The brand’s founder Mr Rohit Khemka, had been an early advocate for Bhagalpuri silks, and he began his career as a supplier of the silk material. The company pivoted to become original designers and distributors of upholstery fabrics a while ago. Since then, they have worked with some of the best in the industry, and count Mrs Manmohan Singh, Priyanka Vadhera, Amitabh Bachchan and Abhay Deol among their customers. They have collaborated with top-notch designers and distributors from around the world to service a luxury clientele back home and give them access to a curated edit of the latest in decorative fabrics. This latest edit is in the same direction.
Furnishings from around the world

Located in the north-west of England, SketchTwenty3 by Tim Wilman is an internationally acclaimed wall coverings company. They make high quality luxury wallpapers in elegant post-modern designs and a sophisticated colour palette. Special techniques and effects such as glass beaded products and unique hand-woven grass cloths in the materials.
RR Décor’s other collaboration includes Persan, which, according to Mr. Khemka, should remind one of the ‘palaces of Turkey’. Persan was established in 1975 by three brothers in the back-alleys of Sultanhamam, Istanbul, and now has grown into one of international repute. The collection with RR Décor takes inspiration from beautiful botanical blooms to scenic mountainous landscapes of Italian towns Brunate and Bellagio.
So very Versace
The Versace 1969 Home’s collection with RR Décor is nostalgic, juxtaposing ancient Greek with pop culture. According to a spokesperson from the brand, “The inspiration is the story of Versace, our past that meets today and looks to the future.”

The narrative touches upon the maison’s legacy, while adjusting to modern tastes. The Rhapsody line features living and bedroom furniture with gold tone Medusa and ornamental curved and elegant shapes. The unapologetically extravagant Versace Home universe has always translated the glamorous codes of its fashion ethics into its home collection. The latest Versace Home collection proves that the brand is constantly adding an innovative edge to its heritage.
The collaboration with Milano Tessuti is to fulfil the demand of a more contemporary aesthetic for the industry, and cater to new concepts of living. The precious yarns, completely natural, elevate the fabric and are a joy to touch and feel.
