furniture to go …

I had posted earlier about my fascination with some old furniture I checked out in Oshiwara. But better advice prevailed and all plans to buy that have been ditched. For a couple of reasons — serious restrictions when considering interiors for the house that we will eventually buy, and the damn things are two heavy to shift.

Ordered a cane sofa-set instead, along with a computer desk that can be dismantled, and two metal storewels, but not from Godrej, at half the Godrej price. Basically things that can be shifted when we move to yet another rented house later, and can be disposed off with very little repentance, once we have our own house.

Forecasts say that we will have to shift residence a maximum of two more times before we settle in a house of our own.


Shifted this weekend from a rented flat in Powai to one in Dindoshi … quite close to Dindoshi Depot. It means a hefty increase in my commute time, going from basically nil to 40-plus minutes! But this will be good for Meenal, who’s work is shifting to the new IFlex building near Movie Time.

Currently living out of boxes since we have no furniture of our own, and the flat has none. Made one visit to the old furniture shops in Oshiwara … excellent stuff! Plan to start by buying a refurbished entirely-teak closet for clothes. We were also eyeing a counter with drawers and cupboards underneath, that would be just right for the TV.

More updates as things happen!
