Cane and rattan furniture used to be very popular some two or three decades ago. Nowadays, it is not easy to find such furniture not because it has become unpopular but because being labor-intensive and the price not commensurating the work involved, lesser people are interested in picking up the trade. Cane and rattan furniture is done by hand and some pieces can involve hardwork. Workmanship and precision are key factors in making fine cane and rattan furniture pieces.
Mass-produced furniture has now replaced this once-popular type of furniture. Truth be told, cane and rattan furniture is comfortable, dainty and elegant in its special way.
So, if you are looking to buy cane or rattan furniture and other rattan products, here is a source. Mr Tham Kok Cheong is a furniture maker and has a shop making such furniture. He makes the furniture himself with help form his staff.
Mr Tham can be reached at 019-382 5208.
In case you're wondering, this is not a sponsored post neither do I know Mr Tham. I just thought to share this information as there have been many enquiries about cane and rattan furniture in KL. Besides, I'd like to see this dying trade continue and I hope to contribute to this in my own little way.
