Plantation Chairs & Antique Benches

From Kerala, India comes the classic veranda – plantation chairs seen in so many images from the old days past. Finely crafted in recycled old teak or rosewood with newly caned seating and backs in varied patterns. These chairs have adjustable backs and ‘leg rests’ that swing out for relaxing.  We also provide the more traditional and older chairs of this type that we have newly recaned to last future generations.  Our stools are also crafted of beautiful old teak and rosewood so there is no fear of joints opening up from shrinkage.

We carry antique benches from throughout India, from old temple benches covered in ‘German Silver’ to simple wide plank old church benches from the colonial period and garden benches made for the outdoors.

Coming soon a new shipment of antique Chakki’s, old grain grinding tables.  Always a best seller for their use as low tables in todays decor.
