Ames Living

Inspired by Colombia’s beautiful landscapes, colours and textures, Ames' vibrant and textural furniture and lighting collections are a feast for the senses. Collections are made in partnership with Colombian craftspeople working in small, family-owned ateliers, from Santa Marta to Bogotá. Artisans use locally-sourced fique fibres, iraca palm leaves, werregue grass and recycled plastic.

‘Every single product expresses the personality of their makers and honours a different facet of Colombia's traditional techniques.’
