was our Design Evening headliner back in November. We are huge fans of hers over here at Apartment Therapy and even had her art hanging in our office
for a while, so we were so glad to finally get to meet her. Click above for a few of her hit designs and below for her video and bio. Click here for upcoming Design Evening details
Company: Lulu DK
Hometown: Los Angeles
About: "Lulu deKwiatkowski was born and raised in New York City, spending her childhood between the electric streets of Manhattan and the colorful and sun-drenched beaches of the Hamptons and Bahamas. Studying abroad during her high school years, she returned to New York, graduating from Parsons School of Design with a Fine Arts and Interior Design degree.
After graduation, Lulu found a home and muse in Paris. She lived amongst its beauty and culture for five years, studying trompe l’oeil. In 1998, Lulu happened upon a fabric mill outside of Paris, and inspiration struck. “Mesmerized, I worked feverishly to transform my previous trompe l’oeil wall paintings into fabric fantasies. A few months later, my textile company LULU DK was born.” Since its inception, Lulu has expanded her brand to include wall coverings and has also collaborated with the luxury bed linens firm Matouk, fabric house Schumacher on the LULU DK Child collection, Elson & Co. carpets, and Elite Leather to bring her inspired, wholly original style to their product lines."
