Paradise Road is not only an exquisite homeware store, but over the years it has risen to the status of a tourist attraction, deservedly so. Paradise Road houses truly unique one-of-a-kind products, from rustic furniture pieces, to elegant porcelain, Paradise Road is an absolute delight to wander in and explore. The store’s interior channels a grunge Mediterranean atmosphere with dark corners, stone walls and seductive scents. The second floor has an extensive collection of linen products. Take note however that the prices here tend to be on the higher end of the spectrum.
Setting their own unique trend, lifestyle stores in Colombo have a lot of exclusive items on offer—from furniture, porcelain and decorative items to even clothes and antiques. Among these, Paradise Road has become more of a tourist attraction due to the distinctive identity it has built for itself, not just as a store but also as a gallery housing art. But, if you are looking to take home Sri Lankan souvenirs and amazing collector’s pieces, then you must check out Barefoot and Laksala or Lakmedura—home to Sri Lankan handicrafts, carefully hand crafted by Sri Lankan artisans. So don’t forget to pay a visit and experience what is in store to take home something truly artistic and in Sri Lankan in every essence.
