Mamta Gupta said, “We went back in history to look over millennia of Hindu, Islamic, and vernacular inventions and to seek out common themes which can be blended well with the modern minimal interiors. Thus the concept of a congruous arched display window in the façade surfaced as our compelling theme. This can be correlated to the old monuments which have repeating themes. The store interiors complement and softly serenade with the narrative of the facade. The walls are pristine white, providing a clean canvas for our creations to express themselves. Amidst this simplicity, a graceful tree stands, its branches and foliage extending through the ceiling into the sky”. In the words of Ms. Vidhi Gupta, “ It’s like the store came to life around the tree, and its personality became one with the tree- organic and real. Arch-shaped niches carved into the walls in one of the corners, create subtle alcoves that cradle our best sellers… music playlists are those curated personally by the team, Mamta and me.”
