This & That Feature - India Today
From coding and designing simulators as a reservoir engineer to making handcrafted and hand woven products, Niyati Shah started Quilt Avenue in March this year to offer homeowners a mix of modern, earthy and coastal décor. Against any form of animal cruelty, she only uses renewable materials such as bamboo, sea grass, teak wood, cracked glass, resin, and recycled polymer and her line includes laundry and utility baskets, planter and picnic baskets, cutlery stands, trays, and statement pieces such as center table bowls, candle stands and vases.
Her products have an old world charm while adding a Scandinavian tone to your living space. The materials used by her can be creatively woven into patterns and natural pieces of wood are placed in moulds with pieces of broken glass and resin to take form. She has made vases, salad bowls and
candle stands using this concept that gives a glossy and modern look to the products. Her new collection is all about adding character to the interiors; it has coordinated sets such as a taupe laundry basket and organizer trays to place your folded napkins and daily essentials.
PRICE Rs.600 to Rs.20,000
