About Lalaya Design

Lalaya Design is a company based in Toronto, Canada that is specialized in handmade home furniture. It was founded in 2017 by Hanae Baruchel.

Concrete and steel - the main materials we work with - can seem at once lighter and heavier than they initially appear. At LALAYA Design we play with the surprising malleability and versatility of these materials.

Out of seeming dullness emerges uniqueness & beauty.

LALAYA’s products have been sold in Canada, the U.S., the Netherlands and India. We have exhibited at Toronto's Interior Design Show and our work has been featured in FASHION Magazine, AZURE Magazine and Designlines Magazine

About our name

In Brazil, la-la-ya (pronounced ‘lah-lah-yah’) is a common musical phrase. The word has no specific meaning. It is simply what singing sounds like. Our company finds inspiration in this musicality; in lightness, harmony and playfulness. Each object has an onomatopoeic name to bring these attributes out.
