I design furniture and home accessories under the name Lerieva.
My very first designs and creations were homemade gifts. Throughout the years, the designs became more sophisticated, but the idea has remained the same: special people deserve original and personalized gifts. I am often inspired by family and friends when designing furniture and home accessories. Details are very important to me and they have to be just perfect.
My ambition as a designer is to create beautiful objects that will be used and cherished in everyday life.
