About Tula House 

Hello and welcome to Tula House! We are a husband and wife team with a true love for space, experience and the natural world.

We launched Tula House in April of 2016 from a warehouse showroom and the original plant truck, “Tulita”. After numerous pop-ups, fairs, brand partnerships and even a summer transforming shipping containers into an unlikely shop, in November of 2018, we opened Tula House Plants & Gardens in Greenpoint. In winter 2023/2024 we will open Tula House Design & Goods. 

With over twenty years of experience in design and retail, our passion lies in the transformation of spaces and the experience you have with them. This idea translates to the product curation and experience of Tula House retail as well as our design services for your home and commercial spaces. 

Our love for plants and design also transcends to the way we run our business. It informs the artists and makers we work with and the ideas we bring to our gardens. We have always believed that design is For All Living Things. We work hard at maintaining a small yet mighty business, supported by an incredible team of individuals without whom we wouldn’t be able to achieve any of this. Tula House is dedicated to make your space fun and beautiful - in whatever capacity you choose.

Welcome home to Tula House. Our house is your house and we are so happy you are here.
