The beautiful hand-carved Sheesham desk shown in the photograph below, was on display at the Navi Mumbai Arts Festival 2013 that was held at CIDCO Urban Haat in CBD Belapur, Navi Mumbai from 24th to 28th Jan-2013.
Notice the wheels at the bottom of this Sheesham wood desk that add a touch of modernity to it, and also make it easy to move inside the house (great for those of us who like to keep on changing the furniture arrangement inside our house every week).
Other than this magnificent desk, there were plenty of other fine pieces of solid Sheesham wood furniture on display at the exhibit. Below this post I am giving more links for you to take a look at those other Sheesham wood items.
Sheesham (Indian Rose wood) is a hardwood timber that is popular in the making of solid wood furniture. It has a good market in India and is also exported to other countries. The costs are comparable to teak wood furniture.
