Godrej Interio Visit

Godrej, on hearing this, what is the first thing that strikes your brain? The old big iron almirahs. As a kid, we were so fascinated by the huge cabinet that we used to sleekly open the almirah and wonder at the spacious wardrobe. How our Mummy used to shelf their sarees, our woolens, the valuables and even our natraj pencils and erasers in it. Everything which we couldn't find in the open shelves were assumed to be locked by our mothers in the only Godrej in the home. This is how I remember Godrej. 

And when I received a call from Blogadda telling that I'm shortlisted for the Godrej Interio activity , I was elated to visit the store of one of the prestigious and trusted brands of India. 

Godrej Interio Store
Unit No. 29, 30 and 32
Super Area 2517 sq. ft. 2nd Floor, JMD Regent Arcade,MG Road, Sector-28
Beside Sahara Mall,
Gurgaon - 122009, Haryana
  
The venue was easy to locate. When I reached there, the entire second floor provided a glimpse of Godrej and just Godrej. The store at the very first sight itself looked beautiful. The furniture pieces were all well arranged to give a cosy comfy feel. I was welcomed by the store manager. The way they treated their customers was appreciable. All were greeted and offered Bisleri water bottles, yes the pure mineral water. He asked me for tea/coffee. I denied but he insisted to give it a try, "we will brew the best for you." And yes, it was damn good. 

Godrej Living room
Well I was the first to arrive and sip the coffee. The store was already occupied with customers. Every new arriver seemed a blogger to me but they were customers most of the time. After a wait of good fifteen minutes, a few familiar and a few unfamiliar faces intruded inside the store and I joined their gang. The bloggers occupied a squishy couch and chit chatted after a long time in person. Served with snacks and coffee, everyone found the store quite cool occupied with different furniture sets. 

WE - The Bloggers
While we were mingled in our talks, the  guest celebrity Aishwarya Sakhuja made her way into the store.

Aishwarys Sakhuja
She was given a warm welcome by the store. Soon our activity began. She told how the Godrej team did the make-over of her home in Gurgaon. A video was played which showed the before-after images of her living room. 

The video being played.
She was contented with the make over of her house by Godrej. She praised the Godrej team for their job. Her drab living room was filled again with life by the Godrej products and their perfect arrangement all going hand in hand with the  new wall colors and furniture pieces. 
Aishwarya answering our queries
Then she threw herself open to the queries of bloggers, We were all set to fire our questions and douse the curiosity. From her army man father to her frequent relocations, from her favourite furniture piece to how she convinced her father to let the old furniture get replaced, from the various choices provided by Godrej to her zeroing in on one final choice were some of the queries she answered in detail. She admired the quickness and readiness of Godrej towards its customers. The entire makeover of her living room was done in just three and a half days which was so quick and to the best, Godrej didnt ask for temporary evacuation of the house. It did all its renovation work so efficiently that it caused no hiatus in the daily routine of the house members. Overall she was satisfied with the Godrej furniture and their cooperation.

Spacious Colorful Almirahs
After that we were taken on the store tour by the store manager. The different cabinets, couches, sofas, beds, dining tables were shown to us. The best thing in the furniture was they all gave a perfect finished look and the shiny surface appealed to the eyes. They were termite-resistant and rust-free. 

Pink Sofa-Bed

These days when people struggle for space in the house, Godrej presented its furniture to their rescue. The sofa-cum-bed with a unique click-clack system was a perfect example. The piece gets adjusted to five different resting positions giving you the comfortable posture to lie down. 

Design your own Cabinet
The portable almirahs were the best. They could be easily dismantled and the customer was given a choice to design his own almirah with the cardboard pieces which Godrej promises to deliver. This was the best I liked, the freedom to design your own piece.

King-Bed

Oh!! Its so spacious
The different beds were on display with cool colours and storage boxes inside them which opened easily just with a slight nudge. No more labour required to remove the bedding and hold the heavy ply to reach the underneath storage area.


White marble Dining-table
The different dining tables with rotating chairs were on display. A white marble dining table was well designed. The vanity mirrors with spacious decks were admirable. The square mirror was especially adored for its look and feel. 

Dine at me!!!
The unseen and one of its kind sofa came as a surprise to all of us when we were asked to sit on it and experience its music features. Yes, this sofa has a unique audio player system with the varied options of phone booster, bluetooth, audio jack and memory card. So how do you want to play your music while relaxing on this comfortable sofa. It also had a small storage area well hidden inside its beauty. This sofa also had click-clack system to set the head-resting position at different angles. Dont worry, the kids in the home will do no harm to it even if they keep playing with it endlessly.

Musical Sofa!!!


Bush in ambush
White lilies 
The added accessory vases added beauty to the furniture. The visit to the store was really good. The Godrej people also told that they will soon launch a scheme asking the customers to dump their old furniture and buy a new piece for it for no penny. And soon they will start accepting Flipkart vouchers too. So start piling your vouchers and old pieces to buy your much needed Godrej piece.

I want to see sunrise!!!
The Godrej, a name so old, a brand so trustworthy always tries to serve its customer with the best and affordable and it was all evident at the Godrej Interio. Thank-you Blogadda for giving us a chance to look at the Godrej products and Godrej family so closely.

The Godrej Team


¡Salud!
