The Second Wind in Gurgaon is breathing fresh life into old furniture and home decor that we can’t discard but can’t use either. This apart, the design studio is also into full-fledged interior design. The best part: they’re equally good at both.
Part whimsy, part practical, this novel venture is restoring our faith in old-fashioned up-cycling. Inspired by their super resourceful grandmother who magically turned sarees into blankets, tattered tees into rugs and plastic bags into flowers, Abhinav and Ira decided to roll up their jeans and have a field day themselves.
Their poison of choice? Home decor. They have an overworked warehouse in Sector 53, Gurgaon where they turn headboards into benches and landfill tyres into poufs. The transformations are indeed spectacular – we still can’t get over a certain crib-turned-bookshelf. You can either order these beauties online or hit them up for custom orders.
Everything on their page defines happiness in a way that’s very intangible. Think of it like the ultimate comfort food or a comic book marathon. Teal-coloured side tables carved out of reclaimed wood reassure us that no trees died during our home makeover and the whole up-cycling spin in general is a quality we adore.
