Maximalism:​ ​The​ ​only​ ​constant​ ​is​ ​change

Bold ​is ​Gold

Maximalism​ ​is​ ​about​ ​dynamism.​ ​Not​ ​only​ ​is​ ​it​ ​the​ ​perfect​ ​antidote​ ​to​ ​austerity,​ ​but also​ ​a​ ​source​ ​of​ ​excitement​ ​and​ ​a​ ​space​ ​to​ ​experiment.​ ​This​ ​Kolkata​ ​home​ ​does​ ​not conform​ ​to​ ​a​ ​single​ ​style​ ​of​ ​design.​ ​Over​ ​the​ ​years,​ ​it​ ​has​ ​evolved​ ​out​ ​of​ ​collecting art​ ​and​ ​artefacts​ ​during​ ​the​ ​owners’​ ​trips​ ​around​ ​the​ ​world.

The​ ​landing​ ​outside​ ​the​ ​apartment​ ​is​ ​paneled​ ​with​ ​teak​ ​wood​ ​and​ ​adorned​ ​with​ ​the Luce​ ​Naga​ ​Four​ ​Bulb​ ​Wall​ ​Light.​ ​Gorgeous​ ​tropical​ ​wallpaper​ ​greets​ ​visitors,​ ​as​ ​the eye​ ​does​ ​not​ ​know​ ​where​ ​to​ ​rest-​ ​at​ ​Paola​ ​Navone’s​ ​Chester​ ​Moon​ ​sofa​ ​for​ ​Baxter, a​ ​fantastic​ ​glass​ ​mosaic​ ​from​ ​Berengo​ ​Studio,​ ​Skygarden​ ​lamps​ ​by​ ​Marcel​ ​Wanders, or​ ​our​ ​Fools’​ ​Gold​ ​tables.​ ​If​ ​the​ ​Baccarat​ ​chandelier​ ​isn’t​ ​enough​ ​to​ ​enamour​ ​one, adding​ ​to​ ​the​ ​grandeur​ ​are​ ​lights​ ​from​ ​Paul​ ​Bert​ ​Serpette,​ ​the​ ​world’s​ ​largest antique​ ​market.​ ​A​ ​spacious​ ​passage​ ​inside​ ​contains​ ​the​ ​Vanilla​ ​Noir​ ​General​ ​and​ ​a host​ ​of​ ​vintage​ ​Bengali​ ​cupboards.​ ​All​ ​this​ ​tied​ ​up​ ​gently​ ​together​ ​leaves​ ​one slightly​ ​breathless.
