Baro: When the owner of one of Bombay’s most stunning homes launches a store to care for your casa, you should sit up and take notice. Preferably on the half leather-half cloth sky blue couch at Baro, run by Srila Chatterjee in partnership with art director Siddharth Sirohi. Shop for Japanese inspired desks, art deco lights rescued from cinema halls, mid-century chairs and consoles…all the furniture you need. They even have a wide selection of upholstery fabrics and tribal art and can customise furniture for your nook that needs something special.

Baro, 2, Sunmill Compound, next to True School of Music, Lower Parel, view the Facebook page here, on Instagram here

Goodearth: Once you've zeroed in on your dining table, head here for all kinds of delicious crockery and glassware. Design narratives are inspired by Persian gardens, Alleppey, Mysore, the Mughals and moonlit poppy fields. You'll also want to jump into bed with their pricey but pretty cushions and quilts.

Stores at Raghuvanshi Mills, Lower Parel and Juhu; also shop online on, follow them on Instagram here       

The Great Eastern Home: You can spend days wandering through the many expansive rooms that make up The Great Eastern Home, marvelling at antique beds and chandeliers from another era, peeping into Chinese medicine cabinets and colonial drawer sets. Secret: the back room facing a lotus pond can be rented out for parties.

 25-29, Dr. Ambedkar Road, near Rani Baug, Byculla, call 23770079, visit

Inside Out Innovative Designs: Your shopping cart will never be empty if you take up with the team at Inside Out. You can stop by their Bandra store to buy digital wall art and hand painted abstracts on canvas, or commission a design depending on the mood of your room. Their popular products like colourful dream catchers, decorative bells and bag charms, coasters, fridge magnets, cushions, diaries, gift cards, table mats and chic scarves are the best gifts to buy yourself and others. 

Shop no.1, Dunhill Dome, St. John Road, Pali Naka, Bandra (W), find them on Instagram here, Facebook here and Twitter here.

Sky GoodiesSky Goodies is glued to the first level of a pretty Chuim village bungalow, perfectly poised to sell all things crafty. Here you will find DIY craft kits unlike anything you’ve bought in Bombay before – they’re for grown ups, incredibly detailed and a great way to accessorise any shelf. Run by National Institute of Design graduates and branding professionals Misha and Amit Gudibanda, Sky Goodies also sells ready-to-buy stationery like writing pads with big lips; well-traveled suitcase-shaped gift boxes, recipe sheets, grocery and travel check lists with magnets that can be stuck to your fridge. It’s a date? On September 15, check for their new lighting range (hi, hot air balloon lamps!) for the festive season.
