Combining Luxury With Handmade Craftsmanship, This International Husband-And-Wife Team Prove, For Them, Style Is A Way Of Life
The dynamic duo behind Dorya is the husband-and-wife team of F. Doruk Yorgancioglu, the company’s Chief Executive Officer, and Megan Perry, Designer and Creative Director. The couple’s fresh, sophisticated approach can be seen, not only in their chic products and many showrooms, but, most importantly, in their attitude toward the industry with a philosophy that the pursuit of style is a way of life. “We offer a high-end product that doesn’t simulate quality; it delivers it in every detail,” Yorgancioglu says. “We’re here to remind buyers that superior craftsmanship is alive and well.”

The Dorya brand is firmly rooted in the tradition of some of the finest wood craftsmanship, luxurious materials and attention to detail. Perry travels the globe with her design team in search of the latest and most unique fabrics and accessories, including elaborate veneers, hand-casted hardware and some of the world’s finest textiles. While also incorporating state-of-the-art technology, conventional craftsmanship is still the fundamental feature in the production process, and from the moment the raw wood is cut until the product is finished, the entire process takes place in the company’s production facility, allowing each piece to be a true work of art. Dorya furnishings consist of three collections. The Heritage Collection is a unique line of timeless furnishings composed of mahogany wood and dra-matic veneers, and includes limited edition pieces.
