Traditional Home magazine featured our Three Legged Stool and our Roorkhee Chair in Canvas in the March 2010 issue in a Marketplace article by Sabine Rothman.

We are pleased two of our classic hand crafted products were recommended by such a prestigious publication.
Our signature line of safari "knock down" campaign furniture is growing rapidly and our Bareilly Chair was featured in the October 2005 issue of House Beautiful magazine in an article called, "Colonial Mood." Originally designed for British military officers in the 1800's, the unique and timeless functionality of this extraordinary style of furniture is experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Our handmade rosewood collection is equally appropriate for the finest office settings, the most rugged hunting camp, an apartment in the city, your yacht, or your back porch in the mountains. Portable, durable, resilient, and elegant. Be sure to check out our newest pieces, the Dining Table with the Havana Chair, Officer's Lounge Chair and Desk.
