Over the last 14 years we’ve learned a thing or two about furniture including Indian Sheesham wood wood also known as Indian rose wood. Having been used since the earliest colonial days in the construction of premium hardwood furniture, it has proven to be one of the most durable woods around.


Sheesham wood, in other words Indian Rosewood or DALBERGIA SISSO is a simple deciduous tree found mainly in India, Kenya and Madagascar. These trees usually reach a height of 15 to 20 meters, although some of them grow up to 40 meters. The wood obtained from them gives the interior warmth and refinement. The original and special brown-dark purple colour with oily rings distinguishes this stylish species from many others.  If you’re looking for unique furniture that will make your interior stand out among the others, sheesham wood is a top choice. Below is an example of our furniture made of this type of wood. We also have a massive range on our website to choose from.


Definitely, it is a long- term purchase that will work in every home. Indian sheesham wood furniture is resistant to scratches and watermarks. They are characterized by high hardness and made to last for many years.

You can rest assured about the quality of the wood we use,  they are the best quality wood,  sustainly sourced and certified by the Forestry Stewardshop Council;  they have gone through a lengthy 6 years kiln dry process before being made into furniture, thus ensuring the furnture has minimium movement as times goes by.



These tips are easy and fun when it is time to clean your furniture. First of all, remember the main element of the care, which is to put pads or mat under the feet of the furniture to avoid scratching the wood.

• Always start the cleaning process of your sheesham wood furniture by wiping off the dust. Repeat the activity so that the delicate surface does not become dull.

• To avoid scratches on furniture while cleaning, use a suitable attachment like a dust collector. If you don’t have one, use a soft microfiber cloth instead of a vacuum cleaner.

• Apply a product specially intended for cleaning wood on the surface of furniture. Don’t use bleach, washing up liquid and so on.



The most popular products used for polishing rosewood furniture are beeswax. We recommend Briwax in a medium brown finish. Make sure your furniture is clean and dry,  you can then apply thin layers of polish along the grain of the wood. Repeat the polishing process as needed.
