Paradise Road on Dharmapala Mawatha was opened in 1994 and today stands as the flagship store of the brand. Housed in an old mansion the store sells locally produced home ware, local handicrafts, antiques, clothing, giftware, crockery and more. Frequented by locals and tourists alike, the choice of products on offer are up-to-date with international quality and design while maintaining the timelessness and local aesthetic that has become synonymous with the brand.
