70 Years of Panesar Kenya – The Rich History of Bespoke Furniture
The journey of Panesar’s legendary bespoke furniture and fittings, is one sparked by unwavering passion for master carpentry and ironwork by Kundan Singh Panesar. Kundan’s family were well-known in India as intricate bull cart makers, and as his skills and talents quickly grew, so did his yearning to seek new horizons which led him to set sail across the seas onboard a dhow to Kenya in 1942. After the first few weeks of trying to find work, he was pleased to learn that he had been given an opportunity to apply his craft in making luxurious cabins for trains. It wasn’t long before his finesse to create the truly extraordinary was noticed and quite often by British colonialists in the country at the time, who regularly contracted him to grace their homes with timeless pieces that stand to this very day.
Who is Panesar’s
In 1948 Kundan began Panesar’s, and from humble beginnings quite literally carved a niche for itself in offering the finest bespoke furniture, interior pieces and fittings. Over the years the popularity and demand for Panesar’s designs continued to grow, and since then it has adorned some of East Africa’s most prominent individual’s homes, has served countless high-profile clients including numerous heads of state, presidential palaces, hotels, lodges, resorts, and now exports its alluring pieces globally to clients who have an affinity for their must-have works of art.
“While we are now one of the oldest furniture companies operating in Kenya, we are still very much the brand that my grandfather created over 70 years ago. From quality materials to the machinery and techniques that we employ, to workforce development, and skill enhancement, our operations are designed to produce flawless work.” – Vir Panesar
