Founded in October 2015, his firm provides versatile interior designs to its clients that are not only appealing to the eyes but also ensure optimum utilization of the space. This involves both home space as well as commercial spaces.

Purav is excited about his entrepreneurial journey so far. He says,
“One of the main reasons I am self-employed is that I find it difficult, if not impossible, to fit into the corporate mould, work for someone else, or work on someone else’s schedule. It might be difficult to persuade people to invest in your plans or recognise the importance of your professional objectives when you have fantastic ideas.”
With an aim to utilise every space in the expensive city of Mumbai, Purav uses his skills and expertise to make the most out of every square inch of the house. This leaves his clients delighted as all of their requirements are met while remaining inside the limits of the available space, which would also have a spectacular interior.
Purav Interiors specializes in a tailored touch home. They create made-to-measure wardrobes, kitchens, cupboards or an original piece of bespoke furniture that’s best suited to the available space. Besides offering custom style to its client, they guarantee custom comfort as well. With their luxury couture furniture, you can adjust your headrest & footrest to an exact position for maximum comfort. Their Luxury series gives the flexibility to comfortably entertain guests and then lounge with ease after they leave, all in a manner that one would opt.
Every entrepreneur has his own share of struggles and Purav is no exception. In his initial days as a designer, one of the most challenging task was client acquisition. It’s tough for people to accept new ideas and trust the efforts put in by an amateur company. But, blessings came in form of a family friend, whose work he started in order to demonstrate his worth. Following the conclusion of the project, requests flowed in from additional clients as a result of their recommendation and his superb design work.
Being recipient of “The Best Design” for the yoga studio located at Bicton UK by the University of Bath, UK, followed by “Mo-Bro Gold Award” for November fund raising at University of Bath, has its own prestige element. To all young entrepreneurs in this field, Purav has a set of clear-cut advice –
“Keep trying and never give up. As an entrepreneur, you face new difficulties and learn new things every day. This experience will assist you in becoming a better entrepreneur.”
