About Lula

After two years of a fulfilling living experience with my family in Malaysia, and only a few days left before moving back to Houston, I required an urgent and critical surgery. Thankfully, it wasn't serious, after hearing the great news as my husband, Jose and I drove back home we saw a store selling handmade wood tables and had to stop. Since then we fell in love with design-crafted interiors and decided to pursue our dream. Since 2015 we have been able to build a community (dream team) of what we consider the best design crafters from around the globe. 

My name is Lula, I studied art and Interior design in Cuba and after two unsuccessful attempts in escaping by boat from my homeland, I was finally able to fly away to Venezuela and become a free person. ARKA Living is the result of my unforgettable experiences in Cuba, the openness of all of the countries I have been lucky enough to appreciate their culture, lifetime friends, best business partners, the best customers in the world, and the love and support of my family.
