Founded by Carolina Aguerrevere and Pablo Martinez in 2004, Hot Chocolate Design is a fresh and innovative accessories brand that emerged within the Venezuelan market.
We define HCD as a design brand which occasionally blends with art as the concept, design and fabrication of each item we produce is intended to reflect the individuality of each item. Betting on our customer’s need for originality, we offer limited collections and our retired products have become collector’s items.
The inspiration behind HCD comes mainly from our own lifestyle; our passion for collecting vintage items and certain nostalgia for all of the things that made us feel happy and comfortable when we were young. In our design brainstorms, we draw from items, colors, textures and patterns that we treasured in our infancy as well as our yearning to come across them again in our adult lives, transformed as Hot Chocolate Design® unique products.
Hot Chocolate Design® emerges into the Venezuelan market in 2004 as a local fresh and innovative accessories brand, inspired on the consumers’ need for unique and non-mass-produced products. The brand’s designs evoke nostalgia with pieces that reflect individuality, limitless creativity and true passion for sophisticated art and design.
Betting on its consumers’ need for originality and uniqueness, Hot Chocolate Design offers limited collections of products that over the years have become collectables for many of our fans around the world.
Each item is produced with the intention to reflect its own individuality, helping consumers break from the uniformity provided by mass produced brands. Their inspiration comes from their passion for collecting vintage items and the nostalgia that the past brings us.
