Colonial Collections was founded by Nilofer & Reshad Rustomji.
In 1990 the couple decided to leave their corporate careers and pursue their passion for furniture. Thus Colonial Collections was born.
The company, which was started in the Rustomji’s garage, began by trading in and restoring antiques.
As the years passed and their expertise grew, Colonial Collections evolved into a Furniture Retail & Manufacturing company specializing in custom-made crafted furniture. Antiques continued to inspire them to strive and maintain a high quality of craftsmanship and pay stringent attention to line, form, design, and detail. They aspire that every Colonial Collections’ bespoke piece is tomorrow’s antique.
Today they have a 10,000 square foot centralized production unit in Sewri, Mumbai that supplies furniture to their retail stores as well as their projects across the globe.
Nilofer & Reshad believe in a very involved approach to design and production, and even today every single piece of furniture is personally inspected and supervised by them.
As furniture companies around the world have transitioned into machine-made products, Nilofer & Reshad have remained authentic to their vision of providing bespoke, handcrafted furniture. Their unwavering commitment to their craft has enabled them to establish a distinct presence in the mass-produced and machine driven world of interiors.
All the furniture is produced in house and proudly MADE IN INDIA.
At Colonial Collections, we want you to enjoy the journey as much as the finished piece.
Furniture chosen from our existing product line can be customized with regard to the dimensions, fabric or leather & the finish. This is done through an interactive process between the Colonial Collections team and the client.
For larger projects we are also open to creating new furniture designs based on the 3D views, visual design package and brief shared by the client, architect or design firm.
Our production time is 6-12 weeks depending on the size and nature of the order. During this time, we invite you to visit our production units and watch your furniture as it emerges from carpentry to finish.
Our commitment to a project is an involved and detailed process. From the design selection process from our catalogues, to making site visits to verify measurements & review furniture layouts, to styling the space and selecting fabrics…we are with you every step of the way.
