Home decor and lifestyle store Varnam Craft Collective's, Double Road store is located inside an entire house; even their Jayanagar store is also inside a house. And we are loving how the store has been done up as well. A sizeable part of the collection is now dedicated to kiddie toys along with home decor and kitchen essentials. A room in the store is dedicated to pop-ups.
Their collection of Channapatna toys, home decor and kitchen essentials are what we are digging. Those cute fridge magnets, bottle openers and wine racks are what we are picking up. Oh, and their drop pendant-style ceiling lamps and the Goobe lamp we so love. Also, swapping your doorknobs for the charming wooden ones available here. With little animal motifs on them, from giraffes to mice, and of course, the goobe, these come in fun oranges, reds, greens and yellows. Plus they’ve got the more 3-D versions, with little birdies, bulls and piggy wall hooks too, perfect for the kiddo’s room.
Keeping in the theme of promoting local artisans of Channapatna, the store's sizeable inventory includes of apparel (including sarees), inspired by the region. Plus, the cool cotton shirts for men with quirky prints — from elephants to little piggies.
