Such bright colors, I say!

And a giveaway!

It must be September on An Indian Summer!

Vidushi had always loved art and design and kind of knew, right from school that she would end up doing it for a living. Born and raised in New Delhi, she graduated in BFA in Communication Design from the Parsons School of Design and worked in New York during her formative years. After returning to India, Vidushi created and started the metallic world of élan. Vidushi is passionate about the tactile, the messy, and the raw – designs and colors that transcend the mundane and bring joy to your everyday life.

élan creates refreshingly happy moments with style and panache. The vivid colors and delightful patterns is the first thing that catches your eye, and the very well-crafted objects in metal, bring an instant smile on your face. élan’s lifestyle products range from trays, stools, napkin rings, lanterns, buckets, boxes, gardening tools, bird homes…and the list goes on! Each piece is lovingly crafted by hand.

Swapna Thomas said...

I so want the Elan organizing products! I am an organizing maniac and it is so hard to find cute and functional organizing products in India. I absolutely adore Elan's organizing collection. And this is my favorite pick http://www.livingwithelan.co/products/elan-method-file-holder

Preeti said...

Almost everything on the website instantly gets added onto your "I want that !" list....but this three tier cake stand is just awesome...I've just started experimenting with baking and this would be perfect for cupcakes and muffins !


surabhi said...

I have been eyeing the bird house and lovely homes and garden accessories since long ..back from shopo days love most of the products

Reshma at colorcanopy.blogspot.com said...

Its the birdhouses! They are way too cute with that li'l birdie! http://www.livingwithelan.co/products/elan-bird-house-with-a-lil-birdie

Shilpi Burman said...

No one can pick just one! But if I just had to it would be the 4-bucket caddy http://www.livingwithelan.co/products/elan-4-bucket-caddy. In pink its an absolutely stunner and I so want it for my new studio space!

padma said...

All the products are so so good. Colorful and will add gaiety to any place. The gardening tools and buckets are so nice too. The one which caught my eye is this one, the lovely multi-purpose box, in white, which reminds me of intricate work done with white lace. Suitable to give a favourite person as a gift, or suitable to have it yourself as a storage box. Simplicity and intricate beauty combined together http://www.livingwithelan.co/.../elan-chantilly-gift-box

Rushme said...

Oh I've seen these products around on FB but didn't know they were from élan. Absolutely love all the stuff there...vibrant colors to live colorfully.. My work area at home will be complete with http://www.livingwithelan.co/products/elan-magnet-board-with-4-spring-magnets
The magnetic board is what I'd like to have. Great n very creative work Elan!

Oh wow...An Indian summer and élan .... two of my favourite places on the net.....together. I have a lot of products from élan in my studio... would love the mughal storage box to store all my paints in http://www.livingwithelan.co/collections/organizing-with-elan/products/elan-mughal-storage-box. Thanks for the the giveaway guys.

Amrit Ammu said...


This is my favourite product !!!! :) Just waiting wide eyed to grab this product soooon :) Hats off to the creator. Such innovative collection !

Piyali said...

My heart goes for élan chantilly gift box - this is absolutely different from the rest of the products and looks extremely elegant and classy. It has a refineness to its design and the pristine white color makes it further beautiful and attractive. I have always been fond of filigree work, but the way it is done and thought out for a gift box, that's really amazing. Am just scared that if i give it to someone dear the gift within the box may not match up to the beautiful box and will lose its charm in front of it. The box itself is a gift, just give it away to your friend with a lovely handmade note wrapped in satin cloth inside it. What do you say? http://www.livingwithelan.co/.../elan-chantilly-gift-box

Also the Dibbah the storage box is lovely:

Divya Dugar said...

Another visual treat for our senses.

I love metal trunks in all the shapes and sizes. There's something about old school luggage, it brings back the joy of an era when the journey was as important as the destination. One of my fav products will be this compact metal trunk.


Would love to stack books, board games and knick knacks for our next sunday fun picnic to lodhi garden.

I am sure it is going to be a attention grabber. Some vintage fun.

Miss Frangipani said...

I'm on a metal trunk spree lately and have been painting the ones I have at home. Would love to add these colourful ones to my collection (and solve my storage woes)! http://www.livingwithelan.co/products/elan-buxa-metal-trunk
