Magari, which means a ‘sense of hope’ is a design- centric, one-stop shop for everything one needs to convert a home or office into a special place
The brainchild of business person Vishal Wadhwa and architect Amitha Madan, Magari was established to bring (as the name suggests) ‘all that is desired’ home and office solutions under one roof. The idea was to give a client, be it a designer or homemaker the option to customize details with the aid of an in house Design Team. The aspirational brand goes beyond being just a store; the aesthetically pleasing space designed by Amitha herself was done so with the objective to provide a platform to showcase design talent locally and from different parts of the world.
The vast range of products spread over three floors includes furniture, fabrics, lights, accessories, wallpaper, rugs, and wooden flooring, bedding, wardrobes and kitchen solutions. Magari is a hotbed of creativity and innovation. The store with its distinct brick walls and retro-chic interiors is a design study in itself. Share an idea, a dream or even a glimpse of a vision and the team would be delighted to make this your reality. Housing carefully curated pieces, the current collection of the in- house furnitiure brand Magari revives past traditions and art forms with modern detailing through the skills of local artisans. The focus is on period creations with modern flourishes. 70’s inspired sofas, ergonomic chairs, sleek tables made using joinery and rich grained four-poster beds greet you as you walk into the ground floor.
Magari’s philosophy is to create timeless design that inspires and promotes design itself. It has an open culture that celebrates difference. “We should be able to evolve and grow with the times and yet not lose the soul of the space” Says Madan, which is why they have an open courtyard adjoining the ground floor that doubles as a dedicated studio space. They hope to have workshops conducted by experts on carpentry, pottery and product design from time to time, with the focus on reviving old crafts and adapting them to new forms.
Lovingly handpicked mirrors, candle stands, picture frames and vases placed intelligently around the space form the accessory range. Since lighting is one of the most defining design elements of any space, and to create the perfect ambience, an array of lamps, fixtures and statement pieces adorn the interiors.
A strategic partnership with Yavanika, a collection of eye-catching designer fabrics adds texture and colour to the space. A walk up to the first floor gives one an idea of how a home could come alive with Yavanika’s drapes, throws, cushions, upholstery and wallpaper. Samples of trending and modern tiles by Parador, a brand from Europe jigsaw across one corner, while a striking collection of hand-tufted and hand-woven rugs from the Rug Republic hangs above it.
The second floor houses Bofi kitchens, an international brand that is exclusively available at Magari. Bofi blends functionality with design, and creative features that turn everyday cooking into a delightful experience. The Mora range of wardrobes are contemporary in style with an emphasis on attention to detail and fit in beautifully with the look and style that the store is trying to achieve.Each inspired collection brought to the floor is influenced by various global cultures and accentuated with signature accessories.From the wood that is chosen to work with, the fabric used, and the skilled workmanship that is employed, everything is selected to enhance one’s experience.
With the undeniably extensive range and collection of products, the team’s refined design sensibilities, and a sensitivity to personal requirements, Magari really does have everything one can hope for under one roof.
