The homewares brand Casa Cubista was founded by David Pimental and Arren Williams in the fishing port of Olhão in the Algarve. The idea was born purely out of a desire to share Portuguese design with the world. David has Azorean roots and his family has a history of craft, from weaving and crocheting to baking and woodwork. David is very creative himself and actually creates several of the pieces in the Casa Cubista collection. Arren also has a creative background, having worked as a style and design journalist in Canada. Together the pair spent two years travelling around the Portuguese countryside meeting the wonderful artisans who they work with today.

The Casa Cubista collection is made up of terracotta pottery and woven textiles, along with some recent exciting additions of stoneware and furniture items. We are thrilled to be able to stock a few of their beautiful pieces here at Lusophile. Known for its bold, geometric and colourful designs, Casa Cubista has been recognised by several prestigious publications as a destination where traditional craft meets contemporary style.
