This Mumbai Apartment Celebrates Its Countless Quirks


The living room is characterized by mid-century modern furnishings, upholstered in brightly colored local textiles. “I left the walls bare and wanted the aesthetic of the house to come through through the furniture,” says Shetty, “I wanted each piece of furniture to stand out and have its own style.” To accommodate the various activities the client was hosting in the living room – dance lessons, children’s parties and homeschooling – Shetty ensured that the furniture was light and mobile, and relatively higher off the floor.

The expanse of white wall in the living room is relieved by the delicate geometry of a series of strips of oak wood, and further adorned with a series of clay wall sculptures by Claymen. The central table, from Saar Design Studio in Pune, is an elegant composition of Ita Gold granite and Indian black granite. The loveseat was custom designed with a cantilevered side table by Magnolia Furniture, and was specifically designed to not obstruct the view across the living room. All the wood in the house is solid oak or oak veneer, creating a soft visual narrative throughout the apartment.

The terrazzo-covered oak TV cabinet is fitted with an MS shelving system manufactured with movable shelves that provide customers with additional storage space.

The dining and living room sections of the living room are segmented by the hallway artery. “From the dining room side, you have a view of the Mazgaon docks, and from the living room side, you have an amazing view of Mahalaxmi Racecourse and Haji Ali,” Shetty says. “So you have fantastic views on both sides and incredible cross ventilation.” The wooden dining table is equipped with a bench on one side, which also serves as a mini table for the guest’s small children.
