Our new range is a love letter to South India!
In an age and time when regionalism is being uniquely mined for Identity, at Freedom Tree Design Studio, we take pride in casting our eyes to the fabulous historical kingdoms and outposts of Southern India. With the opening of our store in Bengaluru, this is our love letter to the sun kissed peninsula, our new range – Under the Southern Sun.

Culture inspires Creativity 

 

Inspired by the design team’s travel to South India, our new range showcases patterns and colours that reminisce of the coastal towns of Madhurai, Karur, Pollachi, Chettinad and Kochi - vivid colorful facets in every location. Heady southern scents, silks, spices, idols, and woodwork dance and music tradition is imbued with a richness of antiquity which is respected and lived.

A New Color Language

 

 

 

We identify an amplified, electric, and polychromatic palette, embracing colors and tones new and old. There is high voltage on both hue and contrast. In the local markets, the popular taste is tempted with surprisingly bright colors and shine subsumed into everyday simplicity. We can’t wait to refresh, renew, and sanctify the home this season, with the familiar, the playful and colorful.

 

 

Under the Southern Sun reveals a New Regionalism, inspired by heritage, where tradition meets trend. Let’s discover something new in the familiar as we update and upgrade our homes for the coming season. See this love letter unfold into accent cushionsrugs, fabrics, and (upcoming) dinnerware collections

POCKETS OF GREEN

Vriksha Nursery Collaboration

Planter Pots

Nestled in a quiet neighbourhood in Andheri West, is an oasis of greenery and sheer lush beauty. The Vriksha Nursery and Freedom Tree came together for a one of a kind collaboration for this season of greens! The Nursery is a gem located in the heart of Andheri and has been around for 39 years. Their stunning succulents and an assortment of cactuses as well as leafy greens made our newest collection of planters look oh so adorable!

Desk Planter

The quaint nursery can be visited anytime before 6 in the evening, and is easily accessible from all basic modes of transport. The first thing we noticed as we entered, were some furry friends that we immediately fell in love with and secondly, a beautiful distressed swing that seemed to tie the whole place together. The entire vibe had us in awe. With well over 500 species of plants, the place has a very calming yet energetic atmosphere and everywhere we looked, we saw greens that we’ve never heard of! We began our day taking a few rounds of the space in its entirety and then picked out the plants that would go perfectly with our planters. Then began the potting process with the talented team at Vriksha that helped us understand the care and maintenance of these succulents as well. This mainly includes avoiding harsh sunlight and watering them moderately about alternate days. 

Flower Pots

Our collaboration with Vriksha comes at the best possible time. The rains have hit the coast and we’re all ready for that greenery. These planters are perfect for everyday work nooks and bring much needed freshness to the professional environment or seamlessly blend into your decor as Table Accents

We're doing a giveaway! Take home a plant from Vriksha, with every order of desk planters you place at our Bandra store! Offer valid till stocks last - so make sure you get their on time!

There are people who love summer; others come to life in the bracing chill of winter. The monsoons, a wet grey time, are such a relief and hold a special meaning for us Indians. The rain is rendered in music, art, food and emotions. We must be the only nation that romanticizes the season. More so in the first week of its onslaught.

monsoon season

We all love the monsoons. The dramatic clouds building up, ominous and grey. The tall buildings catching a flash of light and shining pallidly in a brave sliver of sun. Most of all, there is the efflorescence of green. Even before the first drops of rain fall, the vivid transparent green of plant life is pregnant with the promise of new life.


“Slanting silver ropes slammed into loose earth,
ploughing it up like gunfire.”

— The God of Small Things, Arundhati Roy

Freedom Tree joyfully celebrates its Monsoon 2019 Collection - Secret Garden - marking the return of the rains, with its lush greenery and abundant moisture. Savor the discovery of Pockets of Green in the urban environment, the moments where rain and wind rustle through the palms outside your window, and you snuggle in with a warm snack after a day of play. Secret Garden evokes the small spaces of cool and green you might find at the end of a quiet by-lane or create in your home against the background of rainy skies.

cushions & decorative pillows

Secret Garden invites you to create Pockets of Green in your home. Quiet corners where you can retreat and snuggle up with a cherished book, surround yourself with Lush Greenery, and while away the hours contemplating the monsoon skies. The range features over a dozen new Textiles prints  and illustrative designs for the bedroom and living room, raw and natural furniture including the explosive Molotov Bar and Sideboard Series. Rainshine is a playful range of handpainted ceramic dinnerware and serverware with freewheeling strokes that evoke a day of playing in the rain. Deliciously colored ceramic desk planters make the perfect addition to your kitchen window or veranda. A miniature forest comes indoors and we live again in an enchanted world!

storage cabinet & table

As always, the hero of our collection are our Screen Printed Textiles - all designed in our trend studio in Mumbai, and printed locally.  The textural feel of different fabrics and hypnotic illustrations transport you to your Secret Garden in the monsoons, with options for everyone!

upholstery fabric

The lush botanical look features the sensational Panai print, named after the celestial palm in Tamil. Sink into a moss and leaf covered forest floor with our textured tweeds and green prints. To bring an urban and modern touch to a tropical home, look no further than the Salaka print, which is reminiscent of timeless handmade weaves. The Secret Pool print invites you in with cool water lapping gently on this modern design. Liquid graphic forms catch the glint of light.

Secret Garden Cushions

The Rainshine dinnerware collection encapsulates a trend for healthy eating and casual dining. Each piece is hand painted in the colors of life giving rainwaters, and bursts of sunshine. Designed in watery colors of liquid blue, glazed green, delicious mango, lush lime and indigo infusion, the strokes freewheel across the handpainted ceramic line. A happy collection that speaks of family meals and transitions of time;  of growing up and greening, of playtime and plating up.

serveware & platter

Rain and water is also about reflection and mirror images. A quiet internal reflection, a moment of contemplation. It is mesmerizing to stare into ponds and see the mirrored image of a landscape, extending it in more than one dimension. When the sun shines through clouds, light reflects off pools of water, filling the atmosphere with unexpected passing reflections. Secret Garden also features an all new series of Lighting and Mirrors to cut the gloom and reflect light into your indoor sanctuary. Superbly crafted modern industrial lights with touches of nature and fluid whimsy will add an elegant frame to any modern home.

Monsoon is here with its operatic theater that pours down with glint of grey gunmetal in quick, silvery smooth action. It not only is a visual sensation but assaults the auditory and relentlessly infuses our senses with fragrance. It is time to renew, to explore, and celebrate cozy moments in our homes and in our hearts. Join us in this ode to the Great Indian Season with Secret Garden Monsoon 2019. 

 

Secret Garden is available in Store and Online now.

COOL AND COLLECTED

May 16, 2019

water body

As another leaf of the season turns, summer sunshine knocks on your door and blushing gulmohar curiously glances from the windows. It’s time to dream away of a vacation in the mountains or by the beachside – Freedom Tree’s COOL AND COLLECTED range has got you covered. With wistful memories of the ocean, the sea breeze calling your name, fields of swaying flowers and grounding elements of the earth, welcome the fresh hues of blues.

cushion and pillow covers

A medley of abstract lines, handsome checks, and florals will add playfulness and sophistication to your space, with unabashed verve. Allow the impeccable craftsmanship and global aesthetics to naturally and effortlessly style your space.

It’s time to pause, put your feet up and sip on aam panna in your very own summer home – one that is chic and cozy in equal measure. Our range features breathable fabrics, vibrant and down-to-earth wood, cane and rope furniture, intricate ceramics and contemporary lamps – with denim and indigo hues playing hide and seek across each category.

sheer fabrics

Snuggle into the soft colors of our Mohur cushions or take a ride back to your childhood with our frayed Denim Drift cushions. Mohur is a hero print from our last collection HERE IS NOW, and makes an appearance in this one as well – in calming hues of blue. Soften the mood of your study with the Urban Cool throw, with reversible fine pin stripes. Tie it all together with the Bluesette rug, or a daring floral look. The conventional charm of ticking stripes and tartan checks is hard to miss – our upholstery, sheers, throws and cushions are absolute head turners you may want to introduce in your space. Our versatile yet cohesive collection gives you the flexibility to experiment and create different looks for your nooks time and again.

Considering blue is the color of this collection, there’s a lot you can do – think deep blue rugs with soft denim floor cushions propped on the floor, soft floral sheers and hand painted ceramics for your living room. Dress down your bedroom into sea stripe linen in white and blue, and you wouldn’t want to step out of the cozy haven. Sit by the window seat munching on your favorite watermelon and feta salad from our Kobe salad plate – as the Inky Blossom sheers allow the sunlight to just tip toe in.

The delicately contoured ceramicware with organic strokes are set to add joy to everyday moments and make special occasions even more memorable. Whether it’s a small gathering, your family or just you looking to savor a cup of coffee, our collection takes care of all. Bold strokes make an appearance in the serverware, whimsical patterns are the defining feature of our vases and the classic style lends élan to our glassware. Pass around the Malabar and Andaman snack platters cum cake stands, and contrast them with the delicate Kyoto ceramics as you host that tea party you’ve been waiting for.

server and platter

 Every summer day by the breezy seaside can be a reality – create a canopy in your balcony with sheers from our collection, bring out our Tropica chairs, stretch your toes and listen to your peppy playlist. Our minimalist rope furniture is an ode to the 60s, with a modern twist of delicious color. Now curl up and bring out your favorite summer read, or invite friends over for an evening of hors d'oeuvres and coolers. It’s time to embrace the covetous looks that come your way for the Hypnotique bar cabinet in weathered blue, a vintage chic show-stealer from our collection – so Friday night get-togethers don’t have to wait any longer! 

The COOL AND COLLECTED look is available in stores and online, ready to call your home its own. Dream in colors borrowed from the sea, sky, and earth this summer. Feel truly at home, with Freedom Tree.

It's that time of year when everyone is on the move. School's out, and it's time to escape the heat, or head straight towards the beach! Whether it's the waves you seek, or the quiet calm of nature, or discovering new cultures, we're all feeling that wanderlust.

In a textile production unit such as ours, making cushions, bed-covers, and other home linens leave behind "off-cuts" of small pieces of fabric that often go unused and are eventually sold for scrap. In a bid to achieve zero-waste, we're up-cycling our cut fabrics into one-of-a-kind kits for all your travel needs. 

Our beautiful prints are about to get a new lease on life.
