Glamour for your home

The annual Zeba sale is on in the city


FOR THAT dream house with elegant rooms in pastels or bright tones with colour co-ordinated furnishings, with . stripes, swirls, blocks, bandhini ... . and design ideas that will impel you to change your dream into a reality, then the time has come. To create a home that reflects the character of its inhabitants, step into Odds & Ends - the gift store that is hosting the annual Diwali sale of ZEBA.

Zeba - a home furnishing brand that retails out of Mumbai is offering a 40-50 per cent off on its range of home furnishings like dhurries, carpets, bedspreads, cushion covers, table mats, table covers, curtains and throws. "Zeba sells quality furnishings at very affordable prices. The variety you get is amazing and at prices that appeal to all categories of buyers," says Thangam Joseph of Odds & Ends. Bedspreads come in single and double sizes ranging from Rs 480 - 810. Cotton is the predominant material and is extremely sturdy. Florals, block prints and abstract designs dominate in designer colour combinations of cream, rust, orange, fuchsia, ochre, yellow and green. You can mix and match the bedspreads with pillowcases that come in three sizes - small (12x12), medium (16x16) and large floor cushions (24x24). Prices range from Rs 75 - 235 which is a steal considering the quality of the material. For a fancy touch to your room, try the silk cushion covers with zari and sequins costing between Rs 150 - 300. Hand tufted carpets and dhurries in a variety of weaves and colours carry the maximum discount of 50 per cent and are available in different shapes and sizes. From dark purples and blacks to pale creams and violets there is a carpet for every floor here.

Window dressing gives any room an instant lift. Zeba gives you a range of readymade curtains in cotton, voile, tissue, organza and a thick weave called Bam. Available in rich colours like maroon and olive these curtains are ideal for making fashion statements. But our pick of the lot goes to the picnic blankets or throws in animal prints and sequins. Designed for those who love opulence and richness, these tasselled blankets are made of velvet and satin and cost Rs 600 after discount. "I like the contemporary designs and prints on Zeba products. The set of six tablemats and napkins are very attractive and durable so I bought a set. I also love the voile-striped curtains in olive. They look very classy but unfortunately the colour I want is not here," said Ms. Mammooty, wife of the famous actor. Upholstery material is available in a range of English prints and is priced between Rs 170-260 per metre. Though a bit expensive, it works out to be cost effective because the width is more that what is available in the market and less material is required. So if you want to give your home a designer touch, grab what is on offer at Zeba before October 7.
