Agree with Jaguar here. 2 weeks is impossible timing as they will first prepare options, get your approval, order material, put in production and assemble at your place. The entire process will take a minimum of 30 days if the vendor is not running upto his full capacity. Also, the pricing shall be 1200-1700 psf. The end product is definitely better in look and feel than option 1 and 2.

Park at Forum and walk across. There is zero safe parking in Koramangala in this area.

Any landmarks or driving directions from sony world junction is highly appreciated. Planning to visit the same at the earliest.

Any good place to park nearby the same.

Surprised to not see fabfurnish.com on a brief perusal of this thread.

I have ordered from them over the years and sometimes they have very unusual contemporary stuff like fiberglass coffee tables and metal computer racks. Service is top notch and I once returned a piece of unwieldy furniture all the way to Delhi because of a manufacturing defect and they sent a replacement right away.

I find their prices reasonable especially when they are on sale which happens quite often.

Any suggestions pls. welcome!

Many thanks in advance

Amit

I believe you are looking for some toughened Glass - Try Asahi d . I have some good experience with Glasses I got from Asahi couple of years back . Since they are near to Gurgaon they will need less time to deliver , they might be little expensive over Modi or Local toughening plants but insist on Asahi factory supply only

Edit ::: Just checked with their Gurgaon office ( Glasxperts Experience Zone) - they are handling this business directly all over India - you can speak to guy named Amit - 91-124-4212096/97 , this is SBU of Asahi

Thanks for the information, but actually I am looking for a normal partition. Asahi would be too expensive, I don't think they would give their consultation for 80sqm area

You've just got to treat it like you treat your car seat.
Hi,

Can you advise whether sheesham is really as durable as teak for a long (15-20 year) ownership?

We wanted to buy shoe racks and a simple table but finding both in sheesham was far easier in Ghitorni than in teak.

Money isnt a constraint, hassle to find it is

Everyone claims they use teak - how can one be sure it is real teak? Any tried / trusted suppliers in south Delhi or gurgaon you can recommend?

Here's the kind of table we want:

I don't think one can ever be sure, unless you take an expert. There are, I think, quite a few teak, teak-like and teak-related woods. Many of them may be every bit as good and durable as wood from an actual teak tree in Burma: only the experts know!

Frankly, though, wood in general is pretty durable, and 15-20 years is nothing for very much less "posh" woods --- unless it is, for instance, for outside, exposed-to-elements, use.

Long story sir. Born & raised in Madras (as it was then known), worked 5 years there, then moved to the US for > 2 decades, moved back to Bangalore for 2 years, Chennai for 5 years, and then back in Bangalore for the last two years. Quite a nomad, see !

If I may answer for the Chennaites, it is treating us rather badly. Dog days of summer got replaced by cold and rain, except now, the weather has remembered its duty and is promising to make up for it!

phamilyman, I don't know about the practicality of marble table tops. I don't think it is that hard, and if my vague memory of the chemistry is correct, it certainly is not acid proof. A slip with a knife, or a vinegar spill, might not be too good. I'd also consider the safety aspect: with a young phamily, you need to be very careful about what they might contrive to pull over, and what happens if it falls on top of them. Wood might not do them much good, but stone?

Teak supply has been almost negligible in the last 10+ years due to restrictions on logging, long maturity time of teak trees and replacement of native teak groves with other cash crops. As a result the little teak generally available is salvage from antique doors, furniture, etc. (it was plentiful upto the mid 60s, my grandfather's house built in 50s had all-teak fittings, later additions built in early 70s used non-teak wood.). 6 years ago I engaged a carpenter to build me a small teak bookcabinet; he spent 2 weeks trying to source the teak and finally managed just enough for the doors.

Shisham is less 'famous' than teak but is excellent. It is cheaper than teak (but still quite expensive) and wonderfully long lasting with a beautiful grain and finish. My parents bought plenty of shisham furniture after their marriage almost 40 years ago and it's all as good as new. But I have heard of plenty of scams where acacia or sal wood is dyed and passed off as shisham (or teak). It would be a good idea to locate a expereinced carpenter and pay him 1k or so for his expert opinion on the wood before buying.

Personally I have found stainless steel furniture always starts to rust after 6-7 years. The legs can scatch the floor if the rubber guards wear out. Wooden furniture, even the common rubberwood based stuff, is much better.
