The First of its kind online furniture startup – InnoDesigns has got backing of Rs. 75 crores investment from PAN Group, a multi-interest Business group from Rajkot in Gujarat. The startup is the brainchild of a new-age entrepreneur from the PAN family, Nidhey A. Pan and will be led by experienced professional Neetii Maacker. The vision of InnoDesigns is to create the most innovative, trustworthy and compelling ecosystem for every living and working space stakeholder. The investment received over the next 3 years will be utilised for market expansion, technological development and hiring of human resources.
InnoDesigns aspires to disrupt the online furniture market by creating an innovative platform wherein customers can choose any furniture design that can further be built by various listed and rated carpenters, small & medium scale manufacturers in their locality. The platform offers great flexibility and affordability to the customers where the high cost and margin of the expensive showrooms get nullified, and customers get the ultimate benefit.
InnoDesigns will have a pan India presence starting first from 2 southern cities Kochi & Coimbatore. Gradually the startup aims to tap almost the entire length and breadth of the country. It is an Uber-like model for the furniture market in India where customers can get their favourite furniture designed from the trusted & rated carpenters & other small & medium manufacturers listed on the InnoDesigns platform in their locality across India. All local carpenter & manufacturing partners on the platform have been listed based on various skill-based and experience criteria so that customers are well assured of the quality they will get. The startup is driven by the mission of transforming the furniture and decor market, doorstep services, interior and architectural experience through the power of digital visualisation and innovation with utmost convenience.
InnoDesigns promotes income generation opportunities for talented carpenters, small and medium manufacturers who will execute excellent artistry for the discerning customers on the InnoDesigns platform. At the same time, customers can get a variety of skilled workers at a fraction of the cost they would have spent on an expensive showroom or any other online portal. Customers have direct access to genuine craftsmanship at a fraction of the cost for which they would have paid a good sum at a flamboyant retail showroom.
