Furniture by Naula


Brooklyn, NY, United States

"Modern simplicity and old-world craftsmanship"
Modern simplicity and old-world craftsmanship mark the highest quality of custom furniture for design + build company Naula Workshop. Since 2002, founder and creative director Angel Naula has brought together a group of artisans and designers to create a workshop that thrives on the idea that, at its inception, each piece is of its own unique design.

“My work involves very specific elements of the traditional furniture I grew up building in my family’s workshop – the singularity of each piece, the craft and the skill – and fusing it with elements of modern aesthetics – the art, the design, and the functionality,” says Naula.

Symmetrically drawing the senses together – how it looks and how it feels – begins with an attention to detail that few furniture manufacturers offer. It is this philosophy and the group that sustains it that defines Naula Workshop.

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"My pieces come to life depending on the client and details.
If it's a sofa, I have to figure out how deep/density and the height of seat cushion.
If it's a bed, I need to figure out if we do the nightstands together and on the headboard if they'll need some outlets.
It's all about what the clients needs."
