In 2016, A. Sanoma celebrates 40 years of being owned and family operated for 3 Generations!
Our roots were planted in a 40,000 square foot warehouse and office in Long Island City, New York. Patriarch, Kul Conti, along with his father “A”, created an furnishings importing empire 4 decades ago.
Kul founded a company based on his two passions: 1) traveling the world & 2) discovering unique home accessories. He wanted to bring both together to help make his customer’s houses into a home sweet home.
It doesn’t hurt that his wife Sonya had her finger on the pulse of design for over 40 years. Not only is she the face behind the success of A. Sanoma, but Sonya has also produced numerous incredibly successful partnerships with exclusive designers. Because of her talents, A.Sanoma products are featured worldwide in celebrity homes, museums, and even the U.S. White House!
At about the same time, namesake first born daughter Sanoma (Duke MBA) arrived. 17 years later she accompanied Kul to Europe on a buying trip. Needless to say, Sanoma was fascinated. Not only did she relish in the culture of foreign soil, her fresh keen eye brought exciting new ideas and products to the table. Today, we offer thousands of unique products and items!
Second daughter, Twinkle (Cornell ‘2014) keeps the company in line with her sharp organizational skill and has traveled with Kul & Sonya on a number of exotic buying trips as well. Her keen sense for design and innate artistic nature help expand our collection even further.
Together, we understand the importance of home, creature comforts, and things that made us feel safe that don’t have to cost a fortune. The security of light from a beautiful glass pendant lighting while curling up in a chair hugging your favorite magnifying glass can provide comfort and well-being. We want to deliver the highest quality, handcrafted and custom made products for our consumers.
Our family’s mission at A.Sanoma Home is directly correlated to your happiness. We hope that accessories we find exciting and amazing from around the world, inspire you and your clients to decorate your home sweet home!!!
So come decorate your home sweet home!! We at A.Sanoma live by that motto!
