Sheesham Oak furniture is crafted from the wood of the Sheesham tree, also known as Indian Rosewood. It is a popular choice for furniture due to its durability, natural beauty, and rich grain patterns. Here are some key points to know about Sheesham Oak furniture:

Wood Characteristics
Sheesham wood is known for its distinctive grain patterns, which range from straight to interlocking, adding visual interest to the furniture. The colour of the wood can vary from light golden brown to deep reddish-brown, often with darker streaks. This variation in colour and grain makes each piece of Sheesham Oak furniture unique.

Durability and Strength
Sheesham Oak is a hardwood, known for its exceptional durability and strength. It is resistant to decay, making it a long-lasting choice for furniture. Its robust nature allows it to withstand daily use and heavy weight without easily showing signs of wear and tear.

Versatile Design
Sheesham Oak Furniture is known for its versatility in design. It can be crafted into various furniture pieces, including dining tables, chairs, coffee tables, sideboards, beds, and more. The natural warmth and character of the wood lend themselves well to both traditional and contemporary styles, making Sheesham Oak furniture suitable for a wide range of interiors.

Eco-Friendly Choice
Sheesham Oak is considered an eco-friendly option for furniture. The Sheesham tree is fast-growing, which means it can be sustainably harvested. Additionally, the wood is often sourced from well-managed plantations, ensuring responsible and renewable practices.

Low Maintenance

Maintaining Sheesham Oak furniture is relatively easy. Regular dusting and occasional polishing with a furniture polish suitable for hardwood can help preserve its natural lustre. It is advisable to protect the furniture from direct sunlight and excessive moisture to prevent any potential damage.

Investment in Quality
Sheesham Oak furniture is often regarded as an investment in quality craftsmanship and timeless appeal. The combination of its durability, aesthetic charm, and versatility makes it a sought-after choice for those looking for long-lasting and visually appealing furniture.

With proper care, Sheesham Oak furniture can grace your home for many years, adding warmth, elegance, and a touch of nature to your living spaces.

The Sheesham Furniture Range

The contemporary design of all the Sheesham Furniture pieces is bold yet minimalist with slimline chrome bar handles where used. The range is extensive and includes pieces for living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms and hallways. Many pieces are adaptable and can also be used in a study or work area. We’re confident you will find something special for your home in the Modern Sheesham range.

For maximum storage, there is the craftsman-made Large Sideboard. It has two cupboards and three central drawers. The sideboard is made using traditional joinery methods using dovetail joints on the drawers. This unit provides ample storage space in a lounge or dining room. For extra display space and to create the feel of a traditional sideboard, you can place the Multi Shelf unit atop the sideboard. This is a perfect place to display your favourite books, glassware and any other treasured possessions you wish to showcase.

We also have a range of chests of drawers that provide stylish storage. For all of your CDs or other smaller items, there is the CD Almirah which holds up to 200CD’s.


The 5 drawer Tallboy whilst traditionally is a bedroom piece, it’s useful to provide extra storage in a lounge whilst taking up only a small footprint. This chest is ideal to store books, paperwork, craft supplies helping your lounge to stay clutter-free.

Coffee tables

Coffee tables are invaluable in a lounge, somewhere to place a drink, a lamp or store magazines and books. Modern Sheesham has a range of practical yet beautiful coffee tables.


Firstly, we look at the nests of tables which are ideal if you don’t have the space to house a large coffee table. When stacked together they take up minimal space but can easily be moved around the room for family and guests to place a drink upon. They are also ideal as small lamp tables or a place to display a pot plant, a vase of flowers or your favourite photo frame. We have the Nest of three tables, a Nest of two tables and the Cube that fits snugly inside a table – all three are shown below.

Larger Coffee Tables

Our larger coffee tables are all craftsman made to exacting high standards with a distinctive and unique grain to each piece.

There is the Square coffee table, the Long John Coffee table with two smaller tables housed inside the first, ideal for an occasional guest coffee table. There is also the clean uncluttered lines of the Contemporary Coffee table with a lower shelf which is ideal to keep books and magazines.

If you prefer a more traditional shape coffee table with lots of storage, we have the Sheesham Coffee Trunk with its echoes back to a traditional apothecary table. Four drawers on either side provide handy storage for books, DVDs and other smaller items.

If clean simple lines are what you are after then the Block Coffee Table  or the Large Coffee Table are pefect, simple and stylish, either of these tables will be a valuable addition to any lounge. See the gallery below of our coffee tables available in Modern Sheesham.

Lamp Tables

Adding a well-placed lamp in your lounge can add atmosphere, create warmth and even help you relax. Any of our coffee tables can be used as lamp tables, but if you are looking for something a little different, why not try our S Unit or E unit. You can place a lamp atop and then display your favourite items on the shelf under. These units add interest to any room with their unique shapes.

Display units

A unique offering from Modern Sheesham, is our range of multi-shelf open display units. They have strong shapes and geometric lines and look great even when empty and look even better when your favourite possessions are displayed upon them. There are 9 different shapes and sizes of these display units. They start with a small 2 Hole Unit up to the larger Combination Display Unit at 1100mm wide and 1800mm high.

The unique ability of these display units is that they can be used alone as a statement piece, some can be placed atop a sideboard and all can be used together in any combination to showcase your books, ornaments and other favourite things. The larger unit is also ideal as a room divider to break up space between say a living and dining area. Being open, they won’t create a block wall in your lounge and you can see your possessions from both sides of the unit. As there are so many combinations of display units, we have created a gallery below for you to see how these innovative pieces of furniture can be used in your home.


Bookcases provide additional storage for items you wish to keep on display, ornaments, vases, glassware or your favourite photos. We have the solid back 3 Shelf Bookcase and a smaller open-back Slim Jim bookcase, perfect for a smaller footprint.

Our Modern Sheesham lounge furniture will add an exotic appearance to your lounge whether you choose just a few pieces to contrast your existing furniture or if you treat your home to a coordinated look using all Modern Sheesham furniture.

Bedroom Furniture

As the Sheesham oak is widely known for its durability and strength, it makes it a perfect material for large pieces of furniture such as beds, wardrobes and chests of drawers. Modern Sheesham furniture will make any bedroom in a modern home or older style property look beautifully stylish.


Undoubtedly the most important piece of furniture in a bedroom. A place to rest and relax, get a good night’s sleep and enjoy lazy lie-ins. We have two sizes of bed, the 5ft Kingsized bed and the 6ft Superking. Our advice would be to select the biggest bed you have space for. The more space you have in bed, the better nights sleep you will get.

The solid headboard gives support to its occupants whilst relaxing watching Tv or reading a good book at bedtime.

Both sizes of beds are constructed by craftsmen using traditional joinery methods and due to the strength and durability of Sheesham Oak, will last for many years and continue to provide a great night’s sleep.


The Sheesham Oak wardrobe is a large double wardrobe that provides full-width hanging rails with space under for shoes, handbags or folded jeans. The large drawer in the base is ideal for bulky winter clothes such as jumpers and sweatshirts. These elegant modern wardrobes with their beautiful natural wood tomes will make an ideal centrepiece of any bedroom.


To go with your modern Sheesham bed, we have the 3 Drawer Bedside Cabinet. Perfect to place a reading lamp and store your books and other items in the drawers. The unit is the perfect height to reach a morning cuppa or a bedtime drink from your bed. The clean lines of the design are enhanced by the simple yet elegant steel bar handles.

Drawers and Other Storage

To maintain a clutter-free bedroom, storage is of paramount importance in a bedroom. You need a place for all your belongings so you can easily find what you are looking for when rushing to get ready for work on a busy morning.

We have various chests of drawers including:

Any of the sideboards, bookcases and display shelves mentioned under lounge furniture can also be used in a bedroom to display and store your precious belongings.

Blanket Box

A blanket box is an ideal piece of furniture to store bulky items such as spare bedding, books shoes or bags. This box is also suited as a children’s toy box, a shoebox in a hallway or even as a craft supplies box or books/magazine storage in a lounge. It is a very versatile piece of furniture.

Dressing Table/Desk
If you are looking for an area to use as a dressing table or desk, try the Console Table. Placed against a wall with a Modern Sheesham Mirror behind it makes it the perfect dressing area with a shelf under it to store all your beauty apparel. It can also double up as an occasional work desk.

Dining Room/Dining Area

Whether your dining area is a self-contained room, an open plan area of your kitchen or lounge, Modern Sheesham Dining furniture will make a statement and provide a beautiful space to gather and entertain family and friends.

If your dining area is part of your lounge, this is where the tall display units act as a natural zoning divider between areas. If your dining area is part of your kitchen, the dark hues and natural tones in the Sheesham Oak blend perfectly with many styles of kitchen, modern or traditional.

Modern Sheesham Dining

Tables and Chairs


The first and most important piece of furniture in a dining room is, of course, the table. The size of the table will depend on how many people regularly eat at your table. The Large Sheesham Table will comfortably seat 6 with three people at each side of the table. At 1600mm wide there will be plenty of space to enjoy your meal. The smaller table at 900mm wide will easily seat 4 diners in comfort.

As the tables are made from very strong durable Sheesham Oak, they are also ideal to use for homework, crafts or just space to relax and enjoy a drink with a good book or magazine. The design of both tables is sleek, modern and uncluttered. When not in use there is plenty of space to store the chairs under the tabletop.

The padded upholstery will seat your diners in comfort whilst your dining room has a touch of modern luxury.
