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,
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.

Just this week we got to witness a vintage Egg Chair and vintage upholstered Series 7 grace our showroom floor for our Boston Design Week event, Then & Now (head to our FB for some of our favorite shots) so we couldn’t be more excited to see some more Fritz Hansen artistry with the opening of their new showroom in
