Bangalore-based online modular furnishings provider CapriCoast has raised $3.5 million in a Series A round of funding from existing investors Accel Partners India and Singapore-based RB Investments. The startup will use the funds to focus on product development, sales, marketing and hiring.

CapriCoast had earlier raised $1.25 million in a round of seed funding led by Accel Partners India in April this year. Founded by Jawad Ayaz, CapriCoast currently serves in 20 cities including Chennai, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune and Nagpur and offers deliverable designs with a speciality in kitchens and wardrobes. The website provides users with online customization tools and free design consultations to zero in on furniture they would like to get.

Interestingly, CapriCoast and Zansaar, the other startup by Javad Ayaz, said they would use each other’s platforms to increase their user base. As of now Zansaar also lists furniture, where it prominently displays CapriCost modular kitchens as an option. Note that Zansaar had raised $6 million from Accel Partners and Tiger Global in Feb 2012.
