Home to one of the most ancient civilizations in the world, the subcontinent’s history of art is just as diverse as the several empires that influenced it. Whether it was the Indus Valley Civilization, the Mughal Courts or the British Raj, artists and craftsmen of the highest degree produced some outstanding work that is unique to this part of the world.
Founded by Sonia Rehman Qureshi, Subcontinent is a celebration of that era. Sonia has been recognized as one of the key “Pakistani Women” for her contribution in the field of art and culture*. She has a degree in Fine Arts from the prestigious National College of Arts, Lahore. Her expression of art can be seen in a variety of ways whether it is in her award winning career as a talk show host and an actress or her success in taking on interior designing projects for the international market.
Sonia has recently extended her interest to restoring and reviving antique interior treasures. She has individually selected each masterpiece and personally been involved in restoring each item in her signature style. These exquisite pieces are sure to be cherished by not only those who own them today but also future generations.
