Like all festivals, Poila Baisakh is ushered in with festivities, positive vibes, and shopping. It always calls for some retail indulgence, so as to begin the year with new things. And while the list is usually dominated by new clothes, home decor items are not far behind.

Your home is an extension of your style and personality, and needs some pampering too. So glam up your space with these Poila Baisakh recommendations and let the good vibes take over...


Bed linen

The bedroom is a safe haven in every home and the joy that a well-decorated bedroom can bring is not spoken about enough. This Poila Baisakh, pick out bed linen that makes you happy — a small step that will contribute towards your self-care routine.

Chumbak is known for their quirky prints and classic designs. Pastels are the colour of the season and their collection of bedsheets, bed covers and pillow cases will fit right in with the trend and brighten your bedroom with the perfect summer aesthetic.

Cushion covers

From being a snuggle buddy and back rest, to a bright pop of colour in a staid corner — cushions are the unsung heroes of any home. If you are looking for a way to add texture and colour into your home decor with minimal effort, there’s nothing better than an attractive cushion cover. Mix and match prints and patterns to curate your very own collection.

The Wishing Chair’s unique collection of embroidered cushion covers have colourful floral designs that add a pop of colour and soften the overall look of a space. You can also pick from their wide variety of abstract printed covers to zhuzh up your rooms.

Dining and tableware

Poila Baisakh calls for get-togethers with friends and family, so why not invest in some new tableware that will elevate your dinner set-up and help you tablescape?

Nicobar’s collection of dining and tableware is minimalist while making sure that your table looks its best. Pick from articles made of stone, stainless steel and porcelain, among others, to add to your collection.


Just because curtains are an absolute necessity, doesn’t mean they can’t be gorgeous too. Curtains can set the vibe for your home and its spaces. Go for curtains that compliment the colours of your home to ensure that the aesthetics match rather than clash.

Rihaa’s hand block-printed curtains are subtle, with colours that are sure to match your home. Pick from an array of prints and palettes to add some personality to your home.

Accent pieces

Decor accents can not only luxe up your home, but can also reflect the personality and taste of its inhabitants. Adding art to your home is a great way to make your design aesthetic stand out. Pick something for your walls — classic wall plates are making a comeback — or pick an artistic piece that could also double as a lamp or vase to enhance the look of your home.

The Artment’s unique curation of art pieces, from sculptures to lamps and more, has something for everyone’s taste, ensuring you find the home accent you are looking for.
