On our quest to explore MG Road’s furniture markets, we stumbled upon Kasa Adbhuta. Located on the Mehrauli-Gurgaon road, you need to keep your eyes peeled to spot this well-camouflaged store. We’re so glad we did.
The smell of fresh woodwork and old, almost-forgotten antique pieces mix together and overwhelm you as you walk in. Like a treasure chest that exploded, the store is full of surprises, and we had to walk through it at least thrice to really get a feel for what they stock.
Although most of their craft is on the pricier side, we were able to locate a few items that would infuse lots of charm into your apartment or room. Here are our top five picks, but we recommend browsing through the store at leisure; you never know what you might find.
…on one of their really cool stools. There is a tortoise-one that makes for extra seating, and can also double as a bedside table. There’s a charpaai-style square stool in pop pinks and blues, as well as an intricate, beautiful red chair that skims above the floor. They also have a nice selection of bar stools, as well as lots of leather options.
Pick up a mini chest of drawers or a brightly-painted teeny, tiny cupboard. We spotted a quirky blue Pepsi-themed trunk that’s great for stashing away your off-season attire. If you’re looking to give your existing closet an update, we spotted some really cool cupboards as well.
We spotted lots of assorted home decor items that are perfect to customise your space; magazine holders to showcase the latest edition of Vogue, metal candle stands, key holders that can even double up as a clothes hook, and CD cases. The floor vases inspired by Naga craft took our breath away, and we also spotted Batik-style trays that you could also use as a mini-table, if you’re squeezed for space.
…but not enough space? We loved all the bookshelves at Adbhuta. They’re available in different sizes so you can easily make room for them, as well as come in different colours. They’ve got traditional wooden shelves as well as more contemporary options ; all perfect to show off your impressive collection.
If you’re sharing a smaller apartment, might we suggest picking a wooden divider embellished with colourful tiles? They also stock lots of wooden frames that would make for chic decorative pieces.
If you’re looking for something in particular, they’re happy to make to order.
