Giving the dream interiors to the people is the ultimate dream of mine
Initially starting her journey single handedly, Devika used to get clients through word of mouth. "In the first one and a half years, we were involved in several residential projects, which helped kick-start our growth in the industry." After the initial few years of hustle, there was no looking back for Devika and her team of designers. Today, Devika not only spearheads a team of interior designers in her studio, but she also mentors across several Design Universities in India.
Devika Diwan Designs is not just an Interior designing firm involved in projects. Over the years, the studio has ventured into all the different verticals of designing, be it arranging a Webinar for Interior Designers or getting into the styling industry. "It is more of a creative journey rather than limiting ourselves to interiors," concludes Devika.
Devika has been promoting curated and personalized aesthetic designs through her design studio, which are way ahead of its time across all the segments of interior designing from residential to retail and corporate spaces. In addition, Devika Diwan has her lifestyle store located at Khan Market, New Delhi, where she has a rich collection of light furniture, art and craft, and sculptors, which reflects her unique new age designs and chic décor. She opines, "today everyone is aware of what they want, my work as an interior designer is to bring out a better and an enriched version of their dreams to life." Devika Diwan feels that giving back to society is equally essential. Apart from her robust plans to expand Devika Diwan Design studio to the next level, the team of designers at the studio is also coming up with a unique e-commerce website that will promote women-oriented brands from the creative fields.
