Meet Helena and Richard Martinez, owners of Borboleta Decors!

How did your business get started?

Borboleta Decors grew out of a necessity to provide good, sturdy furniture for our five children. We loved the styles of Pottery Barn and Crate & Barrel, but we thought it was simply too expensive. We also loved the price of IKEA furniture, but those products lacked the structural integrity needed to withstand the demands of our children. With this in mind, we decided to formulate a crew of expert woodworkers and craftsmen, and created Borboleta Decors. Each of our craftsmen have a particular expertise, whether it’s a chair builder, Pedestal Table creator or our flagship, King over King Master Bunk Bed, we can create or replicate almost any item.

The company name came from the idea that owner, Helena (of Brazilian decent) and her love for butterflies (Borboleta) seemed very fitting – Borboleta Decors.

Provide a brief description of your services or products:

We can create almost any furniture item from wood. Initially, we discuss the needs of our clients, formulate a plan, and render a hand-drafted drawing to meet the client’s specific measurements. Once the draft is approved, the client signs off prior to production. We pride ourselves on designing items our clients  love that fit the need for a particular space AND color to match other furniture!

What has been your biggest success to date?

Our biggest success to date has been the creation of a custom made King over King Bunk bed with queen trundle. This is our flagship item and proves we can create almost anything from wood. We also create a corner table which is almost as popular to fit those awkward spaces in the home. We can create most items at a lower cost!

What do you enjoy most about doing business in South Pasadena?

We love doing business in South Pasadena because of the people! Everyone is easy going, which is what we like, with a small-town community feel. South Pasadena also has the best events!

Anything else you’d like to tell us about yourself or your business?

We’re passionate about creating something for you. If you have a need for an excellent-priced, custom piece of furniture, give us a call. We are very competitive on price and have over 45 – 5 STAR reviews on YELP! We always strive to satisfy our customers 100% and hopefully it shows…
