Modern Solid Wood Furniture

De La Espada was founded in 1993 by Luis De Oliveira and Fatima De La Espada. Hailing from Porto and Madrid respectively, the founders opened the first De La Espada store in London in 1996, when there was comparatively little quality contemporary furniture in the city. The De La Espada aesthetic evolved from influences like the Arts and Crafts movement, architects such as Tadao Ando, Luis Barragan, John Pawson, and Alvaro Siza, and Scandinavian design from the 1950s.

Specializing in solid wood, De La Espada’s dedicated factory in Northern Portugal unites industry with small scale production, advanced technology with handcraft. Their craftspeople take pride in their work and apply their expertise to create the most aesthetically and structurally enduring furniture possible.

De La Espada has a strong belief in the power of design to transform people’s lives, and their products are created with this in mind—the human being is at the center of everything the brand does.
