Doing up your new nest or are you giving your casa a new makeover? When it's furniture you are looking for, and not the usual sort, of course, you must check out Home & Us in Gurusaday Road.
It dates back to that time when Kolkata wasn't mushrooming lifestyle decor stores in every part of the city. Go down the quiet stretch of Gurusaday Road and you'll come across the spacious furniture store, Home & Us, whose classy minimalist store front would want you to take a peek inside. It has got none of the glitzy neon lights on the facade to beckon you, but once inside you will surely fall in love with the furniture inside.
Started years ago by Meena Bansal, Home & Us specialises in bespoke furniture. Everything inside the store is made of wood, and only the varieties of teak and mahogany are used to carve them. Now run by Meena's daughter, Disha, the store still exudes that homely comfortable vibe where you can go and talk to her to find a 'my-kinda' furniture. Tell Disha about your nest or show her pictures and she will help you with furniture that will complement your casa. Period pieces to contemporary ones - Home & Us will customise your fixtures just the way you want it.
Best known for their European designs and finish (well polished, delicately carved furniture with often gold highlights), Home & Us has statement chaises, antique benches and consoles to minimal tables, four poster beds, ottomans, upholstered sofas and even mirrors. Prices start at INR 4,000.
