Who We Are

Furniture, Rugs and Lighting Manufacturing Agency

Pulga is a Portuguese production agency specialising in customised pieces for interiors: furniture, rugs, and lighting. Each piece produced by Pulga has unique features, exclusive to the request of each order.

Working exclusively for professionals, architects and designers, Pulga offers a set of solutions where the quest for the best result is imperative throughout the creative process.

Focused on ensuring pieces of outstanding quality, Pulga develops, together with its customers, high-quality work based on trust and sharing so as to guarantee excellent results.

What We Do

We transform different raw materials into one-of-a-kind pieces of beauty

Pulga has developed its skills and ​​expertise in the areas of furniture, rugs, and lighting, but, as it is always looking for new challenges, it is also able to develop skills in other design areas.

Pulga has formed partnerships with several companies, some with the best technology available, others with manual and traditional, deep-rooted knowledge, resulting in a broad solution which is adjusted to the specificities of each project.

Each piece we create tells a story. Your story. To dream up the piece is your job. Ours is to give it its shape and turn it into a reality: the beginning, the middle, and the end of a joint creative process, a perfect harmony between wishing and making it happen.

Of openly restless minds, the group that makes up Pulga lets itself be guided by the power of imagination and the wishes of others, in a fleeting and random process based on the immeasurable emotion of seeing something new being born each time a challenge begins.
