Lekker is Dutch for "alluring, enticing and tempting" and aptly describes the inspiration behind our portfolio of furniture, lighting, tabletop and accessories for the edited home. Shop online or visit our showroom in Boston's South End.
We believe it is important to furnish a home with items that are direct reflections of the people who live there. Lekker provides an environment that creates a symbiotic relationship between our unique portfolio and your inspiration. Lekker is a place to absorb new ideas, expand one's creativity, explore new products and transport them to your lekker home.
Natalie van Dijk is a Dutch native who grew up in a fashion design family. After studying textile engineering at De Maere University in Enschede, Holland she went on to work in home design for Ralph Lauren in Amsterdam, Paris and New York. Natalie met Curt Carpenter who shared her affinity for design and had mutual entrepreneurial aspirations. They saw an opportunity to literally marry their skill sets and in 2003 launched Lekker Home in Boston. A lifestyle store that takes inspiration from the streets of Amsterdam, where old and new effortlessly merge with industrial and organic materials for a warm modernist design aesthetic. Providing an alternative to the homogenized design pallet of corporate box stores, Lekker Home offers a “design for living” concept that is an edited portfolio of mid-century modern classics, independent and exclusive design brands.
