Our furniture design and production stems from the Oporto area, a northern region in Portugal with a long and strong tradition in artisanal handmade furniture. Our design identity is based on modernizing the architectural and artistic heritage of the past 5 centuries, both Portuguese and international, while seeking to evoke emotions through its pieces. Our unique furniture offer is defined as a preference for noble woods and our artisan’s expertise in different wood crafting techniques.
Similarly to what happened in the Age of Discoveries, Malabar aims to design unique pieces of high refinement with a Portuguese signature. Sophisticated, seductive and enthralling, the pieces of our collections include furniture and furnishing accessories.
We drink from the Portuguese soul and tradition, recreating them, breaking barriers, expanding borders with sophistication, charm and passion. Mission Conceive sophisticated and captivating pieces that arouse emotions with our signature Lusitanian design and craft. Vision Representing design excellence and to become internationally recognized in promoting the best of Portuguese design and craftsmanship.
To create our unique furniture offer, comprised of seductive pieces that tell a story, we make use of the noblest woods, different crafting techniques, and above all, Portuguese heart, soul and tradition. We like to call them pieces and not products because we believe we create pieces of art that rise above its function. Malabar’s furniture and interior decor accessories are a perfect fit for modern homes with a taste for the classic or classic homes with a taste for contemporary, minimalist or even modern nature inspired furniture. Concept “Malabar” derives from the Malabar region in southern India. During the Age of Discoveries, the Malabar black pepper was one of the oriental spices that were brought to Portugal by the adventurous sailors.
