Renowned furniture manufacturer A T Cooray (Pvt) Ltd began their journey of designing and manufacturing high quality pieces of furniture almost 90 years ago when its founder
A T Cooray who hailed from the southern parts of then Ceylon began trying his hand at carpentry. Intricately designed home furniture soon became his forte as he began to expand his workshop and hire other skilled artisans from the South.
Over the years that followed, A T Cooray furnishers became known not only for its distinct designs but also for the high-quality of each piece of furniture they turned out. As news spread throughout the country about the bespoke furniture, A T Cooray soon found himself spreading his wares to Colombo, Kandy and Kegalle with new showrooms being opened in 1946.
Today, recognized as the preferred choice for office furniture by many of the blue-chip companies and large conglomerates operating in the island, A T Cooray is also the fast becoming the go-to place for start-up ventures looking for value-for-money. The fact that the furnisher still operates out of one ultra-modern showroom in Colombo 3 is testimony to the emphasis they place on personalized service. Currently managed by the third generation of the Cooray family, the showroom invites customers to truly experience the office furniture of their choice before making that all important purchase.
Built on the ideals of exceptional quality, A T Cooray (Pvt) today stands for trust that has been passed down through generations of clientele. Both homes and offices of some of Sri Lanka’s most notable names are still adorned by furniture and interiors designed and manufactured by them. As the company steps close to its 90th year, it is now looking at broadening its horizons even further by tapping in to the young entrepreneur market that is flourishing, and catering to the growing demand for quality, elegant office furniture.
