A fusion of modern ideas with a traditional hand crafted finish; Viva La Franki is the culmination of Australian designs developed in association with Mexican artisans.
Having honed their craft in the villages of Mexico and South America for many centuries, the ancient skills of these local artisans have been given a modern twist and transformed into beautiful pieces that can be used for everyday living.
Viva La Franki’s 2014 range has been inspired by the colours of Mexico, and captures what it means to live in Mexico through a colourful array of furniture, skulls, crosses, and glassware. Every single item has been developed with the type of passion that only comes from Latin America, and will bring a certain Viva feeling (the Spanish word for alive) to your decor.
Founded by Ben Lafranchi after a trip to Mexico in 2012, the store has come a long way from its first pop up store in October 2013, now wholesaling to boutiques across Australia and selling online.
