The Olie store is here, have you heard? It's almost four weeks since we opened ( i cannot believe it's been that long ! ) and we thought we'd answer some of the questions you've been writing us with !
What led us to open the store ?
I'm an old-fashioned soul. I like brick and mortar, experiences that come real and engage all your senses. I also love meeting my clients in person. You learn so much more about your product and your customer this way.
Do you remember our pop up store at The Arts Village in Bangalore? We kept that up for the whole of Diwali month last year, and when we saw all of you coming by and having so much fun mixing and matching cushions, lamps and redecorating so spontaneously - we knew. We needed a space.
And the hunt began.
What sets the Olie store apart from our online store. Why should you visit us ?
Why shop online when you can drop in to the store, right? and vice versa.
So here's some clear differentiators between our physical retail space and our online boutique.
We customise for large projects all the time, but it was pretty rare for us to take on orders for home owners. Everyday, someone walks into the store wanting lamps for their homes, kids rooms and friends homes.
And we are so happy to make you these custom pieces !
Customisation happens in three simple steps
a. Choose the shape of your lamp
b. Choose the print/ solid colour you want
c. Give us the width/ height / length of the lamp - let's design it !
And then we craft your fine lamp and hand it over to you.
2. The first. The store will always be the first to host our newest products, the place where we keep samples and check to see if our clients love them. Drop in, meet us and let us show you around.
3.. The other thing that really sets the store apart, is saving on shipping costs. Especially for your lamps.
(Tip: If you're shopping online and want to save on shipping - we have an option that allows you to pick your order up from the store. voila ! Best of both worlds.)
4. And lastly, it is the experience. Come to the store to touch our fabrics, try on our travel bags, switch on some lamps and slow down a little. Your home reflects so much of your aesthetic and who you are, there's no better feeling than being in a space that you love and that truly feels like home.
Where is the Flagship Olie store located?
We are housed in a beautiful red brick building surrounded by trees on 80 feet road, in the swanky shopping district of Indiranagar ( where all the beautiful boutique stores are ) .
Find us on google maps, we are right opposite sapna book house.
We cannot wait to meet you here !
