Beauty, after all, lies not just in good genes; regular regimes and easy spending play pretty important roles also!
The distinctive home
The home is certainly where the heart is and it’s difficult not to lose one’s heart over the range of home décor and upholstery now in the market courtesy Gul Ahmed, So Kamal and other well-recognised names in home furnishings.
Khaadi Home, having set up shop less than a year ago, is a colourful mix of ethnic inspirations with the high-quality textile that is the brand’s signature. From furniture imported from Thailand and upholstered in-house to bed-linen and mats, right down to the variety of cushions, prettily embroidered or with saucy truck-art digital prints, it’s a shop that screams individualism.
Just as unique is Veranda at 5 by accessory designer Mahin Hussain and her sisters Zainab and Mariam Hussain with its kitschy, cheeky home decor. The chairs are upholstered with the now-redundant traditional Shamiana print, furniture printed with emblems dating back to old Karachi monuments such as the Metropole Hotel and Empress Market and cushions embellished in vibrant shades — these are furnishings that are irresistible and make statements all on their own. Veranda at 5 is available at Islamabad’s Nomad Gallery and the first floor of Ensemble in Karachi, where it shares space with brands like the funky Good Earth by Ratankara and the elegant La Maison.
On a more sophisticated level, there’s the team behind YOC’A, blending leathers with custom-made printed upholstery, polished wood with brass, bona fide gramophones with safer retail options like shelves, bucket-chairs and etched work-tables. In a matter of years, YOC’A has established itself to be a brand that is very fashion-savvy, even creating a theme-based furniture collection with designer HSY last year.
