Livspace aims to use the raised capital to expand to six additional Indian cities, currently serving seven, and boost its offline operations with its Livspace Design Centers.
The Design Centers offer a physical alternative to the online platform, allowing customers to inspect décor and furniture products and organize in-person consultations with design experts.
Tech in Asia added that Livspace expects to earn US$100mn in annualized gross revenue by March 2019, and the firm “claims its gross revenue has more than quadrupled over the past 18 months”.
