Who is sAmAnA ?

SAMANA is a unique provider of Bohemian, artistic, eclectic home furnishings. Samana features one-of-a-kind furnishings, decorative accessories, and gifts discovered from around the world as well as designed and enhanced by SAMANA artists.   Our private retail wherehouse is located in Aptos, CA.

The inspiration for the name, SAMANA, came from an ancient Hindu philosophy that was practiced by wandering monks who emphasized individualized, "unconventional" forms and traditions on the path toward enlightenment.   So now, SAMANA and its colleagues do so too, wander the world only to return with eclectic, untraditional inspirations and treasures that may brighten and bring to life your home, work, or favorite spaces.

SANDY MARTINEZ - Sandy was born in Argentina, the end of the world in her opinion. She grew up with the travel bug and it was only a matter of time before she started exploring the rest of Latin America. With a knack to adapt easily to other cultures, she expanded her horizons, pursuing adventures in other parts of the world. Purchasing beautiful things and “buying without guilt,” as she puts it, came as a natural consequence. SAMANA was born of a much-loved hobbie and ironically, the name she chose, "SAMANA," translates as unconventional, a word that mirrors her own “unconventional” life.
