Inside the World of Teracea - Factory Tour

Inside the World of Teracea - Factory Tour

By Design Interiors had the amazing opportunity to tour the Teracea Factory in Mexico this past week! It was truly incredible to see up close and in person the amount of beautiful handcrafted detail and thoughtful care each step of the process is given! Teracea prides itself on being a unique and different high end furniture line by using unusual recovered lumber, reclaimed woods and by using an artisan system to produce each piece.

One of the first things that we noticed upon entering the factory is all the craftsmen working with their hands on individual pieces of furniture! There are no assembly lines or machine produced furniture here! What you do see are ebanists, carvers, marquetry makers, polishers and varnishers.




The range of Teracea’s furniture spans traditional, transitional and modern. There is literally something for everyone’s design tastes! This stunning inlayed chest is so impressive with its detail!

This grand mirror is meticulously put together with varying sizes of trim for a sensational affect!


Teracea also makes gorgeous wood floors!

Custom designs are original and meet the needs of the individual client. This client loved the circular version of this table but wanted it in an oval shape to best fit the room. Teracea did not disappoint!

They also design custom art pieces like this beautiful one!

Our tour continued to a second factory where they produce the impressive Selva Maya collection. This collection is a combination of the raw, natural beauty of nature, retaining the essence of these one of a kind pieces and handcrafting them into functional furniture. The results are stunning! Here you can see a sample of the process a storm recovered log goes through during finishing.

In this video, Andres explains the drying process of the slabs and how they ensure stability in the piece.

These slabs are air drying in the beautiful Mexican grasses!

Different techniques can be used to enhance the slabs such as bleaching and charcoal processing with appealing results!


The natural beauty of these one of a kind slabs is simply amazing!

We love being able to offer our clients Teracea furniture for their homes and now we can tell them first hand about the quality, uniqueness and care that goes into every piece made!

Happy Designing – By Design Interiors
