From the modest beginnings of a twelve square metre workshop and a passion for design, was born the legend of Carlos La Woodworks. Today, Carlos La boasts over a decade of distinguishable clean-lined designs whose manufacturing and installation procedures are built upon the company's ethos: client relishing in quality end-products.
At base camp in Retreat, Cape Town, staff with a keen eye for detail, as passed on to them by the company's name-sake, form the team of Carlos La Woodworks. Having started out with just Carlos La, the team exploded to eighteen in 2006 as the demand for Carlos' work in the shop-fitting, customized kitchens and furniture markets grew. Carlos believes that working with his employees, as opposed to have them work for him, has brought about the accomplishments of the team.
High profile clients such as Vida e Caffe (stores done nationally), Osumo (Western Cape stores), 12 Apostles Hotel (Oudekraal, Cape Town), Ocean Basket (stores done nationally), Aston Martin (V & A Waterfront, Cape Town), La Cascades (Bantry Bay, Cape Town) form part of the company resume that reflects Carlos La's wonderful success and esteemed level of well-branded product and professionalism with service. The secret to success has been the fusion of client input and inspiration as well as the teams' design skills, experience and knowledge that permanently grows with the current top interior concepts.
