Cool Custom Furniture

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Cool Custom Furniture

Post by Milord » Sat Jun 21, 2014 2:14 am

What have you seen?

These are from a custom built Japanese style home designed and owned by a French-Canadian in northern Thailand.

Starting to get furniture (this concept, furniture, does not exist in the thai culture, they did not have a word for it, they borrowed and use "furniture").
I hesitate between no furniture, which is more in line with the traditional Japanese way, but a bit hard on an old farang ass, and having my own made, since comfort is absent here!
I will keep simplicity in mind, lines and zen.

Nice. You occasionally get glimpses of some stuff like this - nowhere near as nice, and suspiciously all same same - as you travel around PP. Is it likely to be cast concrete?

A lot of that "bark finish" stuff is.

That's the ones. Imagine a child's swing made out of that 'timber'.
