As the visionary leader of Essentia Environments, Monica Chawla has etched an illustrious career path in the interior design industry, stemming from her passion for design and an unyielding commitment to excellence.

Her connection to the creative industry began through graphic design, a realm that ignited her creative spark.

However, it was this initial exposure that ultimately led her to discover her true calling: interior design. Monica's creative side is marked by her ability to blend various design elements seamlessly, creating spaces that resonate with beauty, functionality, and emotional depth.

Her creativity doesn't stop at aesthetics; it extends to her innovative approach to crafting unique experiences through design.

Moreover, she understands that spaces are not just about design; they are about creating environments that enrich lives and nurture well-being.

This philosophy is evident in her designs, which harmoniously blend comfort, functionality, and aesthetics to provide clients with spaces that resonate on a personal and emotional level.

On the other hand, Hardesh brings a distinct engineering perspective to the world of interior design.

With his background and expertise in engineering, he plays a crucial role in translating creative visions into tangible, functional spaces.

Hardesh's technical side complements Monica's creative flair, resulting in a harmonious fusion of aesthetics and functionality.

This is often reflected in the meticulous planning, precise execution, and technical prowess that underlie each project.

Hardesh's attention to detail and problem-solving skills ensure that every design concept is translated into a space that not only looks stunning but also functions seamlessly in real-life scenarios.

Monica and Hardesh’s design odyssey started with creating stunning homes and offices in Moscow, both for herself and her friends.

What began as passion projects soon evolved into a full-fledged, professional career in interior design.

With a relentless pursuit of improvement, evolution, and continuous learning, Monica embarked on her remarkable journey, always seeking to add something new to her repertoire every single day.

Upon relocating to India after 11 years in Russia, they faced challenges in aligning her work, given the difference in design scenarios. Undeterred, they started by exploring furniture design and gradually scaled up.
