Our Legacy

 The story of this company has its genesis in a small town named Burhanpur in Central India when a boy named Husainbhai Firdosy was born in 1901. Husainbhai grew up in an environment conducive to creative exploration. As he grew up, there was an increased bent towards the artistic and aesthetic avenues of life.

An opportunity to do a certificate course in the prestigious Sir J J School of Arts in Bombay in the year 1920 came as a blessing for him. After working for a few years he decided to start his own business & amp; during this course of time, he travelled to different parts of the country experimenting with other businesses till finally in 1930 he settled to being a forest contractor. Having a strong fondness for the art he followed his desire to combine art and business and hence established a furniture store in 1934 in the name of A.H.Brothers – Cabinet Makers, one of the first stores of its kind in Nagpur. Over time, the store built a reputation for its workmanship and came to be known as an embodiment of excellence and quality. Under the aegis of its owner, the store became the most reputed furniture store in Central India. It was also awarded for its works for the Governor House, Airport, Central Museum, Imperial Bank and other prestigious institutions.

After the sad demise of Husain’s younger brother in 1942 the firm started to be known as “Firdos Furnishers”. During this era, the Art Deco furniture was flourishing and Husain Firdosy was able to establish his own style which eventually was known in the central India as “Firdos Style”. This was essentially an amalgamation of the Art Deco elements in a functional setup, using solid teak wood.


The business got a further boost when in 1962 Husainbhai Firdosy’s son Adam Firdosy uplifted the business to another level taking the clientele from government contracts to private users. He started designing furniture keeping in mind the practicality & economy for potential users.

The carpentry skills that he had acquired from his father since 1959 helped Adam Firdosy to master the intricacies of furniture making. Thus, the legacy of the “Firdos Style“was kept alive even in the modern context and the company started making furniture for banks, guest houses, offices, and private homes. In a country dominated by vast diversities, cultures & rituals it was a challenge to establish & maintain a unique style but Adam Firdosy was able to do this with his meticulous approach, determination and focus.
