East’s journey started in 1996, but the core idea was born much earlier when Calcutta was the hub of Colonial India and the city was known for its wide variety of fascinating antique furniture. It all started with the love and passion that the Bhasin family shared for antique furniture. Initially, it started as a hobby to make replicas of antique furniture, but soon, it transformed into a full-fledged business, as more and more customers expressed their love for such furniture.
