Q&A with Newport Cottages’ founder Pockets Alvarez

Layla Grayce: What is your name, title, and how long have you been with Newport Cottages?
Pockets Alvarez: 
I’m Pockets Alvarez, the Founder and CEO of Newport Cottages. My wife and I founded the company in 1999. We’re now in our 15th year and still love what we do

LG: When and why did you decide to showcase your brand on Layla Grayce?
PA: We met Layla Grayce co-founders Wendy and Tiffany when they first launched Layla Grayce 10 years ago. We were so impressed by their big dreams and their energetic entrepreneurial spirit. From the beginning, we noticed that Layla Grayce was focused on quality products and striving for top-notch customer service. It was definitely something we wanted to be a part of.

LG: How has your brand and its style/offerings changed over the years?
PA: Newport Cottages was created from a desire to offer artisan crafted, USA-made furniture. Our first collections were designed with a very traditional, coastal cottage feel: hand-turned posts, inlaid panels, and bead-board designs. Over the years, our collections have evolved to include some transitional and contemporary designs. However, we remain true to the founding principles of quality hardwood construction and continue to manufacture right here in Southern California.

LG:  Where do you see your brand 10 years from now?
PA: 
I see Newport Cottages expanding into other rooms of the home, beyond providing great furniture for nurseries and children’s rooms. We would also include accent pieces, occasional tables, and other furnishings made with the same handcrafted, USA-made quality for which we are known. Our pieces are currently distributed throughout the USA and in select countries abroad. I would love to be able to offer our furniture to more countries around the world.

LG: What is your favorite memory working with Layla Grayce over the past 10 years?
PA: We have so many great memories with Layla Grayce, but perhaps what stands out the most is the time we first met and comparing that time to where we all are now. We have seen our families grow with the addition of babies. We’ve shared stories of our children, while at the same time finding the energy and strength to grow our businesses together. The past 10 years have been my favorite memory so far, and I look forward to another 10.

Expressions of Color: Dusty Blue


Toned down but still with enough impact to carry a room, dusty blue has a delicate vintage quality when paired with chocolate and cream accents. Perfect for boy bedrooms, it also serves as an ideal color to ground interiors when used in rugs and bedding. Shop all dusty blue products here.

French Style – c’est magnifique!


While France commemorates her freedom on Bastille Day, we celebrate the creme de la creme of centuries old design still influencing the furniture made today. With elements that make us say “ooh la la”, we rediscover our favorite elements that add a touch of glamorous French style to today’s decor.
