OUR PHILOSOPHY OF JOY It’s often the little things in life that bring the most happiness : an unexpected bunch of flowers, a compliment from an old friend, a beautiful scrap of fabric found at the bottom of a drawer…What makes you happy is as individual to you as your fingerprint. We believe that your home should bring you happiness and you should feel free to create the home that inspires you, motivates you and reflects you. It’s not about fashions or trends, but creating a space in which you can feel pure joy.
