Refining Design Spotlight: Inde-Art Design House


Sorab of Indie-Art Design House and me

Here in Toronto, we have a wealth of options when it comes to purchasing décor pieces to create beautiful interior spaces. There are so many to choose from, in fact, it can be overwhelming to the un-trained shopper!

Fear not – because I am an interior decorator who loves to shop.

It is my privilege and honor to be able to use this space once in a while to spotlight and recommend what I believe to be Toronto’s hottest spots for the décor-savvy shopper.

If you have refined tastes and appreciate beautiful décor, this is the feature for you.

In this edition, I speak with Sorab, who is the owner of Inde-Art Design House.

Inde-Art Design House – Leslieville, Toronto

Located in Leslieville, Inde-Art offers their clientele truly exquisite furniture and home accessories, including incredible solid wood furniture all the way from India.

Incredible wood furniture all the way from India.

They have also become a premiere destination for those looking for one-of-a-kind custom wood cabinets. They artfully create kitchen cabinetry, kitchen islands, and bathroom vanity cabinets.

It’s well worth noting that their door and drawer panels can be customized to fit existing boxes and drawers (yes… even IKEA boxes and drawers).

I especially love that many of their furniture pieces and kitchen and bathroom cabinets are created from salvaged or reclaimed wood.

How long have you been in business?

10 years.

How did you get started? Tell us a bit about your background.

It all started with custom cabinetry. I was looking to re-do my own kitchen and I was dismayed to discover that there weren’t many exciting options available that wouldn’t break the bank.

What inspires you?

Honestly, our clients inspire me to create truly unique kitchen and bathroom spaces.

Why are you in this business? Why did you decide to open

your own store?

Many are surprised to discover I actually have an engineering background. But, I got tired of commuting and the 9-to-5 lifestyle was not for me. I am much happier and more fulfilled doing what I do now.

Why did you choose this neighborhood?

I love our space here in Leslieville. We are in a great warehouse building, which is the perfect setting to showcase our products. It’s also a hub for unique furniture stores like ours.

I love creating unique, truly out-of-the-box spaces and working with clients who are brave enough to be different.

Why is décor important, in your opinion?

Because it makes life beautiful 🙂

What is your personal/business slogan?

Keep it simple!

How do you feel about trends? Follow or unfollow?

Trends are good to follow, but always personalize them to suit your own style.
