Moorthy’s Love for Art-Deco

Moorthy and his wife Jacinta are Mumbai’s most known faces for antique dealers. From furniture that is century-old to small art-deco that depicts history, you can find it all in Mumbai’s Tardeo neighbourhood. Started as a dealer in Colonial furniture, Moorthy’s gradually expanded into art deco, select vintage objects, and mid-century modern design. For Moorthy, restoration is an art which he has learnt from his experience. For him, each crack and stain, add up to the historic story of the piece and that clearly shows in the commendable curation they hold at Pooranawalla.

However, the city of lights, Mumbai stands on the pedestal of Art-Deco district with many other destinations like Pooranawala. You could visit Phillips Antiques in Colaba and Camelot in Kemps Corner too who also specialize in restoration and resale but Pooranawalla is one atelier who would fall in love with. 

So what if you haven’t inherited an art-deco armchair yet? Now you know, buying one is always an option. Thanks to Pooranawala and others who keep the old goodies alive!
