Partners in life and work, founders Cristina Ramos and Nu Goteh began mandana blvd. after a career opportunity brought them from Brooklyn, NY to San Francisco, CA. Finding it challenging to furnish a new place with the expenses that come with a booming tech city, they opted for the untraditional approach - rummaging through flea markets, estate sales, and Craigslist.
When they are not searching for the next best vintage item, Cristina works as a freelance Writer/Producer, and Nu works as a Brand Strategist at AKQA San Francisco. They live in Oakland, CA with their plant babies.
At mandana blvd, we believe at the heart of every great home is timeless aesthetic shaped by the dweller's idea of what is essential, what is beautiful, and what brings joy. That is why our namesake shop, mandana, derived from the Persian word for eternal, offers a thoughtful collection of vintage, bohemian, and mid-century pieces that pay homage to the past and embrace modern living. Whether you're on the hunt for kilim rugs, retro lightings, or teak kitchenware, mandana blvd is your source for home goods that will last for years to come.
