Manas Ranjan Badajena – Houzlook
A successful owner of an eCommerce website for interior designs, Manas Ranjan Badajena describes his story as a discovery towards home. Having worked in an IT company for 12 hours did not provide him with happiness, due to which he took the risk of leaving his job and started an eCommerce website dedicated to interior designs.
“Following your heart should be the utmost priority of everyone. Working for 24 hours may provide you with the wealth that you desire, but it won’t bring you the happiness, which you get by following your heart.”
When asked about the ideas and inspiration, Manas gave the credit to his father, who had a furniture shop in Bhubaneshwar, Odisha. He has seen his father handling furniture, creating new designs, and delivering them to the customers. The art of creating and designing new furniture gave Manas a boost, which his job as a project manager in the IT company could not provide.
Though leaving the job was a high risk, but by starting the website, Manas knew that the risk was worth taking. The hardships which he faced in the IT company gave him the idea of starting his own website and the tricks and tips as to how he could manage the website efficiently. His knowledge in the field of IT was a plus point, which helped him in successfully establishing his own website Houzlook.
The market of construction and interior design is growing day by day, as people are looking forward to making their home look unique and beautiful, and for making this possible, people are contacting interior designers for furniture and designs. Houzlook provides its customers with trending interior designs and furniture. Manas believes that each customer is unique and requires specific attention. To meet with the requirements of the customers, Manas tries to include new designs and styles every day, which makes his website favorite among the people.
“A house can only become a home when it is filled with love. Every piece of furniture shows the person, the beauty of the home, and the nature of the person.”
Manas has the vision of making the world beautiful and fascinating by making each home wonderful. Though the start has been slow, Manas and his website Houzlook are gaining the trust and love of people due to its incredible products and services. He prides himself in making full use of space in a house and converting it into a beautiful spot, which goes with the design of the house.
The development of the website was the first step that Manas took, after which Manas improved the website by making it a safe place for clients to view and buy the furniture from Houzlook. The office is located in Bangalore, and Manas is currently working on various projects, and at the same time, is handling the website efficiently. Yes, the work is difficult, but the satisfaction that Manas gets at the end of the day is what he is proud and happy about.
