With an emphasis on craft and comfort, Abaca Loft offers a new collection of furniture and home accessories.
South-East Asia is home to some of the best treasures for home decor. The land offers a myriad of natural materials like teakwood, abaca, rattan, banana fibre, water hyacinth, bamboo, wool, stone, shell, wood, leather, coconut shell, etc. For over a decade, Abaca, a store headquartered in South Mumbai, has brought these treasures of South-East Asia to discerning buyers across India in the form of exquisite furniture and accessories.
Given the overwhelming support that Abaca has received over the years and taking into account the feedback and inquiries from their clientele and customers, Ms. Rashida Baker, Founder and Owner of Abaca, was encouraged to expand the range of furniture to include high quality leather sofas (crafted with premium Italian leather), handsome 4 poster beds (created from a combination of veneer and solid mahogany and teak), dressers, buffets, dining tables, dining chairs, eclectic print art, with a colourful array of accessories and giftables in wood, metal, ceramics.
And that is how Abaca Loft was born. The new store which has been recently launched in Mumbai
offers the finest collection of home decor to its customers ranging from indoor and outdoor furniture to a variety of home accessories. With an emphasis on craft and comfort, the collection at Abaca brings together a wide range of indoor and outdoor sofa sets, dining sets, deck chairs, hammocks, swings, coffee tables, consoles, terrace and garden furniture, bar stools, lamps, rugs, mirrors, gifts and home accessories and much more – each design hand-picked, each piece hand-crafted.
Abaca’s collection of indoor furniture offers a touch of natural elegance to living and work spaces. Be it an inviting water hyacinth sofa set, an exotic inlaid wooden console or a handsome set of barstools, every piece seamlessly blends form and function, and subtly redefines the space around it.
Talking about the new store, Rashida Baker says, “We’ve already received some amazing feedback from our customers who have previewed the store which opened last week. We have also included a range of beautifully scented candles and powder stone votives to set the mood for a romantic, fun filled evening. These are so popular with my clientele that I am delighted to share that they are being swept off our shelves!”
Abaca’s high-quality outdoor furniture is designed to delight and built to last, using special materials, durable surface finishes and water-resistant fabrics for cushion linings and covers.
Incorporating natural and man-made materials, Abaca’s elegant pedestal lamps feature a fibre glass base embellished with exotic materials like mother of pearl, coconut shell, twigs, and sea shells.
Its newly launched collection of wooden lamp bases is inspired by the earthy diversity of Asia’s tropical forests, gnarled and naturally-twisted wooden vines and roots, tree trunks and branches, all carefully washed, sanded and treated to reveal the raw beauty and rich grain texture that lies beneath. Fashioned into table lamps and floor lamps, each piece is painstakingly assembled with immaculate craftsmanship to create a rare blend of rugged, natural charm and innovative, contemporary design.
