The Planning Stage
Arcedior had the fantastic opportunity to create the iconic structure of this palatial villa that portrays the a la mode essence unified with the code of exotic luxury. The project was given a kick-off in February 2018 that involved client meetings and requirement analysis. The high-end project began with a vision of the designer to build an unparalleled foundation that blended modern luxury with the Italian style. He wanted the villa to be one of a kind and Arcedior, with its years of experience, was optimistic about delivering an incomparable choice of materials and quality. Followed by this, the client, along with the Arcedior team, visited many factories in China and finalized the costing and order there itself. In its entirety, the client’s satisfaction was the core motive.
Working With Arcedior Made Sourcing A Breeze
Arcedior lent a helping hand to Shravan Khati in sourcing global sustainable decor products. With our vast networking chain of suppliers and vendors, sourcing the righteous products for the project became efficacious and trouble-free. The team adopted Moodboard – like-presentation technique for the procurement of furniture pieces before visiting the country. This scheme bore out fruitful results as the team was able to source from preeminent suppliers and more niche independent brands. Furthermore, the selected furniture was finely sourced and procured from China. Thus, sourcing with Arcedior saved designers’ handsome time that further helped him focus effectively on creative work. This collectively led to choosing the righteous furniture and delivering the result before the expected deadline.
Interior Designer Shravan Khati was in continuous contact with the Arcedior team. He introduced the project owner to our sourcing and procurement services ranging from inspiration to installation. As acknowledged by the designer, the monumental task was to complete the project before Diwali. Thanks to the designer who provided immense support to the team to promptly execute and deliver the masterpiece. A dedicated project coordinator was introduced to Mr. Shravan Khati, who accompanied him to the factories and made the selection and required negotiations for the project.
The coordinator functioned as a point of contact and worked alongside the designer and business development team during the entire course of the project. In addition, he took care of all the requirements like product research, product suggestions, product quality check, and on-site installation.
Getting the Boat Sailing Under Strict Deadline
The team was required to deliver the project before Diwali, which meant that we had a completion time of barely six months. The chore was the two revolving goals- time urgency and the client’s outlook of a voguish grandeur and posh villa. Light and furniture sourcing from Arcedior saved heaps of time. Our strapping and sturdy network of manufacturing sourcing globally established unwrinkled furniture sourcing from top brands. This resulted in an immaculate sail from briefing, sourcing, shipping, and installation of furniture products and lights needed for the project. Thus, we were able to successfully deliver the project within five months, a month before the deadline.
Obtaining the Specifications On Point
Chiefly, interior design sourcing is a solution for all the problems. It grants global procurement solutions to interior designers, architects, and other project owners, thus showcasing sui-generis designs and features that aid various project necessities. Arcedior worked with the designer to maintain the budget and develop the specifications in detail. Transmuting the integral vision into life required actual find, customization followed by review and finalization of the design by the client, purchase and delivery of furniture and lights. Arcedior’s strong relationships with different manufacturers helped the client make wise decisions and procure the products at the best negotiated prices. Followed by the finalization of orders and costing in China, the deposit was submitted to seal the price and start with the production process. The products purchased by the client were built with in-depth research, to-notch designs, and specialized knowledge was a plus! A systematic approach to cost analysis, negotiations, and supplier sourcing were put into action from the beginning till the end of the project. Though the journey involved numerous painstaking and detailed experiences, the gratifying grin on the client’s face made it all worthwhile.
Exemplary Coordination That Emerged Triumphant Upshot

The upright coordination between the sourcing company, architect, and client is the key to victorious out-turns. Persistent coordination from the beginning till the end helped bridge the communication gap, which further established a comprehensive project management system. The management team handled all communications with the suppliers and monitored all the product delays and product shipment and installation. In addition to this, the project manager traveled at regular intervals to oversee the unpacking and installation. Arcedior communicated with the brand whenever an issue developed on-site and handled the situation with ease and intelligence.
