of plantation wood
of an icon
Over the last 20 years Simplemente Madera has grown from a small seedling into a mature tree with many branches. During this time, we have worked hand in hand with many entrepreneurs and visionaries, combining our team’s skills in craftsmanship, product design, architecture, timber, metal manufacturing and upholstery to solve problems and create solutions inspired by nature, heritage, culture and sustainability.
Most of our projects are built using wood from our own group’s FSC plantations, agroforestry systems (AFS) and fallen hardwood trees. Our factory has areas dedicated to high end custom piece production, batch production, as well as a projects area where we prefabricate wooden buildings and larger components and structures.
We are proud our products can be found in multiple iconic hotels and residences in more than 30 countries. We have worked on over 100 different projects that range from five star resorts to small charming coffee shops and OEM product design and production. We would like to invite you to take a look at some of the projects we have completed in recent years and then get in touch with us to talk about how we can participate in turning your ideas and dreams into realities.
Architect Matthew Falkiner
At the heart of Simplemente Madera is the desire to address the needs of our customers by transforming wood into beautiful products. We see ourselves as storytellers, but instead of words we use our materials to create products that capture the essence of our clients. Results could be anything from a unique reception desk to a line of cutting boards, or a prefabricated roof structure to a set of bespoke armchairs. We have the design and technical capacity to work on furniture manufacturing as well as millwork projects, architecture and complete turnkey solutions.
As a regional brand we’ve had the opportunity to work with entrepreneurs and visionaries from different parts of the world, building successful working relationships with hotel owners, purchasing companies, design firms, and hotel management companies. We have executed projects in London, Chelsea, New York, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Dallas, Florida, Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica, France, Switzerland, Norway, Nicaragua, and the Virgin Islands amongst others. With a team of more than 200 people, our company is vertically integrated through plantations, wood processing, product design, architecture, manufacturing and sales.

Integrity, authenticity and responsibility are part of Simplemente Madera’s core values. Our wood is either sourced from our own FSC plantations, agroforestry systems (AFS) with coffee and cocoa production, or from verified sustainable and legal sources. With more than 1500 hectares of our own certified native species plantations, 2,000 hectares of mixed agroforestry systems and more than 5000 hectares of certified teak plantations in the country, we have a guaranteed supply chain of certified wood for years to come.
Our purpose is to promote the use of plantation wood by pioneering innovative, beautiful and functional product design and a positive linkage between customers, designers, farmers and wood workers. We firmly believe that by developing a sustainable and integrated forestry, design and manufacturing model, we will create enough value for plantation farmers, manufacturers, woodworkers, customers and designers that will encourage future investments in the forestry sector of the region. Also, reforestation activities promote the sequestration of CO2 from the atmosphere, thereby decreasing the concentration of it and consequently playing an important role in fighting the intensifying greenhouse effect.
Authenticity, integrity and responsibility.
Story of an island
Karen Emanuel | Founder of Jicaro Island
Whilst on holiday in Nicaragua in January of 2007, she walked into a restaurant and saw a notice proclaiming “Island for Sale”. This rather interested her, partly as a fantasy, partly as she had recognized that Nicaragua was a developing Central American country with a lot to offer.
