It’s as frustrating to find a fake Picasso in someone’s home when you’ve spent a lot on an original, as it is to see somebody carry a fake version of your Chanel bag. Tuning into this unsettled state of mind, CuroCarte by Ananya Birla, which finds one-of-a-kind handcrafted art pieces from around the world, turned a year old this week.
Ornate 18-karat gold adorned teapots and cups from Thailand set the tone for their anniversary launch, which also included their Diwali collection. Their glazed pottery sets from the Celadon range compete with intricate glass mosaic lamps in their new collection.
“We’re trying to redefine luxury by bringing unique art pieces back to the modern lifestyle, as compared to big brands, commonly associated with luxury. The first phase was about curation, but now we’re getting into design as well, including bespoke design,” says Kanupriya Verma, the COO of CuroCarte.
