Scarlet Splendour was founded in 2014 by Ashish Bajoria and Suman Kanodia, a pair of siblings who grew up in Kolkata, India. Sharing a deep sense of appreciation for a certain aesthetic and mutual passion for design, they launched Scarlet Splendour aiming to integrate their maximalist point of view and become the first design editors in India.
Setting out to create trailblazing furniture, lighting, and rugs that are both classical and modern, whimsical and serious, and functional and dramatic, Scarlet Splendour has collaborated with international stores, press agencies, artists, and designers to transform lives and take local craftsmanship to global levels. The company heralds a blend of cultures and transcends geographical boundaries to achieve the extraordinary in the design world.
In 2015, Scarlet Splendour was exhibited at Spazio Rossana Orlandi during Milan Design Week with its debut collection by Matteo Cibic from Vicenza, Italy. In addition to Matteo Cibic's designs, the Scarlet Splendour portfolio contains a range of works from Dario Contessotto, Mirco Colussi, and Nika Zupanc. Since its launch, Scarlet Splendour has increased collaborations with designers of international acclaim, its latest being the Artefatto Design Studio from London and Elena Salmistraro.
