Today De La Espada is a groundbreaking firm in the field of developing powerful brands for high end home furnishings consumers around the world. We call ourselves a design management firm and currently manage the De La Espada brand alongside four other brands. In most cases we partner with leading designers who art direct their own product lines. We also promote younger or lesser known talent, giving these designers or design offices a platform upon which to build their own brands.

Our story as a manufacturer is moulded by our interest in craft based materials. De La Espada is a leading designer/manufacturer of modern solid wood furniture, founded by Luis De Oliveira and Fatima De La Espada in 1993. Hailing from Porto and Madrid respectively and educated in London, the founders opened the first De La Espada store in London in 1996, when there was comparatively little quality contemporary furniture in the city. De La Espada's dedicated factory in Portugal specialises in hand crafting and traditional construction methods to create modern furniture with timeless appeal and the warmth of solid wood. The De La Espada aesthetic evolved from influences including the Arts and Crafts movement, architects such as Tadao Ando, John Pawson and Alvaro Siza, as well as Scandinavian design from the 1950s.

De La Espada furniture as well as that of the brands it manages can be found at its dedicated flagship retail store in New York, as well as a growing number of retailers of fine contemporary furniture worldwide. Our New York office handles most of our wholesale business, with marketing and press relations run from our London office. Product development and manufacturing take place in our facilties in Portugal. De La Espada's expert touch is also found in the brands Autoban, Leif.designpark, Matthew Hilton and Studioilse.
