Hardwood picks from Quinn Peaks



Quinn Peaks Furniture emerges as a powerhouse that marvels and makes marveled hardwood furniture ably guided by the firm’s lead designer, Carlos Nathwani. 

Driven by the belief that style and comfort need not be mutually exclusive or in design terms, form and function need not follow one another but can comfortably co-exist, Nathwani aims to make a whole new set of furniture that service varied budget demands in every three months.

“It is this philosophy that guides us to bring to you contemporary products that incorporate the latest in global styles and are well suited to meet the needs and requirements of our discerning customers – some of whom are outside East Africa,” he says.

Teaming up with his sister Anju Patel to offer nothing less than quality, the duo started the furniture making business in 2004, when major office and residential developments in Kenya’s property market were just picking up.

All the Quinn Peaks solid furniture is handcrafted in the firm’s own workshop by expert joiners located along off Mombasa Road near the turn-off of Libra House. This according to Nathwani differs from most  furniture stores that buy in mass items from large scale factories, often assembled by unskilled workers. For this reason Quinn Peaks are happy to tailor any furniture to fit your home or lodges.

From Quinn Peaks’ recently opened showroom at Viking House in Westlands along Waiyaki Way, the furniture powerhouse has ensured that it maintains its lead in supplying top quality handcrafted solid hardwood furniture at realistic prices.

From a range of mahogany sleigh beds, chests of drawers, dressing tables and wardrobes for the bedroom, dining tables, chairs, cabinets, bookcases, and office desks, plus freestanding pieces for the kitchen in solid teak, all with a dark or light natural wax polish or painted finish Quinn Peaks affirms of its cut-out standards.
