BohriAli is a company founded by non-designers. We have never attempted to hide that. We always felt a little out of place when people associated us with artists and design experts. Sometimes we were manufacturers, sometimes we were retailers- but there was something about these river table, and the art of combining grand slabs of solid wood, with the fluidity and flexibility of the epoxy resin & hardener we had been selling for years.

As we started our journey, and began reading about homes and architecture- we learnt how many aesthetics there are.
From modern chic, to traditional, from rustic to minimalist- there was an audience for every river table we made.
We didn’t know where we fit, but somehow these river table managed to fit into every home, so seamlessly that it was almost strange to watch.
Working with wood is FAR from easy. Maybe that’s why we feel so attached to every epoxy river table we make. Each slab of wood is carefully vetted. It has to be seasoned and strong. If the wood is wrong, the project is ruined. That's why we use only the best epoxy resin in India from BohriAli to complement and complete the structure of our river table. We spent several years studying and identifying woods. We saw the variety of colours, the variety of patterns and the amount of possibilities this seemingly basic raw material brings. It was incredible.
We made it a point to work with salvaged wood. Often we are asked how we make our products the most environmentally sustainable versions of themselves, and one of the primary ways we do that is by using repurposed wood. Wood that would have otherwise been cut and processed, is instead seasoned and rebuilt to give birth to a piece of furniture that adds to people's homes.
Solid wood has a charm like no other.
In fact, the old BohriAli office was at a Wada, which is a wooden house extremely significant in Maharashtrian culture. You will still find many of these beautiful solid wood structures in old Pune. These were so brilliantly built that, albeit over three decades old, we were able to repurpose some of the windows and doors and create tables out of them!
The wood is truly the hero, and we have spent so much time studying and understanding how it works. We want to respect and honour that wood was once a living, breathing object and has its own set of features and flows. We also try to bring out the elements and character of the wood.
Working with colour has also been a journey. The parent company (quite literally) of BohriAli.com, is the A.A Hakim Paint store. As connoisseurs of pigment and hue, we loved using resin to add colour and a whole new dimension to solid wood furniture.
Each piece we create is handcrafted and finished to perfection. Each of our epoxy river table is intrinsically unique, we cannot recreate it even if you gave us all the money in the world. Each piece has given us the opportunity to meet incredible families and see beautiful homes that we hope to be a part of for a long, long time.
We love our river tables, unabashedly so. The process, from conceptualisation , to manufacture and delivery, fills our hearts with the spirit of design and always gives us a story to tell!
