The exhibition is a platform for designers to display their creations. Simi Narula Creations, is by a lady from Kolkata, who specialises in cold clay ceramics. Her work makes for excellent interiors. There are also creations from others like Neeta, Riddhi Siddhi Arts and Kalpa Arts to name a few.

The artefacts from Africa are particularly interesting. “I have concentrated on
roping in women designers so that they can display the items here. It is a way of
encouraging them. They don’t get a chance to do so very often because the bigger stores want only brands because of which these people go unnoticed,” said Abhijit Shilotri, CEO, Yatra Exhibits.

The theme this time is also the wedding season.  The concept is that a bride can walk in and buy anything she wants, to convert a house into a home. Everything is available   under a one roof, be it ready-to-use contemporary furniture, kitchen appliances, electric chimneys, water purifier, modular kitchens, vegetable graters, decoration items, clothes, upholstery etc. The Onyx stone, a brilliant green marble which is found in Pakistan, is also on display here.

There are more than 100 types of sofas from top brands as well as vintage furniture, dining tables, chairs, magazine racks, cabinets, nest tables, recliners, beds and cots available.
Other accessories for the home like artificial flowers, vases, aromatic candles and candle stands, wall paintings, miniature water falls, bath linen and carpets are also on display.

“I visit this exhibition every time it is here and never return without buying a thing or two. The variety of the collection is good. The exhibition seems to be getting better every year,”
exclaimed Anuradha, a housewife. The exhibition is on till November 30 at Gayatri Vihar, Palace Grounds.
