Rajat Singhi, 35, graduated from the prestigious Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania in 2000. A Finance and Management degree combined with investment banking experience at Credit Suisse First Boston in California, prepared him well to take on his parents’ thriving furnishings business in 2003.
He joined the established family business, one of India’s first Home Furnishing companies, designing and manufacturing stylized home linens for high end retailers such as Harrods of London and Bloomingdales in the United States. Rajat Singhi spent three years designing and manufacturing Linens for international giants such as Crate and Barrel, Z Gallerie, Neiman Marcus, Harrods amongst others.
This experience further crystallized Rajat’s innate design sense and heightened his knowledge of the industry. He found that Indian households were becoming increasingly house-proud and looking for ways to decorate their homes in a stylized, contemporary manner with a global outlook. However, India lacked stores that focused on stylish furnishings and accessories. Rajat Singhi decided to capitalize on that void, and Address Home was born.
