Last month, my friend was thinking about changing the design of her living room, so we were navigating through the internet trying to find something that was matching her wants and imagination. She was picturing a living room full of colors. Both of us were not really satisfied with results we found, until we crossed Eva Sonaike’s website, we both fell in Love with her style that was totally different as she gives the colors a great value with an African touch.
Eva Sonaike is a Nigerian of origin, interior designer, born and raised in Germany and based in London, which gives her an international mixture. Her aim as a designer is to bring the African touch to the international interior industry.
She graduated from London College of Fashion with a Master degree in Fashion. It all started during her maternity leave when she decided to redecorate her apartment, so she made cushions with African wax fabrics. Loving what she made, she decided to make a small quantity with a local manufacturer, many stores loved them, which pushed her to quit her job and run Eva Sonaike on a full time basis following her passion.
Today, Eva Sonaike expanded to make not only cushions but also, Fabrics, Pouffes, Trays, Make Up bags, Lampshades and rugs.
She is known for her courage of combining colors most people won’t.
Combining both the African art with leathers and velvets, she is fulfilling the Eva Sonaike mission, which states “Bringing colors to life”
