Meet the Founders

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 our first retail location in Greenpoint.

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 Tula House plants and products, the experience of Tula House retail, and the indoor/outdoor gardens we design 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 can function harmoniously with the natural world. 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.

The Tula Team

We are a mix of modern horticulturists, designers, and nature enthusiasts, who believe in viewing the wonders of the natural world through a unique lens - comical, playful, artistic and perhaps, a bit wild. 

We promise to source the most healthy, and extraordinary plant species while creatively educating you on how to best care for them at home. Our expert team is available for educational guidance, and repotting services for plants and planters. We are thrilled to help you through your plant journey and look forward to welcoming you to Tula House.
