You Need These Dining Companions For Your Next Meal

Posted on

If you have been keeping up with us on Instagram, you know we take our cooking and baking quite seriously around here. Blame it on a mild obsession with Great British Bakeoff (we’re holding a Great Lekker Bakeoff exclusively on IG stories that starts next week, cough cough) or so we have an excuse to swap out our kitchenware for

An Abandoned 1920s Warehouse Gets A Moody Penthouse Makeover

Posted on

In honor of Halloween week we have been eating up dark interiors and industrial architecture, basically obsessing over anywhere a design-forward ghost could haunt until the end of time. Thanks to this Dezeen article we stumbled upon a project that we knew you’d all love for more than just its eerie history. The downtown Portland building where the project is

The chill is here, folks! Some welcome the briskness by layering with their favorite camel coats but here at Lekker we’re welcoming the fresh air by bringing out the trusty fireside companions.

Our Grand Opening Party was the finish line in the home-stretch in what has been one of the most hectic years of Lekker to date.

Listen, adding Ferm Living to our lineup when we moved was potentially one of the most exciting things for us internally (we’re talking everyone in unison combing through the catalog, shrieks and all). Ferm has the ability to capture trends authentically, master color palettes that actually feel like they could make our moody art-house dreams come true, and take design

The Fruits of their Labor: American Artisans at Work

It’s only fitting that for Labor Day Weekend we share with you a few of our brands that are powered by artisans who go above and beyond what it takes to make pieces that are artfully minded, ethically crafted, and carry the stories of the people who made them. It’s no surprise that they’re also some of our favorites, the

Before and After: Our New Showroom Transformation
