Based out of San Francisco, California, Indian-born designer Nima Oberoi heads and designs the wildly successful signature home collection, Lunares. Inspired by the artistically progressive city of her birth, Nima is known for her contemporary designs that are luxurious yet affordable: from velvets to luxurious leathers, rich silks and tactile fabrics. Born and raised in Chandigarh, India, Nima can attribute the inspiration of her innovative designs to her culturally rich and architecturally historic birthplace. Located at the base of the Himalayas, the city of Chandigarh is the conceptual creation of the renowned French architect Le Corbusier who was commissioned by Nehru in 1953 to build a temple of modern India. It was here that Nima's talent for combining artistic modernism with the traditional craftsmanship of the past was born. In 1986, her fascination with world cultures brought her to the United States. Soon thereafter, the city of San Francisco became her new home. During the next few years, she established herself as a leading designer of fashion jewelry. Her innate talent and rich blend of cultural influences were apparent from the beginning, making her new venture an immediate success. The rapid and positive response to her first home collection was only news of more good things to come. Nima soon saw the potential of applying her success in fashion jewelry into the realm of home décor and, in October 1996, her lifestyle-driven company, Lunares, was born. Her goal: to create a collection of contemporary designs that reflected a cosmopolitan and urban lifestyle while still being crafted in honest materials such as sensuous sand cast aluminum, tactile fabrics, leather and glass beads. Lunares remains devoted to the over 300 artisans and their families for whom the company provides employment and sustenance at their factory in Rajasthan, India, as well as the staff at the San Francisco headquarters. Founded 19 years ago, Lunares is completely family-owned and totally vertical. Nima's brother, Mr. C.S. Oberoi, handles factory operations while Nima manages the design and sales based in San Francisco. They provide training for their artisans, and housing for many of them. A percentage of sales proceeds from LunaresHome go towards providing schooling for the workers children.
