That said, one needs to understand that all range of products are available to fit major pockets.
Brands like Sanjar are known for its imported brand KUKA sofa range costing anywhere roughly between (1.5 lakhs to 5 lakhs). They are sole distributor of Kuka sofas in India known for it elegance, classy looks with best quality imported leather. One of the another very famous showroom at this market is InHomes as they are the oldest showroom at this Bhiwandi market with huge collection and wide range of furnitures for all purpose.

How to Verify Furniture Quality
Although there are wide range of products and each product has its own quality check-list and range, I will try with a small example. With a personal experience of purchasing a Sofa set. I got some idea on the leather used and other materials used inside. Here is what one should know while purchasing a sofa.
- Pure leather, Imported quality leather used in branded sofa only. This will be costly and starting range will be more than 1 lakh and more.
- Good yet local quality leather used.
- Artificial leather used (Not recommended as it peels off in a year or two).
- Cloth like fabric material (I Forgot the name), But it looks like Velvet shades. As they say, This is comparatively cooler than leather for long time seating.
- and few more..
Simply understand, many furniture showrooms here has one or two range of Imported / Branded products which has best quality leather and other material used. These are premium range of furnitures costing high with good guarantee or service warranty provided by these dealers. This products will last longer and product quality will be intact if used and handled as guided by them.
Another good quality range of furniture is made by the showroom brand them self. The only difference between an imported OR branded furniture and their own brand is the cost and quality feel & texture with looks. These shops also provide equal guarantee on their own manufactured furnitures which are equally good in quality. Its up to your likings and financial capacity to select the product you like.
We got some idea on leather used in sofa now, One more thing to know about is what material is used inside. Usually 2 things makes a sofa inside material, At seating area usually a hard density foam (40 to 45 mm) is used which makes seating solid & not soft. A lower density of 30 to 35 mm foam is comparatively softer, Combination of foam & cotton or recron makes the seating more softer too. The back rest area of good quality sofa always has soft recron inside. One should also look are the sofa stands (made up of wood or steel with chrome coating on mix material). Always ask for guarantee and you get an idea of things.
Types of wood used in furniture
Although i am not a master in selecting or judging quality of these furnitures, With my little personal experience that i will like share and help you. Every shop inside this furniture market has its own quality standards and material used, Branded and imported are exceptions. Below are some of the wood types one must know to ask few questions and clear some doubts.
- Hard wood (Long lasting & Durable)
- Ply with Vineer or Sunmica / Formica (Long Lasting & Durable)
- MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) which is made of wood particles & other material with high temperature that keep and looks like real wood. Then finally powder quoted that looks very beautiful & shiny. (Also called Chinese Board, Usually goes for 5 to 6 years).
- HDF (High Density Fibreboard). (Also called Chinese Board, Usually goes for 5 to 6 years).
- Particle board (Low Quality). Should not expect to long last or more than 2 to 3 years.
- and few more..
Furniture products made up of Hard wood & Ply wood has longer life compared to MDF which last for 4 to 6 years or possibly more depends on handling. Particle board material is said to be low on quality. MDF & Particle board has to be kept away from moisture else the furniture life ends soon. These showrooms inside Bhiwandi wholesale furniture market will never give any guarantee for MDF & Particle boards products. Only Imported & In House products receive their respected warranty & guarantees.Bargaining Options & Cost of Furniture
Yes, bargain do happens inside this market. If you are a regular customer, or a interior designer etc you know what is the best deal and what cost to pay for that furnitures. Imported furnitures has no bargain options.
According to my experience after visiting 3 to 4 branded & famous showrooms & couple of small shops in this market, I found most executives & sales person to be very cooperative and helpful. No one pushes the sale or try over do with their skills. They will help you with required information and best offered price for the product you ask for. Few showrooms do have stock clearance sections with best deals, But one needs to be aware of the reasons and smart enough to understand the quality and other things related to that furniture.
Talking about discounts and offers in this market, No seasonal sale like malls in city but usually they give about 40 to 45 percent discount on the listed cost of furniture. Many showrooms do not price tag furnitures. Remember, quality always has its cost and upon quoted the best price, bargain chances are very less here. A little last moment bargain is possible that may save you the transport cost of 2 to 4 thousand rupees etc. In Brief, Branded & Imported products don’t have bargain possibilities compared to their in house manufactured.
Wash rooms & Cafeterias
Please keep a note, Food options are very less here. In 2 Kilometres range there is no restaurant, food joints or cafe. One single restaurant inside compound and couple of vada pav vendors is what one can expect in and around this furniture market. Wash rooms are available at individual showrooms and few dealers are kind enough to offer you with drinking water and tea too.
