A wise part of us worries about the environment, the space that we live in and the things we can do to make it all better. Another part of us loves pretty things. Combine these parts into one and the result will be outstanding. But how do we do that? How do we get design to help save the natural world?
The brainchild behind Age of Sage
, Shreya Nagpal got inspired by her passion for the environment and love of design and luxury to start her own unique line of products for homes. She uses reclaimed products such as old bottles, jars, wood and old electric boxes that are repurposed through the process of upcycling. Finally, she brings to you an end creation that is contemporary and pretty, almost unrecognisable from the original raw materials used. It started off when Shreya was designing her farmhouse in Karjat without the help of an architect and realised that she wanted to incorporate repurposed products in her house and garden. And since she couldn’t find any items that were artistic and pretty along with being environment friendly, she decided to take matters in her own hands. Her creativity made her launch her brand, named after her 13-year old Labrador Sage.
Age of Sage has a variety of products such as LED lights, hanging lights, lamps, light installations, candles, candleholders, glasses, vases, planters, penholders, mitti pots and furniture. They are also coming up up with a range of garden accessories like bird feeders and wind chimes. Reclaimed materials used to make these products are thoroughly cleaned and treated before the ultimate transformation, and each piece is handpainted and sealed to avoid discolouration. They also customize products to fit the client’s needs, by creating engraved lamps with initials and tailored colour themes when it comes to furniture. The bar lights are a total hit and they also make gift items for festivals and occassions, along with centre pieces for weddings on pre-order basis.
The price of the products ranges between Rs. 700 and Rs. 20,000 and you can get in touch with them by calling on 9768905526 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. They deliver across India and payment can be made through bank transfers.
