Sabyasachi Mukherjee has probably defined classic, elegant and regal taste in Indian fashion, and the high life. So it's with great curiosity that we (and any fashion lover) went through the photos of home -- after all, he's never let the media in before.
The designer is a master craftsman when it comes to showcasing his love for Indian textiles, fabrics and embroideries. He’s been an active part of reviving Benarasi silk and has voiced his concerns over India’s increasing dependency on machine looms. The designer is well-known for his traditional designs and his larger-than-life stores across Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata.
The designer is an equally spectacular stylist, dressing brides episode after episode in his show 'Band Baaja Bride'. He’s interviewed international designers like Diesel’s Renzo Rosso, and been the face of intellectual fashion in India. He's dressed the most influential brides in India like Bollywood divas Aishwarya Rai, newlywed Bipasha Basu and Asin. He is often referred to as the epitome of Indian luxury and every bride-to-be dreams of getting married in clothes created by this designer.

But ask Sabyasachi for a little more about his personal life or space, and you’ll find an immediate barrier. Architectural Digest India seems to have broken into that and covered the designer’s home for their June issue.
Sabya’s house features beautiful landscapes of lush green plants set alongside old, almost dilapidated furniture that’s used as décor pieces to add a sense of narrative to his living space.

The dining space is lined with colourful mosaics and fine cutlery and crockery. There’s a burst of colour, and it’s so different from the other spaces he’s created.
The bedroom is kept simple, masculine and very fuss-free without too many elements. Dark teak wood furniture remains a constant across the house and gives it a definitive look.
