Nitin Kohli Home is a rebranding exercise unlike any other. Interior Designer Nitin Kohli has outdone himself by transforming his refurbished store into a living model of design excellence.

For almost two and half decades, the name Nitin Kohli has remained bigger than the brand Furncraft Decollage that the New Delhi-based interior designer built from scratch. “Clients and vendors were more comfortable saying Nitin Kohli than FDC,” recalls the designer who decided it was time for a revamp and rechristening of his cherished store. Nitin immersed himself in a process that can be best described as a labour of love to present an interior decor store — Nitin Kohli Home — that sets itself apart with its bespoke aesthetics. It wasn’t an easy ride because “designing one’s own place is most difficult, one has to trust their own instinct”, but the store is now a haven of curated and customized gems, be it furnishings, wall treatments, furniture or other decor accessories.

Located near the landmark Qutub Minar in New Delhi, the renovated 4,000-square-foot space enjoys a bigger display area along with a fresh layout right from the entrance. Nitin poured himself into every single detail, ensuring each new feature flowed harmoniously into the other, including the winding staircase, which was a challenge to reconfigure. Embellished with an installation of falling leaves, the refurbished stairs lead you down into the basement where the story that is Nitin Kohli Home begins. A little courtyard with a faux grass carpet and patio furniture mirror the exterior entrance in the basement. From here, one steps into the foyer of the showroom, a space that could easily fit into any warm, sophisticated home.
