Portugal is internationally renowned for its stunning furniture design, vibrant colours and high quality craftsmanship.
Here at Open Plan Living, we specialise in sourcing the finest handcrafted Portuguese furniture from a range of cutting-edge designer brands across the country and we offer a high-end bespoke design service.
You don’t have to travel to Portugal to enjoy its luxury interiors, handmade furniture or its striking, contemporary art and photography. We bring it to you.
Our idea for Open Plan Living happened in 2014, when we spotted the opportunity to bring high quality, handcrafted yet fairly priced Portuguese furniture to the UK market.
We developed our passion for interior design by working with designers during our respective careers. Now our dream has become reality, we are thrilled to work together, and alongside designers’ we respect and admire every day.
As a General Manager in the restaurant and hospitality industry for 16 years, I gained broad experience in new openings and I loved regularly liaising with interior designers.
Now as co-founder of Open Plan Living with Renata, I manage our sales and customer relations, making new contacts and meeting potential clients. I have always been passionate about interior design and home decor, now I love running a furniture business and bringing the Portuguese style I adore into our clients’ lives.
During my 15-year career as the Communications Director for a multinational building company, I worked directly with interior designers (decorating show apartments) and that’s where my passion for design and home decor began. As co-founder of Open Plan Living with Ana, I manage our logistics, brand partnerships and communication strategy. Every day brings exciting opportunities, I love seeing our brand and ideas brought to life.
From covetable sofas to striking paintings, we bring contemporary Portuguese luxury and style to your living, working or retail space.
We believe that beautiful, handcrafted furniture should be accessible to all. Therefore, we tailor our services to suit both your budget and personal tastes, with an emphasis on exemplary customer service.
