Here’s  a great video which captures wonderfully the inspiration for our Hacienda Furniture Collection. As you watch it, you will feel like you have gone back in time; however, this hacienda is alive and thriving in Mexico, 45 km from Merida by car.  This is unusual, as most of Mexico’s haciendas have now been abandoned and are no longer in operation.  On the early portion of the video you will be able to see the colonial architecture we so love in Mexico, as well as examples of Hacienda furniture pieces, wrought iron a...

Over the years, we've worked hard to find the best way to handle furniture delivery costs. Mexico is a big country. Shipping and delivery charges in Mexico actually vary wildly. However, one of the benefits of having been in business for over ten years is that GringoFurniture has delivered furniture to just about to every corner of Mexico.  We've worked with and sifted through numerous shipping and delivery companies.  The several that we've retained are trustworthy, thorough, and they specialize in furniture delivery. We have develo...

  Once again we hear of a wonderful place in Mexico through our friends at Yucatan Living.  Many thanks to the Working Gringos for everything they do to communicate their passion for Mexico and to share their advise, skills and expertise! In Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, one of our very favorite cities is Merida. We were so moved by how kind and friendly people in Merida are, by the beauty of the markets, the stunning colonial homes around the Centro, the hustle and bustle amidst an attitude of grace ... and the dynamism of this rapidl...

I just came across this article today thanks to our friends at Yucatan Living. I laughed when I read it, and wanted to share it with all of you. The things the article mentions really do remind me of Mexico and of the funny and not so funny experiences I have had there. Thank you to the folks at Matador for publishing it, and to Susannah Rigg for writing it. Here are a dozen habits that this person lost when he moved to Mexico. Enjoy! (end post).

  It’s a great idea to update your home’s décor by doing at least one new thing at the start of a new year. It brings new energy, new perspectives and -- some even say -- prosperity into a home.  I know sometimes there’s a limit to how much we are able to do to breathe new life, color and energy into our home environment. We may need to build an addition, purchase a new bedroom set, new sofa or a new dining room. But while we shop to find exactly what we want, we can still add interesting pieces and accents to spruce up our homes or ...
