Kiran Thind founded Cherry Bomb Vintage in 2006. Upon graduation from Ryerson University's School of Interior Design, she worked in residential design and always had a keen interest in furniture. After restoring a few vintage pieces for her own home, she enrolled in Mohawk College's Upholstery program.

She creates unique furniture that combines a love of vintage glamour with bold colours and patterns inspired by sources like street art, fashion and music to complement or contrast the original piece. Kiran does custom client upholstery work, produces upcycled home decor items and collects and sells vintage home furnishings and accessories.

Kiran was proud to be one of the designers selected for the Chair Affair in 2010 and 2011, a major Furniture Bank fundraiser where local artists and designers took chairs from Furniture Bank, transformed them and donated their creations to be put up for auction. She's thrilled to be part of Chair Affair again in 2012.

In 2010 and 2011 Kiran also co-produced Make It, a showcase of local artists, designers and craftspeople and looks forward to organizing this exciting event in the years to come.
