The Workroom® was created in a spare bedroom with lots of big ideas and no room for material samples.
Principal Designer & Creative Head
Karishma Baid has had a creative edge since her childhood. She played several musical instruments and practiced various forms of art for many years, and has also won numerous accolades, at state as well as national level. After graduating with a degree in Commerce and an MBA in Finance, Karishma realized that design was her true calling. A few semesters into design school, her bright and sharp aesthetic sense made her stand out in a pool of talented counterparts. She then went on to working for over 5 years with award-winning design names in Chennai & Mumbai, before she permanently set base in Gurugram. After 2 years of working under a big name and grasping all the knowledge and dynamics of the city’s work culture, she finally found THE WORKROOM. There has been no stopping since then, and the firm has completed a wide range of projects in both residential and commercial sectors, working for a diverse class of clients.
Karishma’s ability to wow her clients stems from her strength in understanding their taste and ideas, translating them into reality, while elevating it to its greatest potential. Combining a sophisticated understanding of color, texture, light and scale, Karishma creates spaces that are timeless, balanced and unique to both client and location. She strongly believes that “How you shape your space will shape your day.” The power of a well designed space has an incredible impact on the individual who lives, works or interacts with that space. “I’m honored every time a new client asks us to be a part of their life in such a personal way.” She believes her business education background has informed and enhanced her abilities as a designer and a business woman. Adds Karishma, “Equally important to having great creative instincts, my business administration masters has reinforced a strong work ethic, attention to detail, and an ability to see every transaction from different angles.”
The Workroom has been recognized and featured in various web magazines, and has also been featured in Better Interiors for its recent restaurant project in New Delhi.

Mayank hones his communication skills and abilities as a customer relationship and business development manager. Maintaining a strong reputation for The Workroom, he is able to keep consistent communication with clients, carrying out essential satisfaction surveys and reviews, to ensure that the end user is satisfied with the products and services. Escalating and resolving areas of concern and liaising with the design team to ensure client needs are fulfilled effectively is his forte. He believes that client satisfaction is of utmost importance to an organization’s long term survival and success, as he says “Strive for customer happiness and seek to surprise them, success will follow.”
Senior Interior Designer
An interior designer with 3 years experience in the field, Rhea is eternally interested in creating spaces that leave a long lasting impact. Her belief in functionality, putting pieces together, and solving problems to create beautiful spaces is commendable. Her style can be best described as bold, collected, and cheerful and to which she always says, “A space should be a reflection of how you live, not how you want to be perceived”.
Jasdeep’s expertise is technical drawings and project management. His on-field experience brings to the table a sound understanding of design and its translation into working drawings. With his interest in ensuring that our visions come alive in their best form, he says “True design is in the detail, which is what gives an edge to every creation”
The Workroom also has an in-house team of Draughtspersons, Décor 3D Visualizers, Experienced Contractors, and Designers. The firm also collaborates with other teams to bring on board diverse skill sets that different kinds of projects might demand.
For us, design is all about giving shape to experiences – elevating them and making them contemporary yet timeless. We believe that spaces need to engage our sensual side, touch our emotions and of course address the need for which they are being created, while simultaneously adding joy to our material and immaterial lives.
