Getting durable and good looking furniture without breaking the bank can be quite a task in this city of ours. Thankfully, a bunch of shops in Malleswaram are here to help. Just a short walk from KC General Hospital’s main gate (owards Devaiah Park), there are row of shops, on either side of the road, that specialise in all sorts of cane furniture. We browsed through them and, for us, Sabeeha Cane Industry was a great find. Housed in a derelict building, the shop stocks all kinds of cane furniture. Plus, their furniture is better designed and less run-of-the-mill, we think.
While scouring the store, we found plenty of budget-friendly buys. They had large cane baskets (INR 1,500), that would work well as organisers, sitting on top of Ottoman-style stools (INR 2,000 onwards). For the living room, they have entire furniture sets (beginning at 14k) and also high-backed chairs (INR 2,400 onwards). For your patio, there are old-fashioned swings beginning at INR 3,000. Doing up your little one’s room? They had an adorable crib for just INR 2,800 and also little, nursery chairs for INR 1,250. Of course, using your killer bargaining skills you can get a discount on these prices. Sabeeha also customises furniture. You can bring your design or choose from their catalogue and they’ll have it ready for you within a week
