Gandhara is an iconic furniture and lifestyle store that specializes in home interiors, that was founded back in 2004 by Dian Gomes. Being a benefactor of talented artisans, Dian appreciates the highest forms of craftsmanship and art, and Gandhara is home to some hand-picked items that have been selected during his many travels overseas. These days Dian benefits from the input of his daughter, Shahili Gomes-McCoy who oversees the business’ creative direction. The store offers a collection of products from Sri Lanka as well as other culturally diverse regions such as Peru, Tibet, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, Burma as well as several countries in Africa. Gandhara is the centre point of Gandhara Street, Sri Lanka’s first ever ‘art street’ situated in the heart of Colombo 6.
