Rosara in India
In October Rosara headed to India. Our aim? To find exciting new products, meet suppliers, and check out potential new ones.
We scoured Delhi’s old bazaars and hidden treasures – some local knowledge took us a long way – finding everything from heritage pieces to some of the most gorgeous boutiques we’ve had the pleasure to visit, anywhere. We were totally inspired!
We fell in love with urlis, trunks, cupboards and tables. We met craftsmen who painstakingly restore beautiful items. We talked to artisans and manufacturers. And we shopped. So keep a lookout when visiting Rosara HQ in the next few months for some of the gorgeous things we found!
At Rosara we love to mix British, bespoke, handmade furniture and crafts with fine textiles and artefacts sourced more widely. This trip was to help us develop that mix and keep our styling fresh and exciting!
Everywhere we went, we saw innovation and creativity in displays, incredible attention to detail and colour and thoroughly enjoyed wonderful customer service.
We had good reviews with our existing suppliers, who make our textile products and lights. We were also pleased to find new suppliers, who we want to work with so we can expand our range, after listening to what our customers like most about us.
We think our main learning from the trip has been how to use colour subtly, whilst enough to give the ‘wow factor’. India is the land of colour, after all!
(And of course, you cannot go to India without seeing the Taj Mahal: every bit as magical as we’d hoped!)
