India Design 2013 hosted by Asian Paints in New Delhi had me very excited, simply by the speakers and the designers taking part. The event had Exhibits for design, new products & techonology. The symposium for seminars and ineractions with some of the best names in the industry. My idols Li Edelkoort & Marcel Wanders, speakers at the symposium, had me jumping like a star struck kid. Will talk about that and more in the next post. But for starters we have the interesting room sets at the exhibits. 

Apartment 9 

Apartment 9 had an intriguing concept. A peeping tom peering into the luxurious home of 2 stylish woman. A den with a cozy fireplace, the cute puppy curled up and the woman lounging in their luxe surroundings. Styled as a posh country home with an aura of wood spice.

Nur had beautiful printed home accessories and furnishings. Colour, embroidery and fun speckled from every corner. The wall behind the bed had padded fabric with painted frames bordering around. A different alternative to traditional frames. You can see my friend Natalia in the background, tempted to pick up a few things. 
Good Earth
Good Earth Chevron Chairs

Good Earth as always was a stunner. Keeping to their design philosophy, the entire composition is brilliantly executed. A little like a honeymoon suite courtesy the roses draping around the bed. Though going completely gaga over the black and white chevron chairs mixed with a floral pattern. Venetian mirrors with antique table lamps on side tables. Nicely combined!

InV Home

InV Home went for a more summer casual chic look. With its hues of blues, greens and oranges. Highlighting the bed with a lotus pattern. Wish the creativity level was higher over here. But all in all it looked like a happy and clean space to be in.

The Sunil Sethi Alliance & Paola Navone put together a Concept Pavillion and showcased 3 color concepts. The blood red against the solids black and silver chairs offset by a pair of animal print chairs. My personal favourite being the royal blue together with the black and white fabrics. Which appealed to you the most?
Curving the walls around the space instead of creating the usual linear rooms was a good idea. The quilted walls add warmth and create a tactile environment. Focusing on the use of the right colors and the impact created is important.
