Home decor, but make it fashion? These designers have heard our plea. If you’re looking to dress your home with the signature flair of your favourite Indian fashion labels, then bookmark these fashion-meets-decor collections—there is something for your walls, something for your floors and for your dinner table too.

Sabyasachi and Thomas Goode

It’s safe to say that this bridal couturier knows a thing (or many) about coveted collaborations. Case in point? His collaboration with Mayfair’s Thomas Goode & Co that boasts a 200-year-old legacy as well as the patronage Queen Elizabeth II. Mukherjee’s collection for them is a bespoke tableware and dinner service range for the bridal trousseau. The designs borrow from Kolkata’s tropical flora and fauna (as well as Mukherjee’s signature tiger motif), all hand rendered by 43 artists from the Sabyasachi Art Foundation.

Ritu Kumar Home

The doyenne of Indian fashion launched her dedicated home line in 2019 to let you add a touch of Indian textiles, prints and motifs to your home. Be it their ikat embroidered cushion covers, vintage Mughal print dinnerware, marble trinket trays or candle gift sets; every design is a contemporary reimagination of traditional crafts. 

Abraham & Thakore

This textile-focused brand launched their homeware almost three decades ago with a line of
bed linen, bed accessories and lounge wear for stores like The Conran Shop, Selfridges, Liberty London and Harrods. They continue to draw on traditional Indian crafts and techniques—think handwoven fabrics embellished with embroidery, tie-dye and kantha—and use it in contemporary ways on their A&T home accessories like eye masks, tea cosies and hot water bottle covers available at the store. The A&T linen line though is only made-to-order now.

Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla X Lodha Luxury 

If it’s a larger-than-life aesthetic you are seeking, count on this maximalist designer duo to deliver. Their couture is akin to artworks, but so are their bespoke furniture and tapestries. Most recently, they collaborated with Lodha Luxury to dress a 76th-floor residence at Lodha Ciel in Mumbai with their signature flair. The result was decor made and sourced locally, be it the crystal chandeliers, the abla work wall art or the antique accent pieces from across India.

Savio Jon

On your next escape to Goa, make a beeline for Savio Jon’s boutique in Bardez, that apart from his breezy resort wear, also stocks an edit of objets d'art like glassware, candle stands, lamp shades, wooden salad bowls and indigo plates personally curated by the designer. These have been collected over the years from markets around the world. Jon is also working on a soon-to-launch limited edition in-house line of accent tableware and mosquito nets that will reflect the label’s laid-back vintage vibe.

Cocoon Fine Rugs x Falguni Shane Peacock 

The husband-wife designer duo’s foray into interior design is a collection of wool and handspun silk rugs in collaboration with Cocoon Fine Rugs; handmade over eight months at the latter’s workshop in Jaipur. The line is called ‘Meraki’, which is Greek for ‘to do something with soul, creativity and love; and to put something of yourself in your work’. Fittingly enough, the rugs are scribbled with lines like ‘I love you always’ and ‘Love you to the moon and back’. 

Payal Singhal X Marshalls India

Have a penchant for Payal Singhal’s catchy prints? Your walls will love them too. The designer who boasts several accessory collaborations, decided to join forces with Marshalls India for her first home design collection. What you have is a line of wallpapers in Singhal’s most popular prints from her two-decade archive. 

Shivan & Narresh 

Your invite to their uber-stylish Monday picnics or sit-down dinners may have gotten lost in the mail, but at least you can recreate them in your backyard with the duo’s homeware line—there’s table linen in their signature prints, bone china crockery, silver cutlery, stemware and table accents. The resort rugs can brighten up the dullest of spaces, while the collaboration with Bent Chair includes a capsule range of urban furniture with influences from their Patu Series.

Valaya Home

JJ Valaya introduced his home label back in 1996 with decorative pillows, hand embroidered tapestries and even furniture; which will now be available at the World of Valaya flagship store slated to launch later this year. But for an instant touch of the designer’s aesthetic to your home, simply turn to his collection of Mughal miniature art-inspired tiles for FCML or his limited range of Persia-inspired carpets for Cocoon Fine Rugs.
