Cane Furniture


Images: S.V. Road, Bandra (W)


I have always liked handmade cane and bamboo products. During my junior college days I remember that I had somehow managed to buy a flower vase made of cane (obviously to keep imitation flowers).

Though NID has a huge bamboo workshop, I never managed to do even a small product using the vast resource.

And now, after years of longing I have had a chance to buy a piece of furniture for myself and of course I preferred the cane one. A book shelf for my library of books.

Go to S.V. road, Bandra (W) and you will find lots of cane and even wood carved furniture! One can find good workmanship and well finished products like centre tables, chairs, sofa sets, shelves and many more. Lamp shades perfectly made from cane waste are the prettiest things there. Small showrooms are spread all through the long road where bargaining for the right price is must. You can also order customized furniture here. I guess, one can also try out prototyping of self designed products here. I hope to do this some day!

Hi,
I have been searching for some good cane stuff in Mumbai. Since you have already bought can you tell me anything about the price range here.
Regards!

Hey Ypschita,
The prices are reasonable or cheap may be. but you need to bargain a lot to get the best deal ;)
And the prices depend on the intricacy of workmanship involved.
Happy buying!!
