Ekta Khanna Design Studio
"Ekta undoubtedly excels at her job - professional, talented and transparent at the same time; with a sharp eye for detail. She started out with communicating and ‘listening’ to each one of us individually and then patiently conceptualized our ‘wants’ and tastes to our satisfaction. Thus, the farmhouse is an amalgamation of the ‘classic’ and the ‘modern’; creatively and subtly woven together with a sense of ‘oneness’ and ‘openness’ at the same time. Last but not the least, she delivered as she promised - in the stipulated time period and budget; and is still readily available for suggestions and advice."

"We have had the pleasure of working with Ekta in designing and furnishing our bareshell house in Sobha International City, Gurugram. She spent quality time with us understanding our (often confusing) requirements and came up with multiple options suiting our tastes. Blending tradition with modernity , she helped us home onto right service providers to include soft and hard furnishings, carpentry, painting and decoupage, drapery, electricals and so on and supervised their work delivery right till the very end. Always a call away, she came up with wonderful cost effective options at every stage of converting the house into a delectable 'home', it is today. She has been a wonderful designer and person to work with and we surely love her work. Most highly recommended."

"I have had the pleasure of working with Ekta on the remodeling of my home. She is an absolutely thorough professional, the rare species which is hard-to-find nowadays. An architect and designer should be someone with an eye for detail and, to me, that is non-negotiable. With Ekta and her team, I had peace and fairly early on was convinced that she would think of everything that was necessary. We had several meetings before starting and discussed the look I wanted, the changes that were essential and more so keeping in mind our requirements. Remodeling is different from doing something from scratch and not easy task, particularly when you live in the same premises. My work is such that I was able to leave for extended periods so her team had free access and operated with utmost care and very professionally. I was not around to supervise every step but that was not necessary. I have immense trust in her ability and, to me, her strength lies in being able to do a deep dive, to paint the big picture while looking at every small piece and, most importantly, doing it with calmness. That, in my view, is her biggest strength. In this line, it is so easy to lose cool, but her calm, polite and firm nature is something that is a sure recipe for success! Last, but not the least, whenever I wanted to do something fast she would convince me that my approach would lead to a “rushed” outcome and not aesthetically the right result, she would prevail upon me in her gentle manner. So, apart from her professional capabilities, implicit trust in her skills was key and I give her full credit in ensuring that was built very early on. Ekta is someone who really walks the talk and that has been invaluable for me."

"I have worked with Ekta over the last 10 years on both residential and commercial projects and she is extremely talented. She has a great modern design aesthetic and is able to translate that into execution with ease. I would highly recommend her!"
