India Today - - COVER STORY -

Vin­tage col­lectibles and re­fur­bished old fur­ni­ture share space with com­pact con­tem­po­rary pieces as cats sleep­ily watch cus­tomers walk in to browse the lat­est collection by own­ers Son­ali and Sha­laka Pin­gale. The duo is known for their taste­fully done up homes in Kore­gaon Park a s well as their sprawl­ing bun­ga­low-store. The iconic store is where old meets new; they source from tem­ples, old homes and havelis and re­store the fur­ni­ture into vin­tage pieces. “We are built on the con­cept of up­cy­cling and reusing prod­ucts,” says Sha­laka who shares her mother-in-law Son­ali’s love for de­sign and dé­cor and con­cep­tu­al­izes mod­ern pieces like bar cab­i­nets, side ta­bles and draw­ers in shades of blue, olive, red and dis­tressed white “Util­ity and looks should go to­gether and along with an­tique heavy pieces, we also need fur­ni­ture that is com­pact to fit into city apart­ments,” she says. by Aditi Pai
