Run by Srivant and Devina More, this store located on 6, Russell Street immediately stands out. The furniture found here is a range of ‘kaleidoscopic mix of eras, cultures and styles’. These are personally curated pieces, and Kaji makes it a point to launch a few collections a year to showcase themed furniture and décor at their outlet. The themes are also extremely diverse, starting from Russian-inspired décor and home furnishings, to pirates and cartography.

Cane and ethnic furniture lovesr should all head to the Dakshinapan complex in Dhakuria. It is filled with cane furniture shops on all floors. From chairs to swings, to full sofa sets, there is a lot of variety here. These can be found in bulk outside the state emporium stores of Odisha and Tripura. Outside the Rajasthan Emporium, you can find lovely handpainted foldable chairs and ottomans with miniature paintings on them. Things are more affordable here than at other places.

Gopal Nagar Lane

Near Judges Court Road, there is an entire footpath filled with dealers of old, refurbished antique furniture starting from around INR 2,000. You can get four poster beds with intricately carved woodwork, massive mirrors with wooden frames and old glass lamps. If you’re lucky you might find one of their antique bars which looks like it’s straight out of some 1920s Hollywood film. We love to visit this place to pick up vintage clocks, desks. Furniture from here can add a lot of character to any home. Most of the furniture here is refurbished with recycled teak and mahogany which is a bonus.
