At Sanskriti Lifestyle, we have a mix of genuine antique furniture and excellent replicas. The wooden door featured (top left) is a genuine antique from a demolished home in Rajasthan. The grain mill is old, and used to be a common kitchen tool in most homes.
We also have a great range of replicas, like the bench and the side chair with Singapore cane (bottom). Whether old or new, our furniture and home decor is "top quality and ever-green", to quote a customer :) All our replicas are made with recycled teak wood from demolished homes. Recycled wood has already been seasoned over the years. So our furniture doesn't face common issues like warping and swelling which even new teak wood can face. More importantly, recycled wood is great for our environment as it reduces the market for illegally-felled forest trees.
Anyone who has visited Sanskriti Lifestyle knows how important the environment is to us. For our buildings, we've made copious use of old doors, windows and pathways. Plus, the number of flowering trees and creepers we've planted is a testament to our commitment to our environment. Visitors to our lifestyle store know first hand that Sanskriti Lifestyle is as much about shopping as it is about experiencing this "beautiful landscaped ambiance"- again, as noted by a customer. It seems fitting to share with our online customers the "fleur du jour", then! Featured here is a bunch from our beautiful Madhur Malti creeper.
Also featured are silk embroidered cushions and wall panels from Kutch.
Hi! I'm one of the founding members of Sanskriti Lifestyle, and have absolutely loved our journey from small, tucked-away little gift store to our new avatar of sprawling bungalows dotting our beautiful gardens. Our philosophy is to put a smile on our customers' face, as they stroll through the colonial bungalows and embark on a discovery of our (very!) diverse home decor and furniture. We want to help our customers create their unique living space, either through our beautiful products, or through our style tips and ideas. Follow this blog. Team Sanskriti hopes you will enjoy it!
