2018 is around the corner! The year flew but we are happy to celebrate our first New Years with you! To close this first year since De La Sol Home opened its doors, we decided to make decor resolutions for you.
Soledad Di Paola, our founder, curates the selection of De La Sol Home making sure it carries local artisan goods as well as rare global products. In every one of her picks she looks at product that: are made by the love of artisans that get paid fairly, respect the natural resources and are made of noble elements, respect the supply chain, and, most important, products that have a story to tell.
At De La Sol Home every product has a story. We embrace products with a story as that its soul, making it more special and unique. Products with a story emanate familiarity. For this New Years Decor Resolution, De La Sol team picks six different products, all made using natural elements: wool, cashmere, cement, elephant grass, sisal and glass.
