Namita Agarwal, Founder of Sunshine Boulevard, recognised a scarcity of designer lighting products in the market while doing up her own home. It was either Chinese glass lights or expensive German or Italian brands that were easily available. Having worked with an advertising agency for over 10 years, Namita thought it was time to start something of her own.

“After a bit of research, I found quite a few Indian designers who made unique, hand-crafted lights. So I thought of creating a platform for these designers. We tested the idea with architects and then the store came into the picture. I started out with only lights as a product category. We also started working with our own designs, and later architects and designers started sharing with us the designs they wanted. We do customisation for both individuals as well as for interior designers.”

In the past 5 – 6 years, Namita has managed to tie up with kaarigars from Bangalore, Rajasthan and U.P., working with different kinds of materials and designs. She also began to add home decor and unique furniture designs to her collection. At the store, you will find a variety of light fixtures to choose from, across styles, materials and textures; from tall floor and table lamps right to metal light fixtures for the wall and lanterns to hang from the ceiling.

“Consumer trends have changed gradually over the past few years. People are open to a lot of creative things now. Over the past year, there is a huge trend developing of using industrial lighting and furniture which I have seen doing pretty well. There is also a lot of demand for distressed furniture.”

She goes on to advise: “Get an idea of what might suit your place. People often pick up lights at the end of a design process, which is a mistake. Deciding on lighting ideas at the time of construction is the right time to decide on what one would require.”
