While SoBo, Bandra and Juhu are loaded with home decor stores, we were pleasantly surprised to find The ArtSpace in the lanes of Goregaon West. The huge store is full of curios, decor pieces, home accessories, jewellery, upholstery and even footwear, all made by artisans from all over India.
The store is just off MG Road, and you'll have to keep Maps on to locate it. But once you're here, you're gonna love it, because the store is bright, colourful and a haven of all things beautiful. We found stunning upholstery made from various fabrics - cotton, silk, Tassar - in a multitude of prints. You'll find products made using Khann - a traditional Maharashtrian fabric, and even cottons with Madhubani motifs on them. In fact, they've got matching upholstery options, and you can buy matching table runners, pillow cases, and even tray sets in whatever colours you choose! And, it's all completely customizable.
Paro's Artville will pretty much sort you out for gifting options, too. Need statement jewellery, Boho scarves, and/or giftable home decor? You'll definitely find what you need here. We spotted gorgeous necklaces (we're already planning outfits) and gorgeous Moroccan lamps that we're sure you'll want to buy for your home.
The range starts at a modest INR 150, with simple earrings and dainty tealight holders available at the price, and goes up to INR 5,000 for the huge Moroccan lamps. All in all, this is the reasonably priced yet classy home decor store you've been looking for in the suburbs.
The bonus? The ArtSpace doubles up as a gorgeous performance venue, and they organize loads of workshops, classes, karaoke sessions and even fun open mics, since it easily holds 35-40 people. They're happy to host pop-up restaurants in their cafe area, too.
Do say hello to all the rescued cats (who are all up for adoption, by the way), when you visit this store. So, when are you heading here?
