WELCOME TO CASA BARRETO
Extravagance in Simplicity
Nature is our origin. It’s raw, exquisite and unique characteristics breathe life into our designs.
We combine creative expression with the force of natural materials into artistic furniture. A supernova of infinite possibilities of how to balance beauty with functionality.
The natural world isn’t perfectly shaped, cut out neatly to fit one’s idea of beauty. It’s wild, raw, rough around the edges, yet every element fits a grand ecosystem that is flawlessly balanced. This is the essence of each piece we create. A story that evolves from seemingly unglamorous origins to carefully finished masterpieces.
Born from a deep rooted curiosity to make the ordinary extraordinary, Barreto challenges the notion of furniture as disposable commodities. Our conceptual collections are innovative representations of the natural world that surround us, in a modern, intelligently crafted design, making its way into your home.
WHAT WE DO
We create with wood what wondrous woodworkers would.
MEET OUR TEAM
We used to operate from a small farm on the outskirts of Delhi, surrounded by nature, a brood of friendly hens, a couple of dogs and occasional visits from monitor lizards, snakes and mongoose. Now, with two little hatchlings of our own, we have shifted base to Bangalore where we have set up our workshop and continue our work. We’re a small team of people who love working with our hands and making extraordinary things happen from the ordinary. Our love for wood and it’s versatility in its use shows in the details and care for each piece of furniture we create.
At Barreto, we specialise in tailor-made, customised furniture, and aim to blow you away with our designs - while artistically balancing form and function with the endless possibilities that wood has to offer. Because we do all the work ourselves, making each piece from scratch and by hand, the wait once you place an order depends on the design, number of pieces you want and whether our hands are full with other ongoing projects. Nonetheless, our priority is to make sure we give you the best and even if it takes a wee bit longer, we assure you that it's worth the wait.
Our Chief, Greg Barreto, is the Captain of this ship, the creative mastermind behind Barreto. He envisions what few can imagine. With hard work and lots (and lots) of sweat, he turns his visions into reality.
Silvia, Greg’s other (better) half, is our resident wordsmith, putting words to the creations as she imagines Greg envisions them. Co-Founder, co-creator and first mate of this ship.
Shyambabu - our eager-to-learn, happy-to-do guy who just can’t stop talking. With a humble agricultural background, he turned his life around by honing new skills.
And special mention to our Baby Barreto - the little one keeping us inspired and for whom the future awaits.
We would love to meet you and welcome you to our casa. Schedule a visit and lets talk about what we can do for you!
