Cochin - 682022
What you see – JK Roomscapes is a large furniture showroom near Cochin University of Science and Technology's (CUSAT) main entrance at South Kalamasserry. Housed on the second floor of a building with a glass façade, this furniture shop is the second from the same group in Ernakulam, the other being on Banerji Road.
What you get - The shop's main attraction is imported home and office furniture from Malaysia. Sofas, dining sets, beds, cupboards, TV stands, and office furniture made in compressed wood and natural wood are available here.
Since the furniture here is made of compressed wood, there is an unmatched finish. But for those of you, who find natural wood more compelling, the showroom also has a good collection of furniture made in Malaysian wood. Prices for furniture made of natural wood are on the higher side. For compressed wood/metallic dining sets prices start at Rs. 15,000 while for natural wood it starts at Rs. 28,000.
We also spot single seater and three seater sofas. These come furnished in good leather and also in velvet of premium quality. You can also place an order from the sample book and get a customized piece made. The delivery, they say, is done in 20 days.
Although the showroom’s mainstay is home furniture, we do come across some office furniture as well. These include desk, chairs, round table for eight / twelve chairs, cupboards, wall units and computer tables. Prices for these start from Rs. 5,000 and go up to Rs. 35,000.
All the purchases come with one year guarantee (by the manufacturer) and life time maintenance offer from the shop. There is also free delivery (within Ernakulam) for all goods purchased. They are ready to give a 10% discount on most of the items on sale (only if you ask for it).
Our verdict - In spite of the size of the shop you may miss it because of the IndRoyal (readymade furniture makers) showroom on the first floor of the same building. But avoid missing it because they do have some very good designs in their collection and unlike many other readymade furniture showrooms the furniture here looks more customized. The designs are contemporary and stylish. There is plenty of parking space available here.
