Wagma Design, Tell us the story behind this name?
Initially it was named as D’asign Source but 3 years back it was rebranded as Wagma Designs, it’s an Arabic word meaning morning freshness and we strongly believe that we bring freshness in each and every space with our design intent. Nevertheless, my daughter’s name is Wagmi so as someone would take care of their own child, cater to its needs, and be there in their times of trouble and need, I have done the same with my firm.
How you manage the local sensibility or local tradition in the Wagma Designs?
In a span of 15 years, the whole paradigm of interior designing has shifted. There has been an immense growth in the varieties of themes and styles for interior designing, and more so the awareness of clients towards the variety. With such rapid growth, I feel it’s important to have some traditionality maintained in what we do. This helps not only retain that ethnic touch in the work we do, but also gives us the signature design of blending modernity and ethnicity that we strive for.
Tell us about the vision and goal of Wagma Designs?
Vision for Wagma Designs is creating joyful experiences through designing and execution of spaces having world class interior with Indian flavour.
Goal for Wagma Designs in next three years is to be known for – most innovative and creative team, providing guaranteed saving of more than 10% of project cost, best qualitative delivery processes, zero escalated budget, training to maintain their property after handover

Any Message you want to share with those who want to make DESIGN as their career?
