Livspace, which is basically a combo of IKEA and a home decoration service, has secured $90 million in series D funding, the startup announced this morning.

Launched first in India in 2015, it expanded to Singapore in late 2019.

The new cash—which brings its total raised to near $200 million—will go toward expansion to new cities in India plus new countries across Asia. It’s evaluating “Australia, Malaysia, and Indonesia […] and the Middle East as its next markets, where the interior and renovation industry is equally fragmented and presents a ripe opportunity,” the firm said in today’s statement.

Anuj Srivastava is the co-founder and CEO of Livspace, which connects customers with decorators while also selling them furniture, fixtures, and fittings. The idea is that it’s a one-stop shop for new homeowners or for renovators:
