What’s New at Our New Showroom!

Posted on

Besides the obvious new showroom location and combining our offices to all be under one roof, there’s a lot of newness happening around us at 38 Wareham St. The magic that the team has built out of 10,000 sq ft is a sight to be seen, the many months of tinkering with the floor-plan to get everything exactly right paid

Product Spotlight: BK 11 Lounge Chair

Posted on

This is a continuation of the product spotlight series in which one member of the team covers a design of their choosing! We hope to break down design in a way that is digestible and focused and tell the story of just how your favorite lounge chair or table made its way from a designers sketch to our showroom. And

Essentials for an Intimate Outdoor Tablescape

Posted on

Let’s face the facts, the most exciting things in life revolve around eating. So when the warm weather hits we’re ready to run outside with all of our favorite tableware and get our charcuterie on, probably with an insane shopping-spree to pick up far too many marcona almonds and cheese from Formaggio. But when we start dreaming about these feasts, we’re

The Family Traditions of Ercol Furniture

Posted on

This Father’s Day weekend in honor of all the dads who’ve encouraged us to explore our passions, we’re honoring a long legacy of fathers, sons, and daughters collaborating creatively – the Ercolani way. We’ve written about the father of Ercol Furniture, Lucian Ercolani and his Originals Collection, and how his reinvention of the Windsor chair set a new standard for

The Abstract World of Jaime Hayon

Posted on

On the cover of the Financial Times’ often serious How to Spend It magazine, Jaime Hayon is dressed like a clown. His make-up and black and white triangle pom-pom hat are reminiscent of Pierrot. “Designers take themselves too seriously,” he insists. The image matches his work – Jaime’s designs often ask us to leave normalcy behind as we enter a

Our Favorite Moments from NYCxDesign Week

Posted on

NYCxDesign week is the epitome of everything the design community does well – larger than life trade shows like ICFF, expertly curated exhibits that toe the line of modern art and design, showrooms styled to the nines for all passersby and lots of Aperol Spritz. Everybody on the team went into last week with different intentions, assignments, and goals, but

Product Spotlight: The Little Petra Lounge Chair

Posted on

In an effort to share all the knowledge housed in the brilliant brains of everyone on the team, we’re starting a monthly product feature where one lucky Lekker team member will do a write-up on something new, something old, something silver … you get the idea! We hope to break down design in a way that is digestible and focused,

New Space, New Tradition, Same Community

Posted on

When we first started Lekker in 2003, we were one of the first family-run businesses a part of the Washington St revitalization – Natalie and Curt packing boxes at midnight and teaching themselves how to run a business from the ground up. The passion and constant drive to make Lekker a reality all stemmed from the simple desire to bring modern design to the U.S. in a warm and accessible way.

The Ultimate Mom: Florence Knoll The Design Pioneer

Posted on

We’ve touched on Florence Knoll’s legacy before and we thought there was no better mom to highlight this Mother’s Day weekend – there’s just so much to reflect on! Her endless contributions to women in the workplace, modern product design, and scope of the interior design industry have changed the game for all of us. Navigating the male dominated Post-War
