Born from a quarter-century-old love story between a traveller and a hoarder. She loved art. He loved collecting all things timeless. Together they created an enchanting world of treasure filled with old furniture, enchanting collectibles and charming tales from another era. To some it is a store. To some, a treasure trove of stories in black and white. But to all it is a reminder why somethings stay beautiful forever. Touch wood.
It has been wonderful working with Preetha Chandrasekaran of Dhakshini and what she has done for us has been received extremely well by all our clients. Her eye for detail and a great sense of design makes it very easy for us to interact and achieve spectacular results using traditional elements in unique ways relevant to our modern times.
Enjoyed working with Team Dhakshini...great creativity and efficient execution.
We were renovating our house and looking for some special antique pieces. We found some great ones at Dhakshini. We picked up a fabulous console table and a study table. Extremely happy with our choice, quality and level of service.
We were new to antique furniture and always wondered if antique furniture, although charming, would fit and be useful in a modern day household. But when we entered Dhakshini, which boasts of a perfect fusion of past and present, our doubts were put to rest. This, coupled with Preetha, who is very creative and at the same time open to understanding her customer's needs, makes it a perfect place to shop.
Antiques acquired through Dhakshini are exquisite modern avatars of tradition culture in context.
We went to Dhakshini and met Preetha 12+ years back, when we were on the lookout for antique pillars and sofas, and our acquaintance with Dhakshini started from then. Around 2013 when we decided to move to our new place we did not think twice and had the interior design work done by Dhakshini. When we were deciding on the interior, me and my family have sat with her for countless hours discussing the design, where Preetha listened to our requirements and she integrated it with usability, design and aesthetic. The furniture layout, and accessories complemented and enhanced the sense of space and helped us create a beautiful home that truly reflects our tastes.
