Lucky's in Sharjah is worth a look if you want old Indian furniture. They have old pieces, pieces put together from old wood and also newer contemporary stuff. Couldn't comment on whether any would be genuine antiques, but not sure you could have that reassurance from anywhere here.
It's an interesting experience going there - three huge dirty, dusty warehouses with more furniture that you've ever seen, all stacked up and aisles just wide enough to walk through. You really have to look up, down and all around!
Prices have gone up, but still a fraction of what you'd pay at Marina. Some will say the quality is not as good, but I'm very happy with everything I've had from there. Some great accessories too.
