The Raintree is first an oasis of colonial charm on a lovely garden in the heart of Bangalore. And then a lifestyle store. The most charming thing about it is a much-desired and rare-to-come-by philosophy that has been put to practice.
With less than a handful of stores, Raintree adds so much more joy to shopping. And after the bill has been paid and the bags picked up, the little cafeteria is a perfect joint to freshen up.
No parking hassles, a lovely green lawn to soothe your eyes and if your lucky, you might just be able to catch some unique brands in their dedicated spaces for exhibition. Yes, this is how shopping was supposed to be.
We picked up some lovely wooden furniture, antique and restored – a study table, an almirah and a chest of drawers – pictures of them in their home, coming up!
The store is located next to Windsor Manor Hotel, Bangalore
