The Design comes naturally.
The design of this chair came naturally because of the historic connection to its designer. There are stories passed through generations that often serve as a spark to create something extraordinary.
The Portuguese Roots chair was like thas, a Master with an extraordinary story to tell, a good listener who knew how to rewrite it and a talented young woman who fell in love with it and spread the word Around the World,
When you find a good idea, you always need someone who believes in it to make it work.
So what more can we ask, when the believers are the ones who came up with the idea?
The Portuguese Roots Chair was made of true believers, Soraia Rangel with proven experience in Marketing and Advertising and Alexandre Caldas with 25 years of experience in furniture industry . Is this know-how and the love for stories , that causes the rise of this chair in a most sustainable way.
With the drive and the respect we have for nature, our goal is to embrace the Portuguese traditions and culture.
For us PORTUGUESE ROOTS CHAIR is not just a brand, but a badge we wear with honor. And we want to continue to believe that this love and respect are the foundations that allow us to innovate and always give the best of ourselves to our customers.
