Tell us about your business.

Caroline Colom Vásquez and José Vásquez-Corbalan have been designing together since the day they met. Both entrepreneurs and dreamers at heart, the pair vowed to someday run a business together, marrying Caroline’s love of ceramics and design with José’s talents in woodworking and fine craftsmanship. The two founded Paloma’s Nest in 2007 as a family-run company offering handcrafted modern heirloom pieces for wedding, baby, home and holiday. Through the power of the internet, Paloma's Nest products have quickly found their way to hands and hearts of collectors around the globe, who cherish the product line for custom-made, personalized gifts and furnishings that will one day be passed on to future generations. It is with this intention of tradition and longevity that every piece Caroline and Jose design and craft for Paloma's Nest will be one of timeless beauty- with the promise to be as beautiful in 100 years as it is today.
