Give Your Home A Makeover With Unique Decor From Attune In Khan Market
What Makes It Awesome
Ever dreamt of a home with personalised touches, splashes of colour and aesthetically pleasing? That’s exactly what Attune offers. Located in Khan Market, the designer studio houses everything that comes with a personal touch. “The USP is designer,” say the founders Poonam Bahl and Neeta Chait. Here, you find just about everything that you would like to decorate your home with. There are chairs, lamps, soap boxes, paintings, paper artworks, and more. Prices start from INR 50, going up to a few lakhs. The main criterion for selection is proper training in design/art. The idea is to have 'made in India' products and give room for talent to flourish, says the duo. Walking around I saw some unique works such as thread work screens by Gunjan Arora, horse paintings by Sujata Dev and handcrafted boxes by Cocobird. Luckily, they were present too and I got to know about their work.
What's My Pro Tip?
Gunjan trained in fashion designing from NIFT and has his own garment business. He has now patented this technique of intricate thread work. He sources threads from all over treats them and then takes many weeks to make the screens. Sujata, trained from the JJ School of Art, Mumbai, fell in love with horses while riding one. Since then, she has been painting them and has held some exhibitions too. As her husband was in the army, she has travelled across the country and is inspired by nature. Of course, there are many other subjects too in her works, but horses are her passion. Her horses have an earthy feel of ochre being an important shade. Horses mean freedom for her. One day, she hopes to paint pieces of the sky for some miniatures. Cocobird is run by two enthusiastic women, who take out hours searching for the right picture, crafting a box and then filling it with festive gifts. For instance, they had a special one for Diwali, another one on mulled wine for Christmas. And there are cutlery boxes too. There were belts, cufflinks, dog collars and leashes from the House of Arazi. This is run by a pilot and the strong influence of Punjab and royal times is so evident in these accessories.
What I personally couldn’t get my eyes off were wooden stools with intricately carved out animals and birds such as tiger, peacock, owl. This is called 'pyrography' or the art of burning wood. There is so much more that I haven’t put here, but one can always go and have a look. All the artists are open to commissioned work too.
