The Baro pop up will remain at The Purple Turtles store till mid September. Srila, herself, will be present on August 26 for 5 days. To catch the glorious lady who brings her individualistic and eclectic style, furniture, aesthetic, vibrancy and colour to Bengaluru, along with The Purple Turtles founder- Mr. Radeesh Shetty, visit The Purple Turtles store, to know more.
In a city such as Mumbai- spoilt for choice but starved for originality, BARO is a breath of fresh air. Founded in 2017 by Siddharth Sirohi and Srila Chatterjee, the décor store in Sun Mill, Lower Parel, is a space for sharpened aesthetics and creative expression. Home to handcrafted furniture, unique lights, screen-printed cotton fabrics, delightful décor and indigenous art, BARO is more than the sum of its parts. It is filled with inspiration from near and far and embodies a philosophy that elevates beauty and design to a predominant position in every aspect of life.
Bringing colour and quirk to classic and timeless design, BARO achieves a rare aesthetic balance. Its furniture collection consists mainly of Siddharth Sirohi’s designs; heavily influenced by the timeless mid-century modern movement. Alongside Sirohi’s designs, BARO stocks carefully curated pieces of vintage furniture — painstakingly restored to an exquisite new form. “Whether original pieces or restored classics, BARO furniture is a nod to the cherished wabi-sabi aesthetic. The accent is on the essence of a thing, with all its charms and flaws, rather than cosmetic appeal. When an old piece is restored, it is not to hide its natural ageing, but to celebrate it.
Complementing the furniture, BARO offers up a collection of original and hand-picked vintage lights, collected from homes and theatres around India; besides unique new creations that are handmade in the BARO workshop and can be customised on request.
In addition, BARO brings to Mumbai the famed screen-printed cotton fabrics of Anokhi from Russell Street in Kolkata. As exclusive stockists for the brand with its 45-year legacy of excellence, BARO offers the option to customise fabrics for colour and also carries their special blinds, bed covers and cushions.
Rounding off the BARO offering, the store is chock-full of delightful home décor pieces from a carefully curated selection of the finest Indian brands. Thought provoking art, that celebrates and elevates tradition, dots the store. the works are sourced from artists with an age-old legacy, with the intention of working equitably with the larger local community to include Indian heritage in the BARO journey that hopes to make all spaces unique, comfortable and timelessly appealing
Sharing Baro’s ethos- The Purple Turtles, a Bangalore based store was opened in 2009, when the need for out-of-he-ordinary decor was recognised for the contemporary indian home. it has since bridged the gap with good design and has a varied display of interesting furniture and home accents. While maintaining its commitment to design and quality craftsmanship.
