More Than Meets the Eye | Functionality Redefined

More Than Meets the Eye | Functionality Redefined

Offering a fresh and modern take on furniture design, our new collection—MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE – Functionality Redefined heralds a new way of living. Combining exquisite design and functionality to create a flexible living experience, this range of furniture is interactive and suited to people’s everyday needs.

Now, more than ever, our homes are becoming multi-utility spaces. With everyone working from home, rooms are no longer defined by a singular purpose. Presently, people’s behaviours and habits have changed, this has resulted in their requirements to change as well. With this range, we are initiating a new movement—one that helps people to live a new, fluid kind of life every single day, through smart design. This collection showcases a new perspective on luxurious furniture that enables home spaces to free and empower people.

“The collection is called More Than Meets the Eye, as it has two main purposes-one is that it is multi-functional, and the other is that it’s space saving. What we’re doing with this collection is to redefine the meaning of luxurious furniture by offering opulent pieces that also have an element of usefulness and functionality. I believe that functional and multi-utility furniture is the new luxury,” states Saba Kapoor.

The multi-functional range channels this design thinking to inspire new, meaningful behavior within homes, such as allowing people to easily adapt furniture to suit their needs at a particular moment with just a couple of pulls, pushes, shifts or lifts.

With this philosophy, we have created a range of sumptuous furniture, which is also multi-faceted and space saving. For instance, our chic Kingfisher Table features a pop-out panel that is utility friendly and can be used as a coffee table, a desk or a dining table along with being a storage unit. The Woodpecker Bed Bench is a bed end with a convenient and space saving pull-out drawer for storage. Our Kingfisher Bar is ideal for homes that desire a sleek and compact bar unit, which is still functional and beautifully designed. As the name suggests, the Nightingale Pouffe Cum Table from the collection may be used as a pouffe or converted into an accent table by removing its top panel. Furthermore, the Black Swan Unit is an extremely functional and luxurious TV unit, dressing table and a study desk all in one. The piece features a sleek compartment inside which the TV ‘disappears’ when not in use. Once the TV disappears, the unit can be used as a dressing table with its semi circle mirror and LED lights or as a study table.

The pieces in our MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE –Functionality Redefined collection are intelligent, purposeful and aesthetically pleasing. For example, our Woodpecker Daybed is a set of two multifunctional chaise lounges. When kept together they form a queen size bed, perfect for guests. Placed separately, in an L-shaped manner, they function as a sofa set. The collection is designed entirely around the needs of people, to give them a flexible living experience, which is the need of the hour.
