MEET THE DESIGNER:
Eva Sonaike is shaking up the world of textiles with bold colors, designs, and African-inspired prints, driven by a mission “To Bring Color to Life”. Nigerian but born in Germany, Sonaike’s London-based brand produces unique textiles, home decor and accessories including pillows, that are a collision of West African flair and modern home decor.
BUILDING A BRAND
Pivoting from a career in journalism, and armed with an MA in fashion and textiles, Sonaike founded her self-titled lifestyle brand during her maternity leave after she re-decorated her apartment, creating her own couch cushions. She quickly discovered her knack for interior design and redesigned a few cushions which she then produced through a local manufacturer.
Soon after launch, she garnered tremendous interest in her designs. Within a year her line was carried in some of London’s top department stores, including Selfridges, Liberty, and Fenwick of Bond.
LUXURY BY DESIGN
The now 8 year-old brand continues to be an innovative melange of luxury and a contemporary African-inspired aesthetic. Sonaike’s collection adds an element of opulence and vibrance to any space with its intricate design and innovative color choices.
