Furnestry is an evolving passion project, a labour of love, and, more importantly, a time capsule bridging traditional artistry with contemporary sensibilities. Born in 2020, when the world came to a screeching halt, we decided to forge an approach that allowed us to reveal the eloquent personality of wood that lost its appeal as fast furniture started gaining ground.

We are a proudly bespoke operation devoted to the art and craftsmanship of furniture-making. We spend our time reimagining conventional materials and recasting them in fresh narratives. As a result, our products are a triumph of experimental concepts as they celebrate creation processes.

At Furnestry, we craft enduring, versatile, and distinctive pieces that are timeless and on-trend. As design enthusiasts, we create functional works of art that bring a sense of warmth and wonderment to spaces.

The Team

At the heart of our studio is the dynamic husband and wife partnership of Ankur and Mansi Allen. Propelled by the passion for developing unique pieces with a material-first perspective, they realised furniture has the potential to embody personal sentiments. So they started creating designs, iteration-by-iteration, in the only way they knew how: experimenting.

Mansi Allen:

An interior designer by training, Mansi was always drawn to everyday practical objects and their ability to simplify and enrich lives quietly. After collaborating with renowned design professionals for years and gaining recognition for her experimental creations, she phased into the most natural point of her career: the launch of her studio. A locus of ingenuity informed by her viewpoint and vision.

An aesthete and evangelist for made-to-measure furniture, Mansi believes that when a piece is made with time, purpose, and artisanal traditions, it becomes an intimate part of the users' story.

She cites her love for nature as the wellspring of her creative energy. When Mansi isn't sketching furniture silhouettes and working on unique material symphonies, she can be found with her trusty camera, capturing beauty as she traverses the world with her go-to travel buddy, Ankur Allen.

Ankur Allen:

An engineer, intellect, and entrepreneur, Ankur is the technical nous to Mansi's creative adventurism. His chemical industry background helps us develop structurally sound and enduring furniture that stands the test of time.

Ankur's technical training and design curiosity enable him to care for both the method and aesthetics. In addition, his penchant for staying on top of emerging developments takes him on design weeks and festivals worldwide.

With a multi-faceted experience in engineering and management, Ankur parlays his dynamic skills to Furnestry's marketing, communication, financial, and day-to-day operations.

We envision creating pieces that reintroduce the design-curious to the dwindling, artisanal practices and focusing on furniture as a force to steer towards sustainability.
