Shortcut

Saanchi Antiques and Treasures, in Langford Town, is pretty-as-a-picture and showcases a curated collection of vintage furniture and knick-knacks.

Glimpses of Grandeur

Started about a year ago, Saanchi is a housed at a charming three-storied building that reeks of old-world beauty. The store largely specialises in colonial furniture and antiquities. And we love that their handpicked collection is spruced up and that the display is well thought out {a rarity in antique stores}. On the ground floor, they have recreated the living room space with massive opium beds made with Burma wood and Pancharangi {yes, they feature five colours} chandeliers made exclusively for the sultans of yore. The adjoining dining space has elegant dining sets and sideboards with detailed work. At the back, there’s a kitchen-like setup {many of the offerings here are budget-friendly} where you can stock up on enamelware, old-world butter churners, and spice boxes {that can easily be used to hoard your jewellery.

Up the stairs and you’ll find gramophones that still work, heavy beds, bar cabinets and stools. They have an entire section on lamps including railways lamps and the petrol variety {these have been upscaled to electric ones now}. The third floor has a corner called Attic Shrugged where you can snap up knick knacks like vintage toys and hand painted lamp shades.

Vintage Ville

Saanchi is the result of owner – Parwathi Mirlay’s 25-year long passion for antiques. And she is keen to share the love. So you can swing by for interactive sessions with collectors and antique lovers. These are free and all you need to do is be a part of their mailing list to get invited. They also have a small museum where Mirlay displays a few prized treasures from her personal collection. These include camphor chests {a favourite of hers}, miniature books, and chairs from a barber shop and a dentist from long, long ago.

If you are building your dream home, you can also source doors, pillars, and furniture for your place from their warehouse, called Building Blocks, in Jigani. They display a sample catalogue in the basement at Saanchi.
