Inde-Art Design House is a cabinet and furniture company located in Leslieville in Toronto. Their kitchen cabinets are beautiful in a rustic, artistic way. Sorab from Inde-Art told me that they use wood from decommissioned fishing boats and torn down houses from India to make the cabinets. The wood is mostly teak, and, after seeing the pictures, is quite stunning.
Cabinets are either custom-built or you can buy them directly from their showroom if you don’t need specific measurements for the space (free-standing kitchens are becoming more fashionable these days).
Cabinets can be either stained or painted depending on the look you’re after. As seen in some of the photos, they also do a distressed look, however, a natural stain will bring out the grain in the wood.
Cost: Is medium-end, however, it is dependent on the style, type of cabinet you choose (in-stock, premade or custom). Inde-Art can offer two different qualities of cabinet box and hardware depending on your budget.
Time: Again, it is difficult to predict how long a custom cabinet will take to make. Some of them are made in India, some are made in their warehouse in Toronto, depending on the wood and design style you choose. If the cabinet is not in-stock it could take up to three months to make. The company has recently started importing drawer and cupboard doors from India and making the boxes in-house in Toronto.
For more information about the cabinets, please contact Inde-Art or visit their website.
Inde designs have that aesthetic characteristic. I’ve experienced the beauty of their designs on my visit to India. They are so precise and only experienced hands can bring that cut on a wood, and that is the reason why they are so expensive. One of my friends actually fabricated such a design on metal from Bayview Metals, sheet metal fabricating company in Toronto, for his living-room walls. Imprinting such a design on sheet metals is much easier and most of the people prefer that; but wood has its own uniqueness and even I prefer wood.
Looks really simple yet so elegant. I come across great materials, and want to add them to my design. Thanks for posting.
