We at East have primarily been using solid lumber for our furniture we try to bring the grains to life by our the fine hands of craftsman who lovingly sand and polish the wood over and over again many times to bring out it’s rich luster and warmth that only wood can exude.The carving, whether delicately done or heavily as in the baroque style is executed as it was done a hundred years ago with a great deal of care and detail. The beauty of furniture lies in its detail.
Apart from Indian Rosewood, we also use Teak wood, Oak, Walnut, Wenge, Beech and several other Timbers depending on the product and the client’s requirement.
The business of furniture making is not as simple as it sounds, the curing and chemical treatment of timber is a standard practice with us, and all of the furniture is hand made between our production units.
