The inspiration for color can come from anywhere: A childhood memory, the finish remnants on a piece of antique material, a favorite painting or the vista out your window. We also have hundreds of samples on-site through which to browse and spark your imagination.
Using our proprietary techniques, our artisans create the most original and astonishingly beautiful finishes – custom colors, hand rubbed patinas, multi-colored layering and glazes– techniques that all contribute to a one-of-a-kind finish.
At La Puerta Originals, we choose to celebrate the history of an architectural antique – expressing the character of old wood, and highlighting the unique patina of years of use. Our craftsmen can seamlessly match existing antique finishes on reclaimed doors and cabinets, resulting in an old world feel, or produce a sheen that defines an ultra modern piece. We use non-toxic, water-based paints, sealants and other products, so the result is environmentally friendly, as well as beautiful and durable.
