A gorgeous couple who have built a
successful business together – that’s the dream that the husband-wife duo of
Pratik and Shikha Barasia are living through their start-up Square Barrel; a
one-stop shop for fascinating home décor and furniture!
They explained to us, “We wanted to use
a name that exuded quirkiness. We wanted to convey that barrels do not
necessarily need to be round just because they are traditionally so – thus the
name Square Barrel.”
And just like the brand’s name, the couple’s
furniture designs do not reflect the usual; they have a smell of quirkiness and
a different ‘shape’.

Eazelly caught up with this beautiful
and talented couple and with their signature flair they told us, “Just one
piece of creative furniture can bring cheer to an otherwise 'propah' room”.
Shikha’s personal style and inspiration
stems from her passion to design funky furniture in India. After creating her first
piece - the Rubik’s Cube Side-Table - there was no looking back for her.
From the first “Rubik’s Cube Side-table”
to the “Phone Booth Rack” and “Hands Cabinet”, each piece by this heart-made
brand is unusually enthralling and jaw-dropping.
The couple’s inspiration behind the Hands Cabinet was to associate diversity
with positivity, liveliness and togetherness.
Hands Cabinet - It represents the
hand prints we leave on drawers while opening them. To make it more interesting
than just a simple print, they have added actual wooden hands to the knobs of
themes of Pop and Tribal Art resonate with the creators for much of their
furniture. Their designs draw
inspiration from eclectic streams, but are always infused with a dash of their own
personalities and a funky twist.
So if you are you looking for that one statement
piece of furniture that will fascinate and intrigue, then Square Barrel should
be your destination. Each piece by Square Barrel is thoughtfully designed and
manufactured in-house, and is perfect to add that bit of quirk to your
