Moroccan interiors shop, LRNCE handmakes almost all of its unique creations and take inspiration from the North African Peninsula.
When is the last time you walked into a shop and thought, “Oh my god, I want EVERYTHING!”? FYI, restaurant menus don’t count.
It’s been ages, right? We first came across this North African shop when they showed at Maison et Objet in January 2019 and ever since we’ve wandered through their online shop, we have craved every. single. piece.
Begun by Belgian Laurence Leenaert in 2015. While on holiday in Morocco she was so inspired by the patterns, colours and craftsmanship of the region that she decided to make the move permanent. Soon, she established LRNCE, opening a studio in Marrakech and an online fashion and interiors shop that sources all of its production in North Africa, capturing the creativity of the region. A combination of fashion, home accessories and tableware. LRNCE’s palette is like late summer in a shop – warm terracottas and royal blues, lots of Cubist shapes and line drawings and chunky ceramics.
Take a look for yourself…
