The Website is an online platform which provides users with a marketplace and community, trying to bring together everyone in the Indian Interior Industry. From professionals who want to sell their products, designers and architects who want to highlight their portfolio to buyers and users who are looking for creative products and inspiration, we have it all.
The journey started in June 2013, when we were trying to find a way to give customised products to everyone easily. We contacted various manufacturers, researched the web, tried multiple stores but couldn’t find an easy way to do it. Though eventually we found a solution, we realised one thing in this exercise: There’s no one online place in India where users can go to find inspiration for home decor and share their guides too. And this is what led to the creation of Floma. It took a while to brainstorm the idea and design all the features, but we’re glad we were able to launch Floma Beta version in December 2014. The potential for Floma platform is huge and we will continue developing it.
On Floma, Users can read interior design guides, see projects uploaded by other professionals, buy products, request custom services, etc. and professionals and sellers can sell products, upload their guides, projects, create their pro profile, etc.
