Shady Ideas, Andheri

If you're an Andheri-ite, chances are, you must have passed by a stretch of light shops in DN Nagar. While most of them have their offerings on display, we chose to walk into a store that looked quite ordinary from the outside, but super colorful from the inside. Shady Ideas is the mecca of the most colorful quirky lamps and lights you will ever see. This brand specializes in curating lights with recycled acrylic, that's fused with handmade paper. We saw a piano lamp that we knew we'd come back to buy.
