This new store blends tradition with modern accents
Magari, which means a sense of hope, was founded by Vishal Wadhwa and Amitha Madan. The store, spread over three floors, opened recently on Indiranagar’s 80ft road. The interior of the space is bright with brick walls and retro-chic touches. The store also has an in-house studio space, located in an open courtyard.
Magari boasts a vast range of products which include not only furniture, but also fabrics, lighting, accessories, wallpaper, rugs, wooden flooring, bedding, wardrobes and kitchen solutions.
Their current furniture collection has accents of wood, cane and 70s-inspired pieces. “We wanted to bring back cane furniture. Wooden furniture with interesting upholstery is hard to come by,” says Madan, who is an architect. Stocked in the store are ergonomic chairs, four-poster beds and sleek tables — all contemporary in style but with traditional influences. Their accessories range has pictures frames and mirrors to candle stands and lamps.
They have also teamed up with other designers for their accessories. Yavanika, a fabric store, brings drapes, throws, cushions, upholstery and wallpaper. European brand, Parador, teams up with them for modern tiles. Customers can choose from hand-tufted and hand-woven rugs from the Rug Republic.
The store also exclusively houses Bofi kitchens, an international brand that blends functionality with design. For wardrobe choices, Mora has contemporary pieces with an emphasis on attention to detail.
