Kolkata: D2C furniture start-up brand Sleepyhead has announced to rope in Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh as their first-ever brand ambassador.
The brand plans to launch a 360-degree digital national campaign with the Bollywood icon to headline their pan-India expansion as a complete home lifestyle brand.
Sleepyhead is a D2C furniture and home décor brand focused on bringing design-first, high quality products at accessible prices for new age home shoppers.
This collaboration will be pivotal for the brand to achieve their milestone of becoming a 1000 Cr brand by 2025 and be the go-to home lifestyle brand for young India.
Mathew Joseph, CEO & Co-Founder, said, “Sleepyhead’s mission is to make everyday living fun and fabulous through thoughtfully designed products.
