Quality and Environmentally Certified!

As a direct result of our efforts to make our company a better one, we have received our ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 14001 (Environmental) certifications last month. The path to our certification was one that shook the conventional structure of our organization resulting in a truly important transformation in the way we carry our everyday business.

More important than that, is the fact that we are all now in a continuous improvement mode, and all our clients will notice the change gradually but surely. In addition, if our eco credentials were good, now they are certified flawless.

Clean, Simple and Affordable

Sometimes creating the perfect mood for a living room is simpler than we think. While modular systems have always been seem as a way to somewhat customized furniture to ones need, few modular designs are inventive enough to allow you to do the same practically on a daily basis. TemaHome’s Domino bookcase system and the Dune family of Sofas. Inspired on TemaHome’s heritage, both family of products were created to either stand alone or work modularly. The versatility of the Domino is on its ability to be quickly moved and configured without any tools whatsoever. In the other hand, while the Dune family of Sofa is becoming known among our customers for its affordability and comfort, it can also be configured to match your space allowing to add or subtract modules as you wish. So get creative! It’s your space, have it like you want, every other day of the week.

Karim is in the house!


Not often one has the opportunity to witness, never the less to participate in the creation of something new and exciting. In that note, I wanted to officially welcome one of the greatest names the design world has ever met into our family. Karim Rashid. A living legend, Karim has created over 3000 designs in production today in some 35 countries and for the very first time he will be working with a Portuguese furniture brand. Karim is the first international name to be integrated in our hall of designers as we ready ourselves for the development of our 2010 collection. We are honored that he accepted to work with us after reviewing our showcase of the Lisbon Collection in New York’s ICFF and truly feel that his interest in working with us is yet another proof that we are on the right track. Karim is known for his passion for democratic design and often attends to conferences globally disseminating the importance of design in everyday life. With a knowhow that crosses every design boundary and typology, we are certain that Karim's creation for TemaHome will be a remarkable success.

Zenith: A new breed of modular systems

Modular systems have been around for a very long time and not very often one has the opportunity to witness the birth of something really innovative. The Zenith, design by Délio Vicente brings a new perspective into this area. Made in two distinct sets that can be combine into a number of compositions, this system can be used both as a shelving system or as a true room divider thanks to its generous height.


The elements in the Zenith are arranged in a grill pattern composed by equal orthogonal spaces resulting in a good formula to organize objects. In line with the latest trends, the system distorts the conventional way in which traditional systems work and delivery a dazzling visual effect expressing a strong design identity.


From every angle you get a different view and thus, a distinct ambiance to the room. The distance between each shelving respects fixed coordinates following the M32 metric production using the Fibonacci spiral adding character to the product. Add all that to the cute acrylic color drawers and you have truly a new breed of modular systems.
