About La Puerta Originals
La Puerta Originals is a family owned and operated company located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The business evolved out of founder Scott Coleman's combined love of art, architecture and travel. As a graduate of SCI-ARC (Southern California Institute of Architecture) Scott was particularly interested in old world architecture, which he sought out on his extensive travels throughout the world. He noticed that many countries destroyed or abandoned their old buildings without consideration of the historical significance, the incredible workmanship and detail, or the valuable building materials. Soon, he was collecting discarded doors, pieces of beautifully carved wood, old iron work and other building materials bound for the waste pits. Collecting old doors and other reclaimed wood materials then became his passion and the sole purpose and focus of his travels.
As a custom home builder, Scott incorporated these old world salvaged pieces into his own building projects including rehabilitated antique doors, old gates, shutters, freestanding and built-in furniture and many other architectural elements, such as doorway surrounds and entry columns for the homes. These elements made the homes he built so unique and special that word spread and soon demand for his creations was such that he began to devote his full attention to the production and manufacturing of products made from his collection of antique materials - a new business was born. Now, 17 years later, La Puerta Originals has the nation's largest collection of architectural antique materials salvaged from around the world and is housed on 4+ acres, with a 18,500 square ft. production facility. A team of highly trained and equally passionate craftsmen and staff are the foundation of the success of the business. The company is regarded among architects and custom home builders as the go-to company for unique, handcrafted custom doors, gates, cabinetry, furniture and architectural elements for distinctive custom homes.
A commitment to preservation, reuse and reclamation of old handcrafted wood and other materials remains the cornerstone of La Puerta Originals' business. Our desire to create products of timeless beauty while preventing further deforestation is our passion. Our passion for the environment is equally shared with our commitment to provide our clients with the most beautiful and distinctive products and furnishings for their homes. Let us build an Original for you.
