Undeniably, 2017 has been a busy one for Gauri Khan. While the initial months of the year had the celebrity interior designer putting together a dreamy, all-white nursery for Karan Johar’s twins Roohi and Yash Johar, Bollywood fans got a glimpse of Khan’s work on the filmmaker’s party-ready terrace this April, and just when you thought she couldn’t possibly fit more projects into her schedule, Bandra restaurant Arth opened its doors to the public this June, spotlighting Khan’s signature interiors (think sparkling chandeliers, cosy couches and a monolithic bar) over two floors spanning a 5,000sqft space.
And that’s not all. Just as the buzz surrounding Arth was beginning to quiet down, Khan has yet another milestone moment to share with the world: the opening of her flagship store, Gauri Khan Designs. “It’s been an exciting experience, seeing it all come together,” she tells Vogue about the Juhu space. “I’ve been influenced by my travels across India and the globe. I take a keen interest in the architecture of places when I travel.”
With an aim to become a “one-stop destination for everything in interiors, which is accessible to all kinds of people, their different tastes, and budgets,” Gauri Khan Designs offers home accents from known designers including Roberto Cavalli and Ralph Lauren. And for fans of Khan’s trademark, luxe aesthetic, the store houses special finds from the expert herself. “Shoppers can expect a range designed by me at the store,” Khan says. “Gauri Khan Designs has bespoke furniture for your living room, and the outdoors too!” What makes a visit to Gauri Khan Designs even more intriguing: the space’s interiors follow a layout similar to that of Khan’s much-talked-about Bandra bungalow, Mannat. “Mannat unfolds at every level, with a unique and distinctive concept on each floor. Gauri Khan Designs is similar in that aspect.” Can’t wait to check it out?
