Gabe Tavarez founded Alamo Design Co after spending years apprenticing in and later managing a local shop, relentlessly pursuing his craft. Drawing inspiration from midcentury design, Gabe incorporates iconic elements into much of his work, but draws satisfaction from creating pieces clients love, regardless of the style.
He enjoys problem solving, welcoming design challenges that allow him to step outside of his comfort zone and implement creative strategies. You’ll never find him cutting corners as every effort is guided by the philosophy that ‘good enough’ never is.
When he’s not busy in his Tampa, FL shop, Gabe can be found wrasslin’ with his two rugrats and annoying his wife.
