About Us

The company, managed by German-born Aurovilians Coco and Clemens from their premises on aurorachna the fringe of the Auroville international township, employs a staff of 19 people, of whom 11 are carpenters and 8 polishers. They specialize in the restoration and supply of all types of colonial furniture, mostly from the 19th and early 20th century, but can also make high quality reproduction items on request. Work is done mostly using antique teakwood and other timbers salvaged from original furniture,and old buildings, thereby retaining the authentic ‘feel’ and quality of each item. The final waxing is done using imported wax from Italy to give a high quality finish.

One of the keys to Aurorachana’s success lies in its large network of agents plus artifact & furniture ‘hunters’ spread all over south India. Via this network Aurorachana is able to hunt down specific items on request, as well as ensure a constant supply of restorable – or immediately saleable – material.

In addition to delivery anywhere in India, the company operates an efficient import-export service, the latter by ship or air, handling all the packing, paperwork and despatch formalities. The cost is generally lower than that charged by agents offering similar services in Chennai or Pondicherry, thanks to lower overheads resulting from being located in a rural area.

Those interested to visit Aurorachana’s premises – showroom are always welcome, though it is best to make an appointment first before coming, to ensure that Coco or Clemens will be there to receive you. To visit follow the link.
