Consumers in India rely largely on mass produced furniture in an attempt not only to save time and money but also to avoid the colossal efforts and confusions involved in collaborating with a carpenter. Consequently, one’s vision is consistently compromised at every step due to the carpenters’ limited skill set or his inability to perceive the consumers’ tastes and requirements. We, at Shirkshop, identified this gap and are striving to design unique, high quality solid wood furniture customized to your tastes through an open source design platform. Our aim is to collaborate and participate with you in the joy of making your furniture. We conceive, prototype and test before we roll out our designs to you. If you are a furniture fanatic, or just a young working professional, single or married and are looking to spruce up your cozy corner in a crowded city, then Shirkshop is for you.
