Funky, de­sign, wood, play, rein­vent, cre­ate— th­ese words wel­come you to De­sign Mon­kee’s web­site, sum­ming up the busi­ness mantra of this creative and fun fur­ni­ture line. Economics grad­u­ate Natalia Na­gree, who re­turned to In­dia from the US last year has turned to de­sign fur­ni­ture, and adding a touch of quirk and fun in her fam­ily’s decades- old fur­ni­ture brand The Liv­ing Room. Cre­atively named, ‘ the jig­saw’ is a func­tional, yet, at­trac­tive en­sem­ble of two cubes and two rec­tan­gles that can ei­ther stand in­de­pen­dently or stack up to make a stor­age unit. Set it up against a wall or as a room di­vider. It can dou­ble up as a book­shelf or a show­case to flaunt your cu­rios. If you want a touch of quirk in your care­fully up­hol­stered liv­ing room, then go for De­sign Mon­kee’s Sus­pend, a cof­fee ta­ble which is a glass top fit­ted on to a pair of well bal­anced at­trac­tively coloured arcs. There are sev­eral such prod­ucts in the Mon­kee’s col­lec­tion. Each piece is made- to- or­der, so while Na­gree doesn’t en­cour­age too much cus­tomi­sa­tion, you can re­quest her to let you tweak the colour to your choice. So, if you don’t fancy a ca­nary yel­low on that hexag­o­nal end ta­ble, go for a chili green or a royal blue. The prod­ucts are high on qual­ity and style. It’s an on­line store so pick from or­ange on their site and have it de­liv­ered to your doorstep. Price Rs 4,000 on­wards Go to De­sign­mon­kee. in
