We are makers of handcrafted, quality furniture and home accessories. At our heart, we are innovators and designers.
We are passionate about the details.
Our designs are defined by their streamlined, organic aesthetic and lend a contemporary appeal. To us, a balance of form and function is vital and each of our products are designed keeping comfort and use, in mind.
All our products are handcrafted locally by skilled craftsmen which gives us complete control over the manufacturing process. We use the best quality materials to ensure that our products provide practical and enduring home solutions. So you can be rest assured that when you buy our handcrafted furniture online, it’ll serve you in the years to come.
We understand that designing a home is no easy task. You can choose from our range of furniture available online or contact us for your custom furniture needs. With our own production studio, we cater to residential and commercial custom furniture requirements.
While our range of stylish pet furniture may convey our affection for animals, it does much more! We care about the strays out there without the security of a home, access to regular food and safety from physical violence. With each piece of pet furniture we sell, we contribute to the committed team at Tails of Compassion who ensure a safe haven for these beautiful creatures.
Karan Bakshi discovered his love for woodworking early on, tinkering on furniture with his father, as a kid. After completing his Masters in Engineering in 2009, he followed his heart and set up a workshop, learning woodworking techniques. Over a decade of designing and developing products, from upcycling, industrial, eclectic, he found his niche in contemporary design. It is his aesthetic of simplicity and clean lines that defines the design at Lap and Dado. Karan can almost always be found in our workshop, working with our carpenters on a new design or admiring the gains on a new batch of wood.
