Urban Ladder

Though Urban Ladder specialises in functional and well-designed furniture, their selection of table lamps will light up any living room. Our favourites are their Tripod lamps, which can lend a smashing statement to any corner of your home. Looking for a funky lamp for your study or work table? Then Urban Ladder’s selection of really well-designed (think minimal) study lamps will add that extra dimension to your work space. Our favourite: The Walley lamp that also multitasks as a pen stand. We have also bookmarked their range of cushions and cushion covers, table mats and sheer curtains for future reference.

You can also have your pick delivered as is, sans frame, and it’ll come to you in a strong (we’ve tried and tested it), eco-friendly and re-usable carrying case.

Looking to add a bit of whimsy to your space? Then Propshop24’s selection of cheery dream catchers should do the trick.

Varnam

Animals like Goobe (owl), Kuruvi (sparrow), Oinkston (pig) and Jumbo (elephant) serve as a theme for the products here. So, from owls and sparrows on their night lamps and drop lamps (their Goobe Night Lamp is a must-buy!) to cute photo stands in the shape of a pig and Jimbo Jumbos napkin rings, there’s enough here to delight you. While their pen stands and stationery holders are just perfect to brighten up your workspace, we particularly love their kitchen and dining range. Think a crocodile head for a wine holder, Oinkstons salt and pepper shakers and Giraffe Salad Mixer Sets. You’ll also find platters, candle stands, cookie jars and cutesy coasters to stock up on. If you’re looking to jazz up your home, pick from their curtains, carpets and cushion covers.

Olie’s floor, pendant, wall and table lamps are all stunners.

India Circus

One of the early brands to jump on the home decor bandwagon, India Circus’s designs are of course all about the Indian aesthetic. But their collection of wall art (very statement), cushion covers, key holders, doormats, clocks, photo frames, lamps, vases and more, don’t compromise on the quirk factor either. We’d also recommend their section dedicated to lush and rich wallpapers (India Shining!)

Price: INR 500 upwards

The Yellow Dwelling

Now if you're looking to revamp your space, it's also important to start with the basics, and yes, we mean home linen. Be it cushions and curtains, to tablecloths, table runners and bed spreads to, The Yellow Dwelling, a  Bangalore based brand has it all in bright pops of colour, plenty of quirk and modern prints. We're talking refreshing teals, peaches and rose golds in contemporary chevron patterns, Aztec prints and more! Made with only soft cotton and natural fabric, this brand knows how to take care of your skin too! Once you're done shopping for linens, we suggest you turn you attention to their quirky home decor like the Acacia wood hand turned bowl candle (great for gifting) and the carved wood and asymmetry metal lamp shade.

Suite Number Eight

This one's a whimsical brand that has home decor and dinnerware that we think is aesthetic AF. Definitely shop for the bright yet somewhat pastel coloured pomegranate vases or the blush and ivory pomegranate bowls to store your beauty essentials. Fruit not your thing? They got pout lip trinket dishes, and regal looking cake stands and tea sets that the Queen of England will surely approve of!  

Price: INR 850 upwards

Eco-friendly peeps, we've found you Engrave, a brand that is all about fair trade and nature love. You'd be overjoyed to know that they work with local artisans and craftpersons to create stunning home decor in the for of ashtrays, storage boxes, clocks, lamps, furnishings and furniture (we can vouch on the quality!). We especially like their "designer dispenser", a warli art rustic wooden tissue box and an eye-catchy pastel rose and teal chest of drawers, that's compact as it is beautiful!
