Aside from being Delhi’s favourite haunt to grab some awesome food, have a fun drunken night, and make a nice day out of a shopping trip, Khan Market houses an old building named Lok Nayak Bhawan, which, if you’ve stayed in Delhi long enough, you may have entered at least once, either to buy some lights for your home, make a trip to Sunflower {the salon headed by some really cute, old ladies}, or to grab some booze from the theka. 

If it’s the former, we’ve done some homework for you: An extensive trip later, we’ve shortlisted 10 shops that you must check out if you’re looking for some interesting light fixtures to spruce up your house. Put on your shades; lots of brightness coming your way.

Bohemia Lite

IMG_7454With two small shops to themselves in Lok Nayak Bhawan, Bohemia Lite’s got some very cool lights if you’re looking to give an industrial feel to your home interiors. Our hearts were set on the single bulb pendants and the geometrical light installations, which we feel are priced quite reasonably.

Where: K-8 & K-14, Lok Nayak Bhawan

Price: Starting at INR 500

Where: 45, Lok Nayak Bhawan

Price: Starting at INR 10,000 for marble lamps

Chanchal Lights

IMG_7555Scouting for cane ceiling lamps to give your room a quintessential Indian look? You’ll find them in a variety of shapes and sizes here. We even love the ceramic lamp shades they’ve got in single shades, like moss green, turquoise, and beige.

PS: If good behaviour is a considerable part of your shopping experience, then you might like to know that the owner of this shop is very friendly and sweet.

Where: 43, Lok Nayak Bhawan

Price: Starting at INR 650

Ankur Lighting

IMG_7497One of the more expensive shops in the area, you might want to visit Ankur Lighting if you like lots of crystals and bling in your décor. We, on the other hand, were completely blown away by the lights for kids’ rooms that seem to have been inspired from model airplanes—one of these even has a fan that rotates when the light is switched on!

Where: 17, Lok Nayak Bhawan

Price: Starting at INR 5,000 for kiddie lights; INR 10,000 for regular lights

Contact: +91 9811556858
