Tresorie’s tea party collection is a cool buy for a warm summer evening
Tresorie, a one-stop home décor destination,
presents its latest tea party collection that is a must-have for every house-proud
houshold. The collection comprises an array of table tops of various sizes,
cups, saucers, and quirky chips and dips platters, crafted to perfection for
those who care for the finer things in life. These products are available in
wood, glass and marble, and the patterns imprinted are eclectic – from stripes
or geometric lines to Aztec designs and more. The store also offers a wide
range of high tea essentials which would give guests an experience of luxurious
elegance, with the utmost attention given to every detail of serveware.
1998, Tresorie is the brainchild of Sonali Arora, who has amassed
international accolades in both product and apparel design fields before venturing
to create a haven of home accessories in the suburbs of Mumbai. The store
derives its name from ‘Tresour’, a French word for treasure – which refers to riches
or anything that holds pride of place in one’s heart and home.
Tresorie is a complete lifestyle
store offering a wide assortment of designs, personalised service, and an
eclectic yet contemporary ambience. With areas allocated to home
collectives, silverware and tableware, bar accessories, kitchenware, bedding,
bath, rugs and aromatherapy lines; the store promises to be
a one stop luxurious solution for homemakers. It also houses a
section for outdoor planters and garden accessories as well as a terrace lounge.
Sonali Arora, the founder of
Tresorie, studied commerce at Sydenham College, Mumbai and went on to study
Apparel & Product Design at the SNDT University. At
university level, she won several awards while representing SNDT,
where she was greatly applauded for her work. She then went on to study
Technical Fabric Design in Switzerland, followed by a course in Art and
Technique of Framing with Pete Bingham, UK.
On a national level, she won the WEAR
contest (Wearability Economical Aesthetic Range in keeping with application and
market requirement) organised by the Textile Council in 1995 and the Smirnoff
International Fashion Awards. She was also awarded the Indian Retailers Woman’s
Entrepreneur Award 2009 for Tresorie.
Arora represented India at the
1995 International Fashion Awards at Cape Town, South Africa. Here she secured
the 4th position, making India a part of the top 5, among 55 participants from
around the globe. Her work was greatly applauded by the panel of judges, which
consisted of some of the top names of the industry such as Alexander Mc Queen
and John Rocha. She designed a creative line and her works were published in
the Half Moon (a Milanese company for creative strategies).
After being recognised on a
national and international level for her work, Arora set
up Tresorie in 1998. Her passion for interiors stemmed from her
mother, who had the knack of making a house look eclectic and
yet feel like home. Presently, she is creative director at Dicitex
Furnishings, rated among the top three furnishing companies in the world by
Fabric and Furnishings International.
