Right on the heels of the India Art Fair comes India Design ID. India’s definitive and first-of-its kind design week is celebrating its third year with a whole slew of panel discussions, brand names, and the latest in design and decoration trends. The fair itself comprises a three day exhibition over 8,000 sq meters, bridging the gap between consumer and creator. The exhibit will be open to trade and general visitors to view the finest in home decoration and design. High end brands and designers will present collections through individual booths, trend galleries and installations. Plus you can check out the up and coming trends for contemporary craft and emerging young designers.
