Radiant Beaux is a concept and idea put together by three well-known entrepreneurs, Daminda Mulgama, Ranga Balasuriya and Tharaka Dharmapriya, who come from diverse backgrounds. Mulgama is General Manager, Business Development for Expo Lanka Freight, whilst Ranga is an entrepreneur and the visionary and founder of Glory Swim Shop. Tharaka is an expert in construction and civil engineering with over two decades of experience in the trade, handling projects in both Sri Lanka and the Maldives.
Providing an insight into their business concept Mulgama said: “Our core philosophy has been to sustain and evolve materials from nature into tangible luxury in all our creations. We wanted to inspire and excite people in a way that leads them to enjoy the beauty of creations made by nature as much as we do.”
Balasuriya commented: “The response from the trade has been overwhelming by both the residential and commercial sectors. Top architects and interior decorators have seen a rise in the demand for neutral color palettes and linear cuts coupled with bold contemporary designs and our products offer all of these elements. We believe that our products give a refreshingly different look from the present designs available in the market.”
Dharmapriya added: “Stone has been a mainstay of design and our collection represents beautiful natural products that are hardwearing, long lasting, naturally resilient and are distinctly beautiful to live with.”
Bringing in design innovations that celebrate the beauty and abundance of nature while offering rare and contemporary decor for inside and outside the home, Radiant Beaux looks set to revolutionize the industry, with their exciting array of products showcasing the ageless charm of stone while preserving the simplicity of modern minimalism.
