Dwll.in (pronounced ‘Dwellin’) is a curated network of interior designers and home furnishing stores across India. Our goal is to match you with the right designer and then provide discovery and access to home furnishing stores in your geography (and beyond).
You submit information on your design projects (including photos, answers to questions, and drawings/pictures describing what they want etc.) and we match you with designer(s) and start you on your design journey.
We listen to your ideas, connect you to right designers and help you achieve design awesomeness.
