SSIO – III
Bangalore-based Design Cafe, a one-stop, branded solution for all interior needs. With a 10-year warranty, and a timely delivery promise, Design Cafe is delivering customer delight in the market. Their full-stack solution is fully integrated with technology from design to manufacturing and installation. The tech enables designers to significantly increase productivity, and deliver higher efficiency per designer.
Home improvement and interior design is a $20 billion industry that is completely fragmented and unorganised, which has been plagued with poor customer experience that stems from unsatisfactory fulfilment, inferior quality, opaque pricing, and unpredictable timelines. Consumer preferences are shifting towards a hassle-free solution with transparent pricing, warranty, and timely delivery – creating an increasing move from unorganised to organised, with the organised segment growing at ~24% CAGR.
“We are excited to welcome Nikhil and Swati from Sixth Sense Ventures on this incredible journey. The funds raised will allow us to take our highly rated services and products to more markets, and invest further in technology and people. We are on the cusp of change in India’s home interior and improvement space and are excited to work together to build a brand that will impact the entire ecosystem in a meaningful way. This includes providing better homes to customers and greater opportunities to designers and trade professionals. The company is targeting a gross annual order booking run rate of Rs.600-700 crores within the next 2 years, and will aggressively explore growth opportunities.”
