Esha Gupta is the founder of Design Pataki, one of India’s leading online magazines on luxury design, art, and architecture. A notable interior designer and creative consultant, she launched Design Pataki after a five-year stint in the interior industry as the youngest-ever managing director of Artisan Furnishings, India. Esha has a comprehensive design background; she has studied interior design at the prominent Parsons School of Design, New York and Rachana Sansad, Mumbai.
Through Design Pataki, Esha is filling the void of global design in India. She has been personally invited to cover some of the biggest international design shows like Salone Del Mobile in Milan, Maison Et Objet in Paris, Ambiente in Frankfurt, Ikea’s Design Democratic Day in Sweden, and Dubai Design Week in the Middle East.

Esha is an accomplished speaker whose unique insights on design have led her to engage in live conversations with some of the most influential international designers, architects and artists of our time like Subodh Gupta, Stefano Giovannoni, Richard Hutten, Bill Bensley, Vinita Chaitanya, Ashiesh Shah and many more.

She has been invited to moderate and be part of panel discussions with leading brands and events such as Design Democracy, AVAS Group, Messe Frankfurt, LDD, Godrej, D/code, Istituto Marangoni and SheThePeople. She has also conducted masterclasses on design for FabIndia, Nykaa, HomeTown, Future Group & Asian Paints.

In the unprecedented time of COVID 19, Esha hosted the first-ever Digital Design Week in India – a five-day virtual design festival packed with live conversations with leading architects and designers, art and styling workshops, design quizzes and webinars. 46,00,000 people from all across India and the rest of the world tuned in for Digital Design Week, given its one-of-a-kind nature.

During the second wave of the pandemic, Esha united India’s design community to raise funds for COVID relief, and garnered donations from decor brands, furniture companies, and vendors who were given the chance to get featured on Design Pataki. In a few days, she managed to raise upwards of Rs. 19,50,000 for Mann Deshi, an organization dedicated to the economic empowerment of rural women.

Esha has been featured in India’s leading magazines and newspapers like India Today, Good Homes, Business Traveller, Indian Express, Ideal Homes, Times of India, Midday, Luxebook, to name a few. She has also been featured in the prestigious Italian magazine Design Diffusion. Through several initiatives at Design Pataki, she hopes to empower young women in design.
