Your home’s your castle. And if you want it to make a striking statement, drive in to Art ‘e’ Fact at JD Hi Street Mall on Main Road, Ranchi.
The sleek lifestyle den, a labour of love of two Ranchi entrepreneurs Ritika Jain and Uttara Sarawgi, opened on Monday.
“We decided to stock pieces that spell taste and class and are actually conversation starters. Ranchiites are well travelled and like their home to bear the stamp of uniqueness. People who love exclusive pieces will like what we offer here,” Jain smiled, showing off Vietnamese showpieces, clocks with an antique finish, a replica of Auguste Rodin’s iconic sculpture The Thinker and so on.
Sarawgi said homes should not just look stunning, they should also give off a warm vibe.
“That’s why we have a very special collection for people who believe in Feng Shui and Vaastu,” she said, showing off the Laughing Buddha idols and aromatic candles.
Art ‘e’ Fact is quite a treasure trove of designer photo frames, handcrafted jewellery, mother-of-pearl showpieces and the like that made for some great gifting ideas.
“We get tired of giving and getting clothes and make-up. These are great new picks,” said youngster Richa Verma, browsing through the store.
Pick up your statement piece for anything between Rs 350 and Rs 15,000. And let your taste talk.
