Pocket Aces’ lifestyle channel Gobble has launched its first home makeover series — Home Genie for Flipkart Furniture. Gobble’s latest venture into the home category attempts to create spaces that are a reflection of its residents’ personalities. Hosted by actor Shruti Seth with interior designer Ali Baldiwala of Baldiwala Associates, the series was released on Gobble’s YouTube channel on February 25, 2021.


Flipkart Furniture offers customers a wide range of options and themes to choose from to bring their dream homes to life — all at the click of a button. The series through its tagline ‘Don’t just dream, make it happen’, showcases the transformational journey of couples’ homes, catering to all kinds of home design aspirations and offers the most creative solutions, be it trendy, vintage, or even a modern chic look.

The first of the three-episode series features OTT favourite, Abhishek Banerjee, along with his wife Tina, who need a living room that offers ample seating for guests, but is minimalistic at the same time. Working with smart seating solutions and sleek furniture selected from Flipkart, Ali creates a space that strikes the right chord by curating the perfect look and feel to meet the couples’ home goals. The series also features the TV couple, Mohit Sehgal and Sanaya Irani, who have personally selected the furniture pieces from Flipkart Furniture as their home office dream becomes a reality, with foldable, multi-utility pieces. The aesthetic designs make their tiny room a grand Insta-worthy, multi-functional home office.

To give back to the Gobble community, the series created a unique opportunity for fans to win a chance to feature on the show. Mumbai-based Florence Saldanha, a die-hard Gobble fan, and her husband Shailesh were chosen as the winners. The channel provided a complete makeover of their master bedroom which as per their wish was intimate, yet functional. While working with these couples, Baldiwala also shared useful tips for audiences to implement and transform their spaces into their dream homes.

Commenting on the association, Kanchan Mishra, Senior Director, Furniture, Beauty, Personal Care, Baby care, Flipkart, said, “Flipkart Furniture, ‘India ka Furniture Studio’, always strives to offer the widest selection of quality furniture at the doorsteps of millions of our customers across the country.
