Pick Up Fabindia-Style Shades & Moroccan Lamps From This Store Near New Market

Shortcut

Not only does a vintage lamp prove that a grown-up lives in an apartment, one single lampshade can transform your room.

Even Lamps Need Clothes

The name of the shop is the same as the owner’s — B {Miyaz} Karim. He manufactures, sells and supplies lamps. I have been to his shop several times. Karimbhai doesn’t stick to a price — he has a flexible and informal pricing strategy, depending on who’s asking. The selection here ranges from minimally modern pieces to elaborate, expressive, and even some rather artsy illumination.

In the evenings, you can spot the shop from miles away in the middle of the crowded pavement opposite New Market. The colourful lampshades that smolder in a spectrum of shades look warm and welcoming. The very Middle-Eastern shades in multi-colored mosaic really stand out. They go for anywhere from INR 650 to 1,600, depending on the size. The Moroccan lasercut lamps are another bog draw — the big ones are for INR 2,500 and medium ones go for INR 1,600.

Shades Of Style

The store is well-stocked and can satisfy nearly every imaginable style. I loved the charming {and rather Victorian} table lamp dressed in a vintage-style fabric {INR 650} — it will add a retro and romantic touch to your room. The  standing shades wrapped in cotton prints were so Fabindia, but at less than half the Fabindia price — INR 350 {fittings extra} to INR 1,200, depending on size. You can also pick up a wooden or ceramic stand separately and mix and match lampshades from Karim or from elsewhere {from INR 1,700 onwards}.

Anything Else?

You can get a custom-made lampshade if you give him a design and fabric — it would cost nearly the same and will be finished in a week. The store accepts only Paytm or cash.
