PS… Contact us if you, or someone you know, would like to participate in this series! Enjoy.
I am Nathalia Torres, an entrepreneur driven by creativity and innovation. My journey began with crafting jewelry in my youth and evolved into the founding of ‘INATA,’ an interior design firm that seamlessly merges architecture and design. My quest for inspiration led me to ‘Applied Arts’ in NIMES, France, where I embraced the harmonious connection between culture and design. As ‘INATA’ thrived, I expanded into ‘Kiero,’ a furniture brand inspired by minimalism and sustainability, born to complement our design ethos. My personal journey is marked by the constant pursuit of pushing boundaries and embracing new challenges.
Tell us about INATA, what was the inspiration for the business and the name? When did it start?
INATA, derived from “innate,” embodies the idea that design should enhance the innate beauty of spaces without overshadowing their inherent architecture. Founded in 2015, INATA is an interior design studio that celebrates the golden ratio, nature, and beauty to breathe life into spaces.
What services do you offer? Do you offer worldwide services or consultancy?
INATA offers comprehensive interior design and furniture design services. Our reach extends worldwide, with successful projects spanning Canada, Chile, the U.S, and Panama.
Tell us about the process of your services?
Our process begins with a thorough analysis of the client’s space and requirements to establish a realistic budget. We then collaborate closely with the client to develop and refine the design, ensuring it aligns with their vision. From design to execution, we bring the envisioned spaces to life.
We know INATA has a sister brand Kiero! Could you tell us about it please?
Kiero is our sister brand, conceived to fulfill INATA’s design needs for furnishing elegant but minimalist designed spaces.
As an interior designer, what do you look at, before investing in a property?
When considering property investments, I focus on elements like the view, architectural distribution, finishing details, open spaces, and how they interact with nature and surroundings.
