Bespoke propellers

WoodFeather’s debut in 2017 marked a change in the luxury décor sector that paved the way for the novel concept of Airplane Propellers for decor in India.

Akshay Sharma, Founder of WoodFeather and a flying enthusiast, found his calling a few years ago when he couldn’t find a propeller to put in his own home and took it upon himself to make one. And ever since there was no looking back. Last year’s launch focussed on some experimental designs as a first-of-its-kind product category and this year WoodFeather takes it to a new level. With his growing love and commitment to this art, Akshay quit his high-flying corporate career last year to pursue his passion and widen his base by shipping across the globe.

Hand carved from a solid log of wood, each propeller has been crafted after weeks of thought that have gone into the thematic elements by highly skilled craftsmen who work on each piece for weeks to achieve the desired shape and finish. Their designs cater to all styles ranging from vintage to the quirky or a contemporary look. The collection this year is divided into three distinct lines—Teak, Classic and Signature. WoodFeather also offers the option of customised propellers where you can create your own design by choosing the shape, size, color and finish with a personal message engraved on it.  

WoodFeather propellers can be hung on a wall in the home or office, repose in a cozy library corner, or a bookshelf or a bar. Available in four and six-foot sizes for all models, the price range starts from Rs 28,000, going up to Rs 56,000. The custom-built ones start from Rs 35,000 onwards.

Hand-painted ceramics

Studio Malabar offers hand-painted traditional Oriental porcelain artifacts.

Decorative elements on porcelain have changed over the centuries. A characteristic of a 15th-century blue and white porcelain, for example, is the ‘heaped and piled effect’—when the under-glaze cobalt blue concentrates in certain areas, turning a deep blue-black. This  gives texture, energy and shading and was admired in the 18th century. Later, potters mastered the technique to achieve a more even cobalt blue tone. Look for these at Stone Building, Morvi Lane, Chowpatty.

Waterproof flooring

Bevora is a premium brand that offers one of India’s first 100% waterproof flooring (WPF) solutions that resemble and feel like wood, but is more durable. It was conceptualised and initiated by DUCOL Organics and Colours Pvt. Ltd., reputed in the field of pigment dispersions, preparations, plastic master batches and polymer compounds for over 25 years.

According to the company, Bevora has created a product that can be installed in a day, and last a lifetime. The flooring has a multi-layered structure which provides for sound absorption, temperature resistance and 100% waterproof construction. It has the look and feel of  textured hardwood, but is significantly easier to maintain since it can be installed in minutes over the  existing floor with a single click, the manufacturers add.

Bevora’s product range consists of The Opulence Collection and The Elegance Collection. It is 100% recyclable, says the company. Check them  out at:
