Fendi, Calvin Klein, Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta...celebrities have long worn their clothes. For a while now their houses have been wearing their look too. Wayne Clark said it. “Where once people thought nothing of owning a luxe suit,” the Canadian couturier says, “they are now more likely to purchase a custom-made chair, something as equally reflective of their own personalities. As dressing has become more casual, style is increasingly all about the home.” And fashion’s finest in India has only vigorous nods to offer in agreement.

Once where it would take six years for the style on the runway to reach a furniture showroom, the margin has narrowed down—design becoming a single universe. Uber chic home decor—from luxury pillows, bold rugs, vint­age-style duvets, durries, bolsters to affor­dable tableware—is the new style statement, and the country’s top des­igners are rising magnificently to the occasion. They are designing entire homes, incorporating Indian sensibility and international trends to produce bespoke residences.
