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 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. All La Puerta Originals products are handcrafted in Santa Fe, New Mexico!
Our commercial projects have ranged from recreating a Cuban bar and cafe, to stately ballroom doors, sales and work counters for specialty shops, massive doors and gates for car dealerships and private clubs and furnishings and architectural elements that add warmth and comfort to an assisted living facility.
We invite you to explore the different categories of our website:
Our Installations category features 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 a Kitchen Installation section 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 Portfolio 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.
The Portfolio category has subsections for easy viewing. This area of our website highlights individual pieces as they come out of the shop. You can browse through hundreds of custom doors, furniture, cabinetry, and more.
We include plenty of variety on our website, but it is still only a small selection of our large body of work over 20 years. We can work with you to achieve your vision for your home, whether it is a magnificent front entry, or solid wood custom kitchen cabinets for your dream kitchen. The antique material we incorporate is one of a kind, the craftsmanship is unequaled, the results are extraordinary. Let us build an original for you!
