The Cunhas Warehouses are housed in a magnificent Art Deco style building by the architect Manuel Marques (1890-1956) and his associates Amoroso Lopes and Coelho Freitas. They combined three 19th century buildings on a single Art Deco façade. It is easily recognized by the open feathered peacock on the facade of the building. Centennial warehouses in downtown Porto specialize in household items such as bedspreads, tablecloths, bed and bath sets, blankets, men’s and women’s interiors and also a large assortment of white gowns, maid robes and school gowns . The furniture is original making the visit to this shop an extraordinary trip to the past.
Created in 1898 and founded as Cunhas & C.ª Lda in December 1917 by its founder José de Almeida Cunha. It remains in the same family that preserves the history and past of this century-old warehouse. It stands out the participation in the Colonial Exhibition in the Palace of Crystal in 1934. They are a reference in this area of business.
