At the very entrance are two unique creations that complement the distinctive stature maintained by Domus Designs which is far from being just another design boutique. Two sculptures—an ostrich and a bull—made using metallic waste, nuts and bolts. Putting creativity and innovation to its best use, when it comes to design, Domus Designs knows it all, does it all and has it all.

Domus Designs’ speciality is decorative pieces made using decoupage. Decoupage is an ancient form of art that requires gluing images to an object. As such, gold and silver leaf designs are the most commonly used patterns by Domus Designs for their pieces. Walking in and around the store, one will be completely charmed by such beauteous decorative peices available in versatile forms—urns, vases, trays and also in the mould of furniture such as tables and cupboards. Here, one can explore the variety of intricately worked pieces that narrate the tale of Sri Lankan skill and craftsmanship.
You can also get your furniture designed and custom made with just the right combination of form and function to any design of your choice.
Featuring the inspirational work of local artists, the art gallery at Domus Designs is a platform for emerging artists to showcase their work since the company is guided by the manifesto of uplifting local skills and craftsmanship.
