Aakriti Ku­mar fo­cuses on cre­at­ing sculp­tural, func­tional and sus­tain­able fur­ni­ture us­ing dis­carded (or re­claimed) wood. “I use wood that has served it pro­pose, be in the form of ship­ping con­tain­ers, old floor­boards and wooden struc­tures of homes, or trees that have fallen in storms. Th­ese are then topped with a non toxic coat of oil or wax that en­hances the nat­u­ral grain of the wood,” says Ku­mar. She spe­cialises in var­i­ous types of fur­ni­ture rang­ing from ac­cent pieces, cof­fee ta­bles, wooden uphol­stery so­fas and chairs, to bars, out­door benches, light­ing, kids fur­ni­ture and de­signs for the bed­room.

NEW RANGE “The chil­dren's fur­ni­ture is a new range, which looks at the same idea of cre­at­ing toxic free fur­ni­ture in the form of desks, chairs, side ta­bles, toy stor­age chests and beds,” says Ku­mar, adding, “Tak­ing ge­om­e­try into con­sid­er­a­tion, the chil­dren's range fuses hexagons and pri­mary shapes in the de­signs.” PRICE `15,000 on­wards (kid’s range)
