Cartaya Design was created by its innovator, Julio Cartaya, whose passion for furniture design helped him to achieve his first goal of coming to the United States. Having come from Cuba in 2006, Cartaya repeated his studies here and obtained his Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Design. While in school, he continued to design furniture and brought his designs to life by creating each prototype by hand and using an array of materials including fiberglass, leather, wood, carbon fiber and others.
In his time in the United States, Cartaya
has been fortunate enough to exhibit his
furniture in Art Basel 2012 at the “Poltrona
Frau Group Miami”, as well as other small
galleries in the city. This has helped him
create a name for himself and his designs and
he is forever grateful to those who have
believed in him and his work.
Clients who approach Cartaya are looking for something unique and different; a piece of art that also serves a purpose or has a function.
Each of Cartaya's pieces are an original
design which are made from the finest materials
with exceptional craftsmanship. Because of
this, Cartaya Design offers a
generous warranty on each piece of furniture
that finds its way into your home or
"From pencil to polishment, I am the one who brings these designs to life. Having others love them the way I do is the greatest compliment."
In addition to his existing designs, Cartaya will help to design the piece or pieces that are right for your home, yacht or business. This allows the client to partake in the design process and allows Cartaya to evaluate the space or spaces the client wishes to furnish. The finished product is a custom piece brought to life with the client's wishes in mind.
