Magnolia the new furniture and home accessories store opens its doors in Mumbai. Maulika Gandhi, the owner is a lawyer turned store owner. In a complete leap of faith she has opened, Magnolia. Tucked away in a lane at Worli Naka is this expansive store. You can see different stylized room sets. Set up with ready to buy accessories. Below are the pieces that piqued our interest. The beds start at around Rs. 50,000, dining tables are Rs 30,000 onwards and stools around Rs 6,000 onwards.
The hand painted red vintage storage chest is our favourite. With the adorable red casual chair. The giant metal vessel converted into a coffee table is different. Would be great if you had an ethnic look going in the house. The colorful stools are lovely. Not sure if it particularly goes well in this picture. Would probably place it with more modern playful pieces. Perfect for an outdoor bar or in a kids room. A DIY we love is to paint old crates. Create matching stools by painting the crates in bright colors. Use them for a variety of purposes. Grow plants, store stuff, fix them on the wall as niches, and lots more!
The upcycled sewing machine turned side table is interesting. A good twist to this piece would be a fun change in color in the sewing machine parts. It would uplift it more. The white bench in the picture below reminds us of the one in Notting Hill. Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts in the end scene. Instead of white floral cushions, solid colors would look more impressive. Black and white or blue and white striped cushions would also look fabulous. What would you place on the bench?
