For over 40 years, Innovations, on St Johns Road, has been kitting out old Bangalore homes with everything from blinds and curtains to wall paper and carpets. While this showroom can seem like its rather expensive, it’s really not. They just want you to have a posh experience no matter how cheap or luxe the merchandise you buy. If you know exactly what you want, let the helpful staff know, and they’ll begin rolling out designs (traditional, geometric, floral, abstract) and fabrics (silk, cotton, linen, lace or synthetic) to match your needs.
Answer a few simple questions like favourite colours, preferred patterns, or ideal designs, and these guys will go all out in trying to get you’re the perfect curtains or even upholstery for the room you want to do up. They will even make sure that you curtains, furniture upholstery and bathroom furnishing match, but are just that bit different. For the moment, they have a collection of really delicate and pretty curtains and sheer drapes, perfect for summer. If you’d rather a darker Downton Abbey look, rich red, purples, golden and deep greens will have you sorted.
Going beyond just the drapes, head here if you want to replenish the linen cupboard. Be it ethnic, contemporary or pretty florals, they have bed sheets and pillow cases for every season, mood and home. And towels, in case you’re a Virgo (guilty as charged!) and it all needs to be colour-coded. And don’t just stick to the bedroom folks! Go on and show off your culinary skills and invite guests home. Of course, you’ll need to have table linen to complement your cooking – so perhaps table runners, napkins and mats will do the trick.
