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.

Product Spotlight: The Little Petra Lounge Chair

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!

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 Ultimate Mom: Florence Knoll The Design Pioneer

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!

Today we get to learn more about the woman behind the blog. If you’ve been keeping up with The Lekker Creative, you’re already familiar with the even and thoughtful tone of this blog’s (usual) author.

Team Lekker Shares Our Favorite Sofas (Custom Edition)

Posted on

Personifying furniture is just something that happens at Lekker. We’re surrounded by larger than life pieces all day every day and naturally start identifying with certain chairs and sofas like they were personality characteristics we were born with. This has led to many complicated and hilarious conversations about who would be what, and why. Since we all treat design as very

After waiting 9 hours on Monday for a flight to be canceled into the wee hours of the North Carolina morning, our buying team concluded their Highpoint Market adventure with some not so great travel luck.
