"proud of the way they (Elan) have transformed our interiors. From that arched Scandinavian lamp to the majestic leather walk-in closets they designed for us - we have been getting a lot of 'wows.'
- Vedant Kanoi

Sharmilee Sagar is the creative brain behind the Elan design house of furniture and interiors. 
As a child always playing with colours and her mother's fabrics, Sharmilee observed with rapt interest as architects and designers went about designing her parents' home. The story goes that the rug she chose for her room, eventually found pride of place at the family lounge because as her father says "it had fantastic details and was just too lovely to limit to only her room."
Sharmilee's love for detail and design has been honed by an education in styling and aesthetics in Europe and through hours spent at design museums and seminars. She has worked with Michelin starred restaurants and cruise lines across Europe. And in India she pioneered lifestyle furniture design and manufacture as founder member of Proform in 1999. There she led 360 degree furniture design and turnkey interior design projects.
Keen to create her own design space that delivered complete designed interior solutions she set up Elan in 2010. With an in-house furniture manufacture facility as well, Elan provides the combined aesthetics of interior design with allied engineering, architecture and furniture design to transform residential, corporate and retail spaces across the country.
