Discover the joy of coming home to a space that welcomes you through our latest collaboration with the multi-faceted visual artist and painter, Naimal Khawar. She initially acquired fame after venturing into acting and was recognized for her roles in “Verna” and “Anaa”. However, visual art is her true calling and she now dedicates most of her time to painting. Her craft is visualized through brushstrokes, colours and compositions that co-exist in perfect equilibrium, capturing the essence of life’s intricate tapestry.
Together, we have curated a Limited Edition collection that embodies the essence of comfort, trends, and serenity. SAPPHIRE Home X NAIMAL KHAWAR is not a mere collaboration, it's an invitation to explore the ease and happiness that only your home can provide. Naimal has curated captivating artworks on a range of cushion covers and bed linen that are designed to vitalize your living space.
We truly believe that your home should be a sanctuary, a place where you can relax, rejuvenate and be yourself. Every piece designed explores the transitional seasons of life interplayed with four main themes that are explored throughout; Delight, Tranquility, Harmony and New Beginnings.
So, let's delve into this exciting new collection and join the artist as she takes us through the creative process behind each design, sprinkled with fun insights about her life along the way.
With leaves surrendering to the symphony of gold and ruby, the air becomes a gentle envelope of crispness, serving as an effervescent reminder that autumn is here. The fleeting beauty of the season lies in the fallen leaves and Naimal beautifully savours these moments with ‘Delight’.
“It holds a special place in my heart because it celebrates the magic of autumn. Inspired by the everchanging season, it showcases all my favourite birds and invites a feeling of cosy warmth into your home. It’s essentially like bringing the essence of autumn indoors, reminding us of the joy and prosperity that the season brings”.
For Naimal, art has always been more than just a hobby; it’s a profound expression of the soul.
“Art has always been my passion and I believe that our living spaces are reflective of our personality. This is why I have collaborated with SAPPHIRE HOME, and I've designed four beautiful pieces for you all.”
