The rare flower’s beauty and meaning reflect in the entire opulence of the store. The store has a unique and contemporary collection of merchandise whose sole purpose is to redefine the beauty of the space in which it sits.
Siroi lifestyle store opened in Parra in April 2022. Since then, art lovers all over Goa have thronged to this beautiful store to see their admirable collection. There are many things to look at and be amazed by, like ceramics, pottery, rugs, home decor, hand-painted artefacts, and stylized clothing. Sapna Kabra’s exquisitely designed jackets and dresses from Kunbi sarees are also available. Among these are stunning beaded jewellery pieces, curated home decor, bags, shawls, and shoes. A store that speaks art is just apt for a place where art is embraced and loved.
New collection @ Siroi
Soon to be launched is a new category – Furniture by Siroi. The newest addition to its unique collection is vintage, classic, and timeless wooden furniture, which will soon adorn the store. The furniture is meticulously restored, keeping the old feel alive without compromising modern-day functionality. Carved wooden mirrors, writing desks, and dining tables are just a few of the many items soon to be seen in the store.
Table Lamps is yet another addition to Siroi’s impressive collection. Blue ceramic Table Lamps will add to the prettiness of your home. Read a book near it or admire its good looks; the lamp collection is worth a buy.
The artefacts @ Siroi
Those who have visited the store will vouch for its beautiful and worth-buying collection. The paintings by various artists, the Frida collection that has won many hearts, and the bamboo and jute baskets are simple yet make a statement. African masks and pure brass warriors are essential features of traditional African culture. Others include footwear, artistic and intrinsic jewellery, stylish ethnic and contemporary clothing for men and women, and sculpture. All of these will make a perfect addition to your home.
Sapna Kabra’s dream and vision is to collect traditional and contemporary art and artefacts from all over India and bring them together under one roof. The store is meant for art lovers and admirers. The store itself is a statement. It is an old heritage place once owned by the Miranda family. It gave away nostalgia after its restoration to full glory by Alinto Coelho. The rustic old walls, gorgeous windows and little elements here and there have embraced a diverse collection curated by the Kabras.
Just like the Siroi Hills, where the rarest of the rare Siroi lily is found, Sapna envisions Siroi Goa as the place where unique creations find their way into the homes of art lovers across the globe.
