In the heart of Colombo’s bustling streets lies Paradise Road on Dharmapala Mawatha, an elegant haven that has stood as the epitome of style since its inception in 1994. Housed within a stately old mansion, this flagship store exudes a timeless charm, offering an exquisite array of locally crafted home ware, handicrafts, clothing, and more. Frequented by both locals and tourists, Paradise Road maintains an unwavering commitment to international quality and design while preserving the distinct local aesthetic that defines the brand. Under the visionary leadership of founder Shanth Fernando, Paradise Road has become an iconic Sri Lankan brand, celebrated for its unique design ethos and unparalleled sophistication.

Established in 1987 by the visionary Sri Lankan entrepreneur Udayshanth Fernando, Paradise Road began as a retail venture before expanding its footprint into hospitality. From its humble beginnings, the brand has blossomed into a global design powerhouse, encompassing retail, art, design, and hospitality. Paradise Road’s iconic establishments, including The Gallery Café and Tintagel Colombo, have become institutions in Colombo, offering a harmonious blend of local style, architecture, and cuisine. Guided by Udayshanth Fernando’s meticulous eye for design, the interior aesthetic of Paradise Road’s spaces reflects a unique blend of elegance and eclecticism, drawing acclaim from international publications such as the New York Times and Vogue India.

For those exploring Sri Lanka for the first time, Udayshanth Fernando’s influence permeates every corner of Colombo, from its chicest spots to its rich colonial heritage. Rooted in a deep appreciation for his homeland, Fernando’s design philosophy is a testament to his ability to reimagine tradition with contemporary flair. Embracing a monochrome palette and geometric motifs, Fernando has reshaped the Sri Lankan design landscape, replacing vibrant hues with timeless neutrals and intricate patterns with clean lines. The result is a sophisticated fusion of tradition and modernity, exemplified by iconic spaces like Tintagel, which seamlessly blend heritage charm with eclectic elegance.
