India Circus’s experience store is located at the luxury mall Palladium in Narendra Nagar. The decor of the new India Circus store at the new lifestyle destination, Palladium, renders a contemporary feel of the ‘Circus’. The shoebox store of almost 700 sq. ft. is a linear cuboid with 16’ high walls, painted part white and part charcoal, the latter colour continuing on the ceiling, which is a melee of layered services, all coloured in charcoal too. Apart from the white track lights and suspended lights, the ceiling also houses suspended wallpaper frames and clusters of Moroccan lights.
The store is open from 10 am to 9 pm through the week. With the signature India Circus experience, they provide customers with contemporary-chic, sophisticated and affordable styles for various areas of your life, from home décor to personal accessories. With an all-Indian palette, India Circus constantly draws inspiration from both Mughal Royalty as well as road-side chai while offering a diverse and distinct array of moods and tones, which we feel represent contemporary India.
