From the framework of your paintings to the fancy table sitting in your living room, everything talks about your style, likes and dislikes. After you’ve mastered your landlord issues, figured out the water timings, fixed your gas connection and repaired the broken switches, what comes next is the furniture. And don’t even get me started on how pretty yet expensive furniture available online is.
I mean, I recently liked this colourful ottoman on a furniture website but it was priced at Rs 8,000… Not something I can afford on my salary! But furniture is a necessity and luckily for me, Delhi has some amazing furniture markets. From elegant sofas to quirky trunks, bars and recliners, there’s so much to choose from.
If you’re planning to revamp your house or if you’ve recently rented a new apartment, visit the market closest to your house.
