Deepaloka by Atah Lifestyle, Pune
I won’t lie. My heart skipped a beat when I saw these beautiful porcelain diyas. Such a new, fresh look, and paired with wood, they are irresistible!
Inspired by India’s rich heritage, the Deepaloka is a modern-day ode to the traditional oil lamp. Designed for contemporary homes, Deepaloka is a 3-piece lamp in porcelain and wood. Its structure is reminiscent of the architecture and wooden pillars of Pune’s Vishrambaug Wada, historically home to Bajrao II and a gorgeous 3-storey, 19th-century mansion.
