FOCUSING on the key pieces of furniture for the home:

A PLACE TO EAT, REST, SLEEP AND WORK.


Objects with Meaning

The objects in our lives should be useful and beautiful, well thought through, and designed to last. As our experiences become layered memories, the reassuring presence of our valued possessions reminds us of our life’s journey. Objects that connect with us originate from a place of connection: creators invested in the integrity of their craft,  materials that appeal to the senses, consideration of the wider world. At De La Espada we build for life; furniture that ages well, with enduring relevance.


Luxury in the details

There is no greater luxury than time and personal attention. It is the small moments that define the whole of our lives; likewise, a product is the culmination of its details. From our design partners to our craftspeople, there is a deep engagement with our furniture, and a mission to make it as beautiful and enduring as possible.

No detail is too small for consideration, from the particulars of joinery, to tactility, to decisions over how to apply each plank of wood to showcase the individuality of its colour and grain. We define luxury as experience, taking the time to enjoy the process of creation, and passing this pleasure on to those who spend a lifetime with our furniture.


At home in the world

De La Espada is deeply connected to Portugal, home to our dedicated factory and many of the people who pour passion and skill into creating our products. The warmth and history found in Portuguese design and architecture is present in our work, combined with an international perspective brought by our homes in London and New York, and our collaborators in Stockholm, Venice, Shanghai, London, New York, and Istanbul. We work closely with our design partners, combining expertise and exchanging cultures, friendships, and ideas. De La Espada furniture is where the creativity of some of the world’s leading designers meets the highest level of European craftsmanship.
