TFP was born from the vision of late Mr. Ismael Maharaullee in 1951 who established his furniture business in Port-Louis. Within years, the family business then known as Magasins Amdoo opened two additional showrooms, in Port-Louis and Rose-Hill. Mr. Ismael Maharaullee was recognized for his contribution for the welfare of his region and achievements in 2007 through an official ceremony.
The second generation took over in 1979 through Mr. Mustapha Maharaullee. He set up his first official showroom of TFP at Eau Coulée, which was then known as “Multi-Collection”. A graduate in Furniture Design and Manufacturing at the University of South Bank Polytechnic and London School of Furniture in England as well as a certified member of the Institute of Wood Science, he launched his own factory at Wootun Lane, Eau Coulée in 1980. Since then, the family business started to expand rapidly and throughout the years changed its name to The Furniture People. It became the first Mauritian company to open a factory branch in South Africa in 1995.
The torch is passed on to the new generation in 2004. Always placing customers first, TFP has evolved into one of the major players within the retailing business by diversifying its range of products to include electrical appliances, flooring, sanitary wares and many more. Following its new strategy, TFP has extended its imports of furniture to France, Indonesia, Brazil, South Africa, Malaysia, China and Vietnam in 2013.
With its continuous expansion, the family business crossed the ocean to land its first sofa showroom in Melbourne, Australia in 2014. The following year saw the opening of its new department, Kitchen Center - cuisine.mu, which is specialized in the manufacturing of custom made kitchens at competitive prices.
A one stop shop with 7 retail outlets situated in strategic locations throughout the island and a sofa showroom in Australia, the story started by late Mr. Ismael Maharaullee has adventures still to tell.
At TFP, we take customers' satisfaction seriously. Our reputation goes by it. We make it our obligation to always give it all to put our customers' interest first and exceed their expectations. We love what we do.
