About Us

Our Mission

The premise behind Restoration Oak's Artisan Boutique is the simple, yet profound concept that the true craftsmanship and quality workmanship of artisans around the world should be showcased, shared and appreciated by all. We work tirelessly to find these artisans, many of whom do not have an outlet in the United States and yet deserve to be recognized. It is a privilege to bring the work of these artisans to our customers and we will continue to find unique, one of a kind, home decor to share with you all. We hope you love the work as much as we do.

The Eco Friendly Interior Design Center allows us to showcase green alternatives to flooring, wall coverings, paint, plaster and so much more for your home. We can take your vision and help you refine and perfect it while keeping to a sustainable, green foundation that is safe and healthy, and good for the environment. Our goal is to provide you with the tools you need to create your dream space or home-and we can also help you decorate that dream space with beautiful artisan pieces. Our customers have great style and ideas and we are here to help you realize those visions with an emphasis on green design. Let Nature Be Your Canvas.

Meet Our Team

Omar Rivera - Founder & Partner

Omar Rivera is the Founder of Restoration Oak. His vision and desire to not only create beautiful art, but showcase the art of others, is what led him to pursue his dream of an Artisan Boutique and Eco-Friendly design center. Something of a Renaissance Man before finding his ultimate passion in life, Omar's previous experience (including his contracting business Samix Restoration and Design, Inc) laid a strong foundation for his future vision. Omar’s diverse background allowed him to envision not only an Artisan Boutique that showcases authentic handcrafted goods from around the world, but also an Eco-friendly design center that incorporates natural materials that can be used in home renovation and décor. A life-changing trip to Colombia fueled his desire to create handcrafted furniture and décor items, and his fifteen years of contracting experience and expertise in using reclaimed wood and other natural products allows him to bring those creations to life. During the year that he spent in Colombia, Omar immersed himself in the diverse culture of the native people. He met artisans that put their hearts and souls into crafting items that reflected the natural beauty of Colombia. Their work ethic and craftsmanship were unlike anything he had seen before. This experience lit a fire inside him and inspired his own creativity, as well as his love of nature and the preservation of the environment. Omar developed a passion to create unique pieces made from repurposed wood, leather and any other Eco-friendly resources. His unique perspective on home design and décor, his attention to detail, and his drive for perfection is a product of years of hard work and effort.
