Where can I buy a bookcase?

Post by caller » Thu Dec 29, 2016 12:24 pm

Any help appreciated - I know about Siam Old Teak and Dan Singkhon.

Looking for real wood, preferably light in colour, 3 shelves (or larger) - might buy two!

No MBF. Nowt against MBF, but not for a bookcase.

Thanks for any help.

There are several places such as Index Living Mall and quite a few others in that price class. There is also the cheaper option at Big Kiang on Soi 88.

This is the FB for a friend. Her husband makes things out of wood.

I can also recommend a guy who makes custom furniture out of wood, he's made a beautiful shoe/storage box/bench for me to my specifications at a reasonable price. Let me know if you require his contact details, he can then show you photos and examples of his work.

Thanks, but Index don't have what I want. Index in Hua Hin is quite poor compared to others I have visited.

PM sent!

Forgot to mention that I popped into the Cabinet Co. today and spoke with one of their designers, who will come up with something. I'll also be looking in Bkk over the weekend.

Could you send me his contact info? I need a computer desk in a specific size that has proved to be difficult to find in the stores. Thanks.

The Cabinet also make bespoke furniture. Provide the measurements and they'll give you a quote.
