Our client’s home is a serenely, beautiful space which showcases her love of South East Asia. She has effortlessly blended her Indonesian furniture pieces from Gado Gado with her other Asian treasures against a modern backdrop, to allow each and every piece to stand alone in it’s beauty. We’re thrilled she’s shared these photos with us!
The first snow fall at our new location sure looks pretty, but looks ARE deceiving! The falling snow, abominable gridlock traffic and ensuing icy conditions made for a day to remember . The morning started out clear and dry, with some early customers and a big delivery going out – but things changed quickly. The snow began lightly, but one thing I’ve learned living in Atlanta – weather changes fast and the South and snow are a terrible mix! While I was stuck in my car for 6.5 hours (for a 7 mile trip), finally having to walk the last mile home due to icy, hilly roads, staying put at the store was the safest thing for Setiawan to do. I’m happy to say he made it home safely this afternoon … and oh yes, it’ll be 63 degrees by the weekend!
We’re getting settled in our new location on Chattahoochee Avenue and our Showroom is open. All of our hand crafted, solid wood Indonesian furniture and art look right at home in our new space. Gado Gado is easy to find – right at the corner of Chattahoochee Avenue and Collier Road. Lots of friendly faces have already stopped by to check out our new digs and we’re enjoying meeting all the fresh faces finding us here. Gado Gado is in the building next to Nuevo Laredo Cantina and down the street on Collier road from Hankook Taqueria. Great shopping and great eats – can’t beat that!
Moving Gado Gado to it’s new location has been an overwhelming task to say the least! You never know how much stuff you really have until it’s time to move it! It was 10 solid days of hauling … with no break for Thanksgiving, but Setiawan, aka “Moving Master”, was a man on a mission. Thanks to him we made it! The crew from Bobadilla’s Signature Moving company was also a fabulous, hardworking team that worked tirelessly on the rainy, very cold days we had their help. No break for the weary though, as Setiawan is orchestrating the set up for the new showroom. It will be a work in progress for the next few weeks, so for those of you who stop in early on, we hope you’ll understand we’re still getting settled in our new home at 1483-C Chattahoochee Avenue. PS all of our handcrafted Indonesian Furniture is looking mighty fine in the new space!

Master bedroom project on the calender? How about using an Indonesian architectural panel for a one-of-a-kind headboard? These hand carved teak panels, whether reproductions or antiques, salvaged from old beds and doors make beautiful headboards. Design a master bedroom that is a personal, exotic retreat and a relaxing holiday may only be a few steps away!
Indonesian consoles and cabinets are beautiful alternatives to a traditional vanity that are sure to enhance your bath renovation. As I mentioned in a previous post, incorporating a hand crafted piece of furniture as a vanity is a great way to add some personality and unique style to your bath redo.
Many thanks to our client for providing the before and after photos. Both Indonesian console cabinets were purchased from Gado Gado. Many of our pieces are one-of-a-kinds and our inventory is always changing, so please visit the Consoles :l: Buffets Gallery to view our current stock.
