About the Company: The company was started in Mauritius in 1945 by Mr Ismael Maharaullee, with a workshop in Port Luis. It was quick to develop a reputation for quality and spread to three different locations in the country by 1960. In 2007, a ceremony was conducted to pay tribute the contributions of Mr Maharaullee to the welfare of the region. The second generation of the family business, led by Mr. Mustapha Maharaullee, a graduate in furniture design and manufacturing from London, expanded into South Africa. At this stage TFP became a one-stop solution for all home furnishing needs, including bedroom furniture, sofa sets, kitchen sets, timber flooring, bathroom tiles, toilets, sinks and even water tanks. By 1998, TFP had 350 employees engaged in manufacturing its products. The third generation has developed expertise in sourcing the best raw materials from across the world in order to deliver the highest quality products. They have also expanded to five outlets in the island of Mauritius and several others across the world. With the new outlet at Greenborough, Melbourne, The Furniture People has now made its foray into the Australian furnishing market.
