Senses by Samreen
Sumreen had always been into furniture and later conceived an idea to start a business of her own. She came up with a name and an extensive plan for it. Senses by Samreen offers various products and furniture designs for all budgets. Renovating spaces to be surprisingly bold and a style having its own unique story is what defines her brand. Recently, she launched a website and initiated an online consultancy for interior design, through which customers can access her services.
Sumreen Mahmood’s Reason for Success
She is a person who believes in learning, unlearning and relearning to refine her knowledge and experiences. She is highly energetic, creative, and brave who courageously faces all risks and challenges to be successful.
Sumreen comes from a supportive family but faced resistance from her own workers and distant family members, because of furniture manufacturing being a male dominated industry. However, this could not stop her. She proved herself through her accomplishments and gained respect from even those criticizing her initially. She serves as an example for women who have a dream to achieve something and work desperately for it.
