Manika Chopra who has been heading a popular Buying House in New Delhi for almost two decades decided to take a breather from the garment industry and let her passion for decor and penchant for color take over , so without reason or logic she looked at an ordinary bench and felt that it could be turned into a statement making piece of furniture for the INDOORS, hence BENCHES...Now & Then.

Having set off on a creative journey Manika again on a whim , painted pots that she had purchased some years ago from a well known decor store and on seeing these she started getting requests for the same. She immediately got on the job and made pots to match the Verandah benches to begin with and so the Hibiscus bench has pots to match and so does the Bird bench. This has met with considerable success since the USP of these pots is that , they are UNBREAKABLE and can be put outdoors as well !

Currently Manika is working on conceptualizing her next collection, benches inspired by Mughal Motifs pots to match / accessorize, having just finished with the IKKAT collection. She is on the lookout for a retail space and till she finds one, she is available by appointment only. Till then, without further ado .. “COME..LETS SIT”.
