& then came about purely as a whim. Shared with a friend Shallay Bartholomew whose help and enthusiasm nudged me in the direction now being taken.

As the name denotes, "Now & Then" is all about contemporary (now) as well as not so contemporary (then). Being essentially indoor benches these can be placed in a hall, lobby, foyer or verandahs. Made of wood, metal and glass that are handcrafted and hand-painted and being offered in limited editions. Their USP being that these can be customized to an extent to suit your individual fancy by way of offering selected color-ways in some of the designs ! So without further ado.... Come..... Lets Sit !

Benches...Now & Then has exquisite pieces made in burnished wood, metal, colored glass as well as blown glass inlaid with copper designs.


A very special thanks to Deepak Tiwari without whose creative sensibilities these benches and pots would not have been possible to accomplish.

Ambika Sethi is entirely responsible for making the benches and pots look special with her competence behind the lens. So...thank you both!
