QUIRKO

India Today - - SIMPLY BANGALORE -

The wack­i­est ideas come to life at Quirko, an on­line store that re­tails fun home fur­nish­ings and more. As the name sug­gests, you’re bound to find some­thing quirky here. Um­brel­las with newsprint de­sign or shaped like a sword and phone re­ceivers from ages past are hardly out of the or­di­nary here. Kaveri Medappa, who es­tab­lished Quirko, is a qual­i­fied char­tered ac­coun­tant who was work­ing as a cor­po­rate be­fore de­cid­ing to launch this ex­cit­ing ven­ture. Quirko now stocks the works of about 50 artists and ships pur­chases across In­dia and Sin­ga­pore. What started as a por­tal to buy things for the house has now ex­panded to in­clude other life­style prod­ucts and a spe­cial kids’ line too. “I’m most ex­cited when show­cas­ing works by lesser known artists and de­sign­ers,” says Medappa. Some of Quirko’s most note­wor­thy mer­chan­dise in­clude their colourful cof­fee mugs, coast­ers with silly mes­sages on them, lap­top bags and funky clocks.

Rs 299 for coast­ers to Rs 1700 for a wall clock; quirkoshop. com
