Welcome to La Puerta Originals
Our products are designed in collaboration with you and/or your design team to produce a single piece, or an entire house package, whether you are remodeling, or building your house from the ground up. We can enhance the entry to your home with a custom door, or design your dream kitchen, customized to your exact needs.
We are committed to using environmentally sound practices that start with using salvaged wood doors and other architectural antiques from around the world. We create each piece by incorporating material such as antique Mexican doors or intricately carved surrounds, with the antique material inspiring the design of the product.
Our expert craftsmen and finishers are unparalleled at seamlessly incorporating salvaged wood and matching patinas. Our finishes are non-toxic and environmentally friendly.
Our inventory, on four+ acres in Santa Fe, New Mexico consists of the world’s largest showcase of antique materials in the U.S., and includes an 18,500 square foot manufacturing facility. More than 5,000 doors, columns, corbels, surrounds, shutters, and timbers, dating from the 18th through the early 20th Century have been collected through the years from countries in Europe, Southeast Asia, Mexico, South America and Northern New Mexico. Examples include antique Spanish doors, intricately carved surrounds from Asia, salvaged barn wood from the U.S.A., antique iron work from India, antique Mexican doors, antique ceiling tins from Europe and antique hardware from all over the world. All La Puerta Originals products are handcrafted in Santa Fe, New Mexico!
Our Project Portfolio section features installation photos of a great variety door projects around the country, and includes some original products such as palapas bars, libraries, gates, bathroom vanities, entertainment units, New Mexico style furniture, wine storage and much more.
Our Signature Kitchen category features Custom Kitchens – installation photos showing the diverse styles of our clients’ custom kitchens. In this section you get the full effect of the completed project – countertops and appliances are installed and you can see how the solid wood kitchen cabinet doors work in a fully functional kitchen.
The Kitchen Cabinets section highlights individual pieces as they come out of our shop. Some cabinets feature our solid wood countertops and some are shown without countertops, as stone or granite countertops will be installed on site.
