Who Are We?

Venoor creates high-quality, design-focused sustainable furniture with minimal cost to our environment. Helping communities in need survive and thrive through improving their local environment and providing livelihood opportunities.


Our Story

We began in the village of Venur, the ancestral home of our founder Wesley Pereira, situated in southern India. On childhood visits to his Grandfather’s farms, Wesley would help with the chores, watching, learning and getting his hands dirty. He saw the respect his Grandfather had for the earth, this love of nature has stayed with Wesley ever since, and forms the heart of Vênoor Living.


Sadly many rural areas of India and several parts of the world have suffered terrible deforestation, the impact on the people and environment is devastating. Witnessing this first-hand gave Wesley the seed of an idea: To create well-designed sustainable furniture with minimal cost to our environment, whilst helping communities in need survive and thrive through improving their local environment and providing livelihood opportunities.


Our Impact

So, for every order received, one tree is planted in our regeneration project in rural India. Our initiative also provides farming best practice education and sustainable income opportunities to these local farmers. You can read more about our replanting project here.


On our journey so far, we have been hugely privileged to work with amazing craftsmen and women, learning from their knowledge that has been passed down from generation to generation. Some born in the very rural communities we support. Providing employment and income to these communities helps alleviate some of the impacts of the environmental issues.
