There were various food pop-ups for visitors to India Design ID 2017 and had a wide array of eating options to choose from.
Of special mention here are two exhibits that I liked the most in the entire event – the Exhibits by Klove and Jaipur.
The glass sculptures and lighting effects created by Klove were marvelous and I would certainly love to install atleast one of them in near future in my house.
Also the great work done by Jaipur should be highly appreciated. They are encouraging local artisan by promoting hand woven rugs and carpets for your living rooms.
