The Worlds Away story began 25 years ago, importing from the jewel city of San Miguel de Allende, located in the foothills of the Sierra Madres. This protected and nurtured relationship preserves’ the time honored tradition of the art that exists here.
Drawing inspiration from around the globe, Worlds Away pieces expertly marry design aesthetics spanning a wide range, from high gloss lacquered pieces to geometric Mid-century shapes. Each case good, lamp, chandelier and mirror produced in our partner factories in Mexico is beautifully handcrafted with attention to detail. Only the highest quality Italian Gold and Silver Leaf are meticulously applied to our case goods and hand carved starburst mirrors, then glazed and aged to reproduce a superlative finish. Many of these pieces are created by smaller “bodegas” or small family run businesses, in which trades have been handed down for generations.
In our Memphis location, all painted products are completed by hand, by artisans that have been a part of our family from the beginning. Each item is especially painted per order. We truly are a team where everyone’s importance in the overall process is appreciated and truly a member of our family.
