In the bustling streets of many cities, the term ‘Bodega’ resonates with familiarity. Beyond just a corner store, a Bodega is a cornerstone of the community, a symbol of trust, dependability, and a place that offers everything one needs, just around the block. In 2019, drawing from this ethos, Ana and Dimce Manev launched ‘Bodega Tile’. With 15 years of expertise in the tile industry, their vision was not just about trade; it was about building a trusted space for design aficionados.

As our range expanded, so did our identity. From Tiles to a spectacular ensemble of home essentials, our 13,000 sqft showroom became a design haven. With Lighting, Kitchen Cabinets, an indoor Countertop Slab Yard, Bathroom Vanities, Sinks, Flooring, Wallpaper, and the intricate Pulls and Knobs, our evolution was inevitable. We transformed from ‘Bodega Tile’ to ‘Bodega Style’, encapsulating the essence of a place where every home design need is met under one expansive roof.

Imagine a realm where your design dreams are given a palette, our seasoned designers guide your choices, and your home emerges as a masterpiece. Bodega Style isn’t just a showroom; it’s where imagination and reality converge. We invite you to join our community, where every space is a canvas and every design a story waiting to be told. Dive in, and let’s craft those stories together!

Our Team

Dimce Manev –Pioneering Design and Experiences

Founder and Visionary

Dimce Manev, the founder of Bodega Style, is not just a business owner; he’s a visionary thinker with a passion for redefining the design world. His journey to starting Bodega Style is a testament to his unrelenting drive and creative spirit.

Dimce’s story is one of transformation. He started with a vision for a tile store but soon realized that Bodega Style could be so much more than that. It could become a one-stop design destination where creativity knows no bounds. This vision fueled his determination to expand beyond the store’s initial offerings, leading to the creation of Bodega Style.

His journey into the design world began with childhood memories of using dominos to build and design spaces. It was a glimpse into a future where he would design homes for others, regardless of their budget. As a tile specialist, Dimce honed his expertise, but his true passion lay in crafting experiences that most end up calling home.

At Bodega Style, Dimce believes in the power of unity. Every team member is an integral part of the company’s growth, and client feedback is not just welcomed but cherished as an opportunity for positive change.

What sets Bodega Style apart are the values it upholds. Dimce and his partner Ana proudly endorse thoughtfully curated selections that embody future design directions, rather than fleeting trends. Quality is non-negotiable, and integrity towards clients is unwavering.

Dimce’s career has been shaped by pivotal moments, like the choice to turn down a business opportunity that wasn’t aligned with his passion. If he had said yes, Bodega Style, as we know it today, might never have existed.

Looking ahead, Dimce envisions Bodega Style evolving by maintaining a focus on remarkable client engagement. The presence of in-house expert designers specializing in each department ensures that clients receive the best guidance and valuable insights for their projects. This commitment to excellence is at the heart of Bodega Style’s growth.
