Interior trends, like fast fashion, come and go but there’s a good reason traditional furniture like the four-post beds and wooden jhoolas are sought after in modern homes. Mumbai-based furniture brand Furnicheer makes such classic hard wood furniture with a modern touch that stands the test of time. Their website just got a brand new look and coming up soon is an exciting feature. Read on to find out.
Hard wood furniture pieces are revered in India for their propensity. The nostalgic feeling of growing up around them in grandparent’s homes aside, some things are timeless, priceless and will never go out of style.
Furnicheer: Buy Once, Buy Well
Furnicheer, a word play on furniture, is the brain child of Subhangi Vadyanathan. They have been in the business of transforming houses into homes with their hand crafted furniture for over a decade now.
You know I read somewhere that when buying furniture, Scandinavians believe in the saying “Buy once, buy well”. The products from Furnicheer fit this description to a T.
Often, traditional furniture is custom-made by carpenters in solid wood for an authentic look and to ensure material quality. The hassle for finding a carpenter to get such long-lasting pieces in teak or rose wood puts off many of us from owning that oonjal with classic brass chains.
Fortunately, we have Furnicheer that stands out from the crowded online retail market with their signature distressed and eclectic pieces of traditional furniture.
What Makes Furnicheer Unique?
Furnicheer has gained the reputation of making quality furniture with an impeccable design sense. Their stylish range combines the straight contours of modern design with the luxurious feel of silk fabric.
The furniture range includes classic pieces such as love seats, diwans, chest of drawers, wooden bed backs, swings and prayer units. This is in addition to the standard furniture like sofas, benches, coffee tables, side tables, dining set, crockery units, study tables, and accessories like trays, planters, cushions and photo frames.
The following features sets them apart:
Hardwood: all the furniture is made of seasonable, sustainable solid wood from tulip to SYP (southern yellow pine) sourced from the US. This means the grains and stains are visible adding to the aesthetics, pest free, and durability.
Modern Contours in Traditional Colours: Distressed finish in eclectic colors is a signature of Furnicheer. They do all kinds of finishes on wood ranging from distressed rustic look to the premium sheen look.
Furnicheer founder Subhangi says,
Our furniture is stained using PU stains, which comes in bright, pastel and distress colors. We also try different design techniques which are researched & developed by our designers. “
Customize Online: The furniture range available online can be bought as is or you can customize. Furnicheer will be soon launching the much-awaited custom furniture section on their website where one can customize color of the fabric and size of a particular piece of furniture.
Silk Fabric: The upholstered fabric is hand-woven silk with a backing fabric. Silk as a fabric is delicate so the use of a backing fabric strengthens it. Using hand woven silk fabric has always been an integral part of Furnicheer because of the range of colors you get plus the texture and the richness of the fabric.
A Furnicheer Home
We often put off furniture purchases until we own a home. But, an investment in classic pieces such as a sofa, bed, dining or swing will elevate the style of any home: owned or rental. Take this 6,000 sq.ft Bangalore penthouse, for instance, that Furnicheer designed for a couple and their daughter who recently relocated from Hong Kong.
Now comes the interesting revelation. What if I told you this wasn’t like any other home tour, this is a rented apartment. Yes, you read it right. Thanks to the furnishing, this beautiful rented apartment looks so elegant and royale.
Buy The Look
Many of the products featured in the house above are available on the website through customized order form. Before wrapping up, here are my three favorite picks from Furnicheer’s range:
