Be smitten by summer linen


SUMMER IS here and so are pastel shades. If you're looking at doing up your home this season, do away with those dark and heavy fabrics and go in for the net, organza and lace selections, available at Upasak Furnishings, that opened recently in Indiranagar. A look at their range of organza and sheer curtains and you'll feel tempted to make a change in your home, even if you haven't planned one.

The store offers a variety of curtains and curtain accessories too, be it curtain rods with different finishes, tassels, fringes, and so on. You could pick up drapes here in cotton, tissue, silk, satin, and polyester. While some are the regular prints and designs, there are a couple of hand-painted ones that look very pretty. Upasak offers various styles in the stitching of the curtains too, such as American pleats, box pleats, French pleats, belt type, scalloped edges, and so on.

Upasak, which calls itself a complete interior store, provides you with options for your bedrooms, bathrooms, and tableware too. You could pick up bathroom mats and designer sets or dreamy bed linen, including covers, bed sheets, quilts and blankets, pillow and cushion covers, Spanish durries, and rugs. The cushion covers with zardosi work and tassels are very pretty and could be made to order too. Upasak also stocks Kashmiri (again very pretty) and Banarasi cushion covers.

While at Upasak, remember to pick up little pouches, organza tablemats, small cushions and covers, dressing table sets and other items such as gift bags and so on as giveaways. There are various little things that you could pick up for as little as Rs. 80.

The upholstery selection that forms a large part of the store is elegant too. Sofa tapestry is available in handloom, quilted, silk, chenille, and other fabrics. The store also gives you various accessories for your sofas.

Upasak provides customers with measuring, stitching, fitting and complete home servicing. The store can be contacted on 5203748/49.
