Meet the Chairwoman

Saba Kapoor, founder and creative director, Nivasa Contemporary, has carved an unbeatable niche for herself

Fun, fierce, fabulous. Saba Kapoor, founder and creative director, Nivasa Contemporary, is young in years but certainly a force to reckon with in the world of contemporary furniture. A dynamic trailblazer, searing through the clutter of Chinese remakes and global spinoffs in the furniture mart in India, Saba is firmly positioning Nivasa Contemporary as a luxury brand that carries aspirational value for the savvy Indian.

“I feel furniture design is an integral part of my DNA,” she confesses. “No matter which new restaurant, home, hotel or city in the world I visit, I have always closely observed and absorbed its interior and architectural elements to widen my knowledge and understanding of design.” Studying at Parsons School of Design and living in New York built on this by familiarising her with cutting-edge technology, unique materials and different points of views and perspectives towards design

“My background and knowledge in the field of manufacturing and design also helped me realise that contemporary furniture could be taken to another level through fine detailing, amalgamation of materials and radical experimentation with colours. My years at Parsons equipped me to turn my design ideation into actual products when I returned to India.”
