For a décor practice that has been around for centuries in the western world, residential wall-coverings have certainly taken their time to find their way here. Asian Paints, the foremost paint manufacturer in Asia has been making their name from scratch.
It has been four years now that Asian Paints has been officially bringing to India the finest wallcoverings and various other surfaces, such as decals and paintables through their robust label: Nilaya.
Nilaya’s first collaboration set the standard for all future pairings. It was with the one and only, Sabyasachi, arguably India’s favourite and foremost designer.
His inimitable India Baroque designed exclusively for Nilaya still makes designers shiver with excitement. His signature lavish vision and experimentations with traditional artistic forms have been transformed into wallcovering patterns and the collection is still the talk of the town.
Now it is time for the next breathtaking collection – the ambitious and towering, Chapter II: India Revival Project. Through textile traditions such as chintz and toile de jouy, detailed Raj era etchings, the heady beauty of Mughal gardens and stately French architecture.
Sabyasachi’s mastery over India’s artistic tradition finds fresh articulation. Saturating these visions with passionate shades such as pomegranate and indigo, deep sea green, crimson, rose and noble sandalwood results in an unforgettable visual world.
