Just came back fr Bangkok . Went to Chatuchak market there & saw many great furnishing pieces ie a lot buddhism-influenced wood carvings, silk curtains, statues,pottery. Does anyone know of any place in Klang Valley that may carry those items? Would appreciate any suggestions. Tks.

mWong is right. Central Market has a rather cramped up shop upstairs with loads of carvings.
Another place slightly more upmarket is in 1Utama InspirAsia (http://www.1utama.com.my/Tenant/TenantView.aspx?id=S40B&Page=0&Category=Home%20Interior&Search=)

Guess we dont have to remind u that the prices wont be quite so low like in Thailand though. :)

Saw a few stalls in Sunway pyramid new wing but a bit pricy compared to bkk, another place to try would be those thai fairs but of course not so nice ones but cheaper as compared to former.

there is one moving around in subang, it was at giant lately but i think they have moved to another location. i saw one in giant k.jaya a few weeks back u can try there.

Tks guys. Do keep me posted if you come across one of those Thai fairs near you.
By the way, has anyone been to that Houz Depot near IKEA; is it a good place for interior decor stuffs. Are the prices cheaper than elsewhere (in terms of house 'hardwares' like sink basins, toilet bowls/fixtures , paint etc)?
Happy New Year!
