If you’re planning a trip to the Pink City anytime soon, pencil in an appointment at the city’s most talked-about address. Hèrmosa Design Studio is a high-end home decor and furnishing store, conceptualised by a dynamic brother-sister duo, Pranjal and Mudgha Agrawal. “While Jaipur has always been a hub for traditional design and furniture, we wanted to create a contemporary Jaipur aesthetic, using traditional elements. People in India are now wanting this sense of luxury in their homes. There is an aspirational value.” Mugdha tells us.
Hèrmosa Design Studio is located in a gorgeous three level space, where furniture is displayed in different showcase rooms. The overall aesthetic is resolutely contemporary and design-focused, with understated elements of Jaipur — pink elements, lattice motifs and even reinterpreted jharokhas. The idea, Pranjal says, is to increase design awareness in India and to eventually grow in regions across India, with less access to design.
In the news recently is Hèrmosa’s collaboration with leading fashion designer Nikhil Thampi. The designer has designed a capsule collection of furniture for the studio, and pieces range from suede couches and slick console tables to a statement bar cabinet and innovative table, with single seaters. “This is my first furniture collection and I think that Hermosa Design Studio is a perfect match. There is this whole element of glamour, modernity and functionality in my clothes, which can translate into the furniture as well,” Thampi says. hermosastudio.in
