Nishant Gupta: A Visionary That “Simply” Founded a Dominant Interior Designing Brand

Owning a “dream home” is every individual’s dream and when it comes true, one needs it to be designed to be exactly how they want. As much as exhausting the job of finding the correct space is, living in a comfortable, tastefully designed yet affordable place is now “simple” with Simply Interiors. The interior designing brand has showcased an exceptional growth since its inception in 2017 delivering quality solutions to the customers.  Headquartered in Bangalore, Karnataka with active presence in Hyderabad and Pune as well, the company specializes in interior design, home design, and Interior Decoration.

 The journey of the company from its foundation is inspiring as the company was founded by Nishant Gupta, a man from the complete non-design background but with high entrepreneurial spirits.

“I am an ex-serviceman from Indian Navy. After completing my MBA from Xavier Institute of Management (XIM), Bhubaneswar, I worked with ITC and Britannia in various sales and marketing profiles. I entered the world of entrepreneurship and became a serial entrepreneur; I have done business in food, grocery as well as a marketing consultancy. Interiors started 5 years back with another brand which later became Simply Interiors.” Nishant stated his entrepreneurial journey.

Passionate about interior designing, Nishant Gupta further shares his views on being associated with the company “I love the fact that this is a continuously changing industry. The material that is being used everywhere today may not exist tomorrow. So many possibilities exist just in terms of how you can help a family get its dream home. The smiles of our customers at the end of a project say it all.”

Practical Designs: The USP of Simply Interiors

“Our designs are practical. I have seen designers go overboard in designing things which in the end become completely impractical. What’s the point of wasting space in a bookshelf under the pretext of “design” when the purpose of the unit is to keep books inside a bedroom, eventually increasing the cost for the customer?”

Putting his vision into reality, Nishant with Simply Interiors turns fuss-free and simple designs into reality and creates high-quality living space solutions whether it is designing a luxury suite or a simple task of finishing bathroom and kitchen fittings.

Team and Clientele

The “Simply Interiors Team” is focused and dedicated to delivering the “best in class” services as they collectively bring their experience to the table. With its prime focus on residences, the company largely deals with the “IT Crowds” of Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Pune. The company plans to expand its functions in a phased manner to the other cities across the country. The brand is strategically aiming to achieve its goals and avoids additional manpower unless necessary to ensure cost-effectiveness. This helps the brand keep a “lean structure” as they can pass the cost benefits as “lower prices” to the customers.

The company focuses on providing affordable interior solutions. But the term “affordable” does not restrict their services, as they also serve the high-end clientele with the premium and expensive products. The company offers its services and products to a diverse set of clients looking for different spaces.

“For a person who buys a Rs.40 lakh 3 BHK, the definition of affordable is different from a person who spends Rs.2 crore on a 3BHK. We cater to both the people and provide affordable solutions to both of them.” Nishant Gupta, Founder, Simply Interiors

Recent Projects for Simply Interiors: Designing Luxury Spaces

Simply Interiors recently designed a guest lounge for a premium apartment complex. The team planned the lounge to give the impression of being in an art gallery with paintings all around along with a cafe setting. The brand has successfully finished several villas which are luxurious and aesthetic as the team envisaged.

Experience: Key to Running Successful Business

Founder of various successful start-ups including Simply Interiors, Nishant Gupta started his entrepreneurial career and have achieved success in various industries. As an entrepreneur, Nishant believes “A business is not about monetary transactions. It’s about getting together the right set of people with the right skills in the right places and giving them the right opportunities. The ability to identify these things is what comes with experience.”

Business Mantra

Upright trading of services for the payment received is the business mantra that the interior designing brand has been following since its inception and 1000+ projects across various cities.

“We don’t charge based on the payment capacity of a customer. We charge based on the cost of work which may be same for a particular wardrobe in a small 2BHK or a large bungalow. Our business mantra is to stay ethical and transparent in our dealings.”

Leading the Whole Team towards Success

“I feel that for any entrepreneur, the biggest satisfaction comes from the fact that he is ensuring that not just his family but many other families can have bread on the table. We have a large number of direct employees and a proportionately larger number of people indirectly related to Simply Interiors and it’s a satisfying feeling to see them all succeed.” Nishant shares his wisdom from his entrepreneurial journey.

Future Plans: Investments and New Launch

Visionary Nishant Gupta shares his views on the plans for the company in the upcoming years “As far as Simply Interiors is concerned, we plan to scale up their back end with new factories and launch in new cities in the upcoming year. We are currently exploring the market for investments. Plans to launch a couple of other brands in interiors are also in the pipeline which will complement Simply Interiors in the time to come.”

Practice, the Key to Success: Advice from a Seasoned Leader

“Learn and work hard. Whatever is taught in colleges is simply not enough if you want to succeed. Learn on the job. Go to sites and don’t try to just sit behind a laptop. Check out new things. Go to the shops to see what’s new. See how a carpenter does things. The key to success is in knowing all these things.” Nishant Gupta, the experienced visionary and leader with experience in start-ups and establishing successful brands shared his advice for the new aspirants entering the Interior Designing industry.
