Since couch season is upon us, it would do well for shrinks and Mr Johar to pay a visit to Magari, where a leather sofa that looks like liquid burgundy – a glass of red wine glistening in the summer sun – awaits. Suitable for both, mighty and mortal bottoms, this couch will be on the top of your wish list at this new furniture and home store in Indiranagar.

The aesthetic is retro-meets-2016, resulting in furniture that at once reminds us of things our grandparents inherited and things they complain about.

The aesthetic is retro-meets-2016, resulting in furniture that at once reminds us of things our grandparents inherited and things they complain about. A modern-day faux fur throw for instance, goes to the opera on the arm of a 1960s velvet sofa, and an entry-way console reminds us of an LP player. For those dreaming of the beach, invest in a mid-century lounge chair swathed in cobalt suede or the bright blue bed with a rattan headboard curved like a wave. For more functional gifts, see side tables that turn into trays or shelves that split into three different stools. 

Those looking for softer things, The Rug Republic lays down the carpets here and several designers pool in for Yavanika's upholstery and soft furnishings. They also sell luxe closets under an in-house label called Mora, beginning with a small almari for this and that, ending in a velvet-lined walk-in to fit you + your giant ego. And if you don’t know the drill, the floor above will soon host carpentry workshops. We saw to it.

Getting there: Magari, 872/D, ground floor, Trinity Woods, 80 Feet Road, HAL IInd Stage, Indiranagar, call 41616101, rugs start at Rs 3,000, Rs 45,000 for the icy blue suede lounge chairs.
