The Pure Concept house by Chanya Kaur
Chanya Kaur, the creative force behind The Pure Concept, a home furnishing brand she co-founded with her husband Dalbir Singh in 2012, has decided to take matters into her own hands. In December of last year, she opened The Pure Concept Home as a holistic and expansive studio-store in Mumbai’s iconic Kala Ghoda district, the city’s design hub.
Close to the Jehangir Art Gallery, Ador House turned out to be exactly the kind of place she was looking for. “I believe that natural light and a good ceiling height are the two decisive factors when it comes to highlighting a product, whether it is upholstery, furniture, any material or of a space, ”Kaur explains.
As the home of a brand meant to evoke minimalist sophistication through its furniture, furnishings, ceramics offerings – anything that really has to do with home decor and design – Ador House has undergone a major overhaul. . Kaur, however, was clear about maintaining its heritage value; the idea was to merge the brand’s contemporary ethics with the architectural history that underlies the structure.
The store now spans two floors, with an interior spiral staircase to the upper level. Everything from furniture to fabrics is optimally highlighted, aided by the penetrating daylight and the staggering ceiling height.
