After graduation from the Interiors School in 1987, the Executive Director of Manasara, one of the leading Interior Design Houses in the country, handpicked her.
After getting sufficient exposure at Manasara, she was offered a challenging opportunity by the promoters of “Dream City” and was appointed by them as senior advisor of their design firm “Craftsmen”. The projects by this firm were mostly executed on turnkey basis. The factory consisted of advance machines e.g. Seasoning Plant, Band Saw Machines, Tensioning Machines, Circular Dimension Saw, Plainer, Moulding Machine, Hydraulic Press, Lathe Machine, Drill Machine, Surface Thicknesses and Lamination Press Machine.
Under her Supervision the company diversified from making panel doors and windows to excellent quality Furniture and executed a number of Projects on Turnkey Basis.
In her own words Payal Kapoor says “After putting my efforts, I felt that my creativity and identity as an Interior Designer was being encroached upon. Hence, I decided to launch my own in 1991 and launched my own design firm by the name of “Visions”. Thus, began the process of institutionalization of her Design Genius.”
