‘Like most people, I went to the big home furnishing stores and bought all the basics, from a bed and sofa to a dining table. But this furniture said nothing about me or my family. From that point onward I made it my mission to create a personalized home that I would feel comfortable in and be proud of.’
Oversized glass vases in amber, smoke and mocca. Made in India.
‘My husband and I have always enjoyed travelling and take every opportunity to do so that we can. Every time I returned from a location I brought something back with me: wooden bowls from Bangkok, blankets from Turkey, bronze trays from Dubai.’
Oak and metal side tables. Machine-sliced 2mm wooden top, black resin finish. Made in Belgium.
‘Traveling the world to pick up custom pieces is not a cheap nor easy task. But I wanted to give people a more affordable way to fill their homes with items from around the globe, with all the convenience of shopping online.’
100% wool hand-spun Kilim. Made in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
‘Some of the pieces in our curated selection are antiques, many of them are unique, and all of them are beautiful. We hope that you enjoy exploring as much as we have enjoyed creating it.’
Stainless steel serving tray, handmade in India.
