5 Benefits of Sheesham Wood Furniture


Sheesham Wood has been at the top when it comes to making Wooden Furniture and Handicrafts. Let’s find out why??

Over the recent years, the furniture world have seen a radical change in design as well as the materials being used in products. In today’s furniture market, we can see different materials used for making products – from plastics and cast iron to wood, plywood, fibreboards and ceramics. The choice of the material totally depends on the customers. Some need a lightweight solution while some consider traditional designs that can only be made in wood. Wooden Furniture has been a first choice for a majority of clients preferably because of its rich cultural heritage and traditional designs that can be made by hand. Wooden handicrafts and Furniture made by hand is popular among the masses especially looking for some stylish and royal look to home.

Primarily, hardwood is used for making furniture products such as Sofa Sets, dining sets, cabinets, wardrobes and other small articles. Hardwood can be carved with much ease and are durable enough to withstand rough handling as well as extreme weather conditions. We, at Aarsun Woods, have been using hardwood for making furniture and other handicrafts for decades now. The most widely used hardwood types are Teak Wood and Sheesham. Of these, Sheesham Wood is primarily used for making hand-carved furniture.

Sheesham is known by many names such as Sisu, Indian Rosewood or Dalbergia sisso and many more names. Sheesham is an important timber tree of India. The wood is used for making doors, window frames, furniture, specially cabinets and much more. The pulp of wood is also used for making papers.

Sheesham wood furniture is very versatile and alluring. This is the most famous wood used by the artisans for making furniture or any type of wooden item especially for home or office purpose.  Sheesham is also used to make musical instruments, specifically for percussion due to the resonance abilities of all rosewood.

Here are 5 Advantages / Benefits of having Sheesham Wood Furniture at Home:

1. Best Hardwood for carving:

As being said, Sheesham Wood is by far the most widely used and rated as Best Hardwood for Carving. The wood is hard and has medium coarse texture making it the best wood for carving and engraving purpose. It does not wrap or bend or split as many other wood types. Artisans find it a lot easier to work upon due to its high tensile strength and customers just adores the carving and its unique grainy structure. Despite having a granular surface, Sheesham Wood can be hand-waxed or polished in different shades to get smooth texture and this also somehow provides a termite resistivity to the product – again a good thing to have at moisture or termite-prone locations.


2. Durable and Long Lasting:

Indian Rosewood is highly durable and long lasting and is in fact decay resistant. The heartwood in particular is very durable and is known to have natural resistivity to dry termites. After all, furniture needs to withstand extreme weather conditions and should be tough enough to withstand rough handling.

3. Shade Availability:

Sheesham Wood itself has a large number of varieties and with each variety comes different shades of natural wood. Of course one can easily add a coating of the desired polish onto the surface to have it his / her way. However, some believe in natural shades and unpolished furniture. For those nature “raw” lovers, Sheesham Wood provides a long range of shades – ranging from plain withered look to dry redwood shade.  And what to say about the grains structure. The grain structure changes to different shades when it comes in contact with a different lighting condition. Also, it can be hand-waxed to increase the shine and lustre.

Wooden Temples made in Sheesham Wood seems to have some relativity to the Vastu-Shastra and are considered to be Vastu Complaint. Most of our Pooja Articles and Temples are made in Sheesham Wood.

5. Affordable Wood for Furniture Making:

Selecting Furniture for Indian Homes has been a challenge these days, especially when there are a lot of options in designing and materials available for making furniture. People seldom take anything for granted now. Gone are the days when the options were limited and we had to settle for only a few products and designs available at offline stores. In the age of globalization, we have a number of options and can get almost anything anywhere. However, when it comes to choosing a theme for our homes, we are puzzled. What to choose- Traditional Style or Modern Style.

Every person these days look for something special and unique that just goes with most of the interior architecture. Sometimes it is hard to find something accurate. Modern Furniture no wonder have given us a lot of options in terms of Styling and Shades, however, Traditional is the one style that almost everyone can have without compromising with the quality and also can be customized as per need.  Traditional designs never go out of style.  Old era had artisans that were profusely crafted in the art of making any log of wood into a masterpiece.

While selecting furniture, one always looks for quality. Modern style furniture does provide range but not quality. Moreover, if someone needs floral or some design over the units, few options are only available. But when it comes to traditional furniture, not only the quality issue is resolved; design options are immense, be it abstract carving or traditional floral carving. One can get almost any design crafted onto the wood units. Modern homes can be boring after sometime, while these traditional units bring a blissful feel to your home. Also, it brings us closer to our heritage.  So, you need not be afraid of compromising with something simple and boring. When it comes to decorating our homes, we all have different liking. Decorating home is an art we all love. Just like art, some like to have modern designs while some want to have traditional décor. Some people wants minimum furniture where as some prefer a lot of variety.


In terms of QUALITY:

Available in premium quality wood such teak, sheesham & Mango Wood, Traditional furniture looks good with detailed engravings and artistic designs. There are a number of items that we can add: room divider, wooden boxes, jharokha frame, traditional wall shelves, wall hangings, simple wooden jaali style designs, and much more.  Not only these smaller products enhance the look and feel but are affordable. Traditional furniture such as handmade Sofa sets, dining, beds, doors and more have a unique touch of style and aura that attracts everyone.  In short, shelling out a few extra bucks will give you years of satisfaction.

In terms of CARVING:

The traditional furniture can be full carved or brass inlaid while it can be blend of both. There are many options present with traditional collection to give your imagination a beautiful life style. Modern Designs lacks details while traditional furniture has detailed engraving with flora and fauna etched out on the surface that looks elegant and antique. Designs like, flowers and stems, peacocks, swans and elephants are common in traditional furniture which dates back to the Mughal era.

In terms of Durability:  In terms of durability, traditional furniture is long lasting because of high quality hardwood used.  Solid wood such as sheesham, teak, oak, and more is used that is well known for its dense structure which automatically enhances the life and strength of the units in comparison to the units made in ply or MDF wood. In modern furniture, full wood is seldom used while in traditional handicrafts and furniture, full sheesham wood and teak wood are widely preferred.

The craftsmanship involved in this traditional furniture beautifies the décor all the corner of your home with royal & luxurious traditional layout.

There are a lot of things to consider while selecting a modern unit while the traditional style furniture will always add a touch of elegance to the place.
