, some eye catch­ing time­pieces, lim­ited edi­tion photo art pieces, mir­rors and wall in­stal­la­tions have all been de­signed by her.

A team of 15 young de­sign­ers work with her and are kept con­stantly busy as Khan re­mains the go- to de­signer for celebrity homes in Bol­ly­wood and for projects like YOO in Pune and The Oberoi in Mum­bai.

As you walk up to her den in the Store, you can’t miss tne in­scrip­tion on each step: Dare to live your own way, Fly like an ea­gle, Ex­plore the im­pos­si­ble, Stare your fears in the face, In­hale en­ergy ex­hale hate…

Nam­rata Kohli chats with Khan on in­te­ri­ors, themes and more.
