Have you gone shopping for something you needed, only to be very disappointed that everything looked so boring, mass-produced, and ugly? This happened to Kanupriya Malik
too. She started out thinking about mirrors, and how these were something we used everyday, yet they were so mundane, with absolutely no element of design or style! Luckily for her she is an interior designer, and she decided to do something about it, - something extraordinary, like so :)
Says Kanupriya, "I was thinking of all the
things girls love, and how I could put them to use and come out with a
product that any girl would want. I started with buying little trinkets
and things girls like, such as pearls, hair accessories, diamond
crystals and other small knick knacks picked up from anywhere and everywhere.
Finally when I had collected enough things, I would spend all day arranging and rearranging things on mirror frame,
to finally settle on what I liked and made a prototype.
When she showed the prototype to her clients, a mother-daughter duo, they loved it. From
there on, she started on newer designs and started selling her products
under the brand name Studio Blaq.
Kanupriya told The Keybunch, "My inspiration majorly comes from everyday things
and places I visit. It's usually something as simple as sand or something as complicated as a machine and its parts that
might inspire my designs. It's just what clicks at that point in time."
Kanupriya also has some antique-inspired mirror frames in vivid colors (see image below), but I personally think that they have become quite ubiquitous of late!
Her bauble-studded mirror frames however, are a work of genius - and every young girl would love to have one of these in her room! And for that extra bit of love, all her bauble mirrors come with a goodybag in case you want to add a few knick knacks on your own! How cool!
