Creating beautiful spaces

Creating authentic spaces both residential and commercial. When approached recently by a client who is in the process of creating a contemporary Mexican restaurant we were honored to be contacted about the products that we present on our website that are created by artisans in our studios in Mexico.
It obviously goes without saying that the reason we are compelled to return to the restaurants we love is because they recreate authentic cultural cuisines so perfectly that we become hooked and these moments are almost an escape. With some restaurants that serve dishes specific to a culture or a region it is not just the authentic food it is also the authentic environment that captures our imagination.
Over the course of many years We have worked with several different "Mexican / Latin restaurants" in assisting their efforts to choose the right furniture, lighting, and cultural accents / art that will not only best meet but also enhance their theme. We have also assisted in the development of a variety of decors for various commercial spaces whether they are restaurants, offices, casino spaces, themed events, and also many private residences. Many of the items that we present on our website are adaptable to a variety of decors. They are created by artisans in Mexico, but they are not necessarily “Mexican” in theme
We maintain a strong relationship with all of our artisans and the items they create, at the same time we also understand what many of them are capable of creating for special projects, and the desire to introduce unique and one of a kind items.
So, with that in mind, we tried to address a number of considerations that go into creating the most inviting and inspiring surroundings. Some of these considerations are the space itself, square footage and layout, the theme that is ultimately desired, budget, time frame, and don't forget about those building codes! Many of our project challenges have come down to our ability to manage these aforementioned requirements while successfully materializing an authentic space that meets both the ideas and inspirations each client has envisioned for their space.

Many of the artisan studios that Zenwaro has partnered with over the past 20 years have been led by women. More often than not, these women are mothers, which means they are also leaders by way of a set of lived experiences.

Origins of One-of-a-Kind
Origins of One-of-a-Kind

by Clayton Freeman October 13, 2022

Mexico's craftsmanship and artisanal heritage date back millennia and are not limited to only pottery and earthenware making. Stone carvers, wood carvers, carpenters, blacksmiths, silversmiths, and tin workers were part of Mexico's creator economy before the Spanish conquistadors appeared in the early 16th century.
