Initially a stay-at-home Mom, Mrs. Meenu Agrawal is now the Chief Stylist and Creative-Head of all our designs and themes. Her creativity and passion for home decor and interiors found an outlet in her own home, where she was creating custom themes for their in-house events and relatives’ needs long before Style de Tisch was born!
Now, with the help of her daughter and Co-Founder Anmol, Meenu wants to bring the concept of dining-together back to the Indian household. Her ultimate aim is to bring people together again, and allow meal-times to reflect the central role they play in our lives and special moments.
Ms. Anmol Agrawal is our Director and Boss-In-Chief for all things management and business. Equipped with a law degree, trained by British Etiquette Consultant @emmadupont_etiquette herself, and possessing a formidable intellect, she returned home after her graduation and saw her mother’s creative talents through a new lens, realising immediately that this was uncharted territory. She also loved watching her mother’s efforts pay off in the hanger-wide smiles of their guests, with each guest leaving their house with a special place in their heart for Meenu.
Anmol’s vision is to enable every household in India to live up to their culture of ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’. Being a millennial kid and having lived outside home for most of her adult life, she understands better than most the value of time in everyday lives. She has crafted Style de Tisch therefore, to cater to the needs of every individual, regardless of the time or effort they might have to spare.
