about atelierBOEMIA

 atelier BOEMIA

was first conceived in the spring of 2014 by two interior designers and great friends with a passion for travel.

séverine is Swiss and grew up between Zurich and Geneva, speaking French and (Swiss-) German at home. Extensive travels (and perhaps a tiny knack for language) made her fluent in English, Italian as well as Spanish.  Completing a degree in interior design in Lausanne, Switzerland in 2006, she worked for several years as a freelance designer until she met her partner in crime (and business) in 2010...

stacie is American and has lived in Switzerland since 2005 when her CFnO brought her back to his home country as a souvenir.  Stacie grew up in an entrepreneurial household and owes most of her fabulousness to her super creative mom who puts Martha Stewart to shame and her business savvy father (who can also turn quite a colorful phrase as any good Texan can).  After studying Economics and International Business, she worked in the family design build firm until going out on her own as an interior designer in 2003.

 

 

 

 

 

 OUR CREDO

- we believe things should and can be handmade, stylish and philanthropic

- we believe in collecting experiences and memories, not just stuff

- we believe in karma

- we believe there is nothing cooler than a well curated home

We have cooked up our philosophy in business and in enjoying life with two key ingredients: 1.)  enriching experiences  and 2.) good karma.

We love to share good food and good times in a simple and chic environment with family and the family we choose: our friends.

We feel strongly that things do not have to be expensive to be fantastic and inspiring!

We like products with integrity. The unique objects that are made by generation after generation of people in the countries from which we source product are just that.

We want to  honor and protect their legacy of craftsmanship.  

We want to create beautiful things while helping developing economies earn a living for their families.

We appreciate the best quality at a good price because we had the sense to find it.

Because we believe everyone has the right to choose for themselves, earn for themselves and be well educated, we donate a portion of our profits back to local programs helping people move forward.

We are passionate about travel. Our travels take us to meet fab new people every day that blow our minds with their kindness, dispelling stereo types, making us smile and humbling us with their generosity of time, spirit and directions when we get a little lost!

We hope the things we bring to you make you smile, knowing that you are paying it forward with us! have cooked up our philosophy in business and in life with two key ingredients: Enjoying life through enriching experiences and good karma.

Our lifestyle means we don’t like fake stuff. We like products with integrity, and the unique and beautiful objects that are made by generation after generation of people in the countries from which we source product are just that. We want to help honor and protect their legacy of craftsmanship and help them earn a living for their families while bringing you something special. This is why we don’t buy the cheapest things we can find (also because we are fairly persnickety!) we are just like you: we want quality at a fair price.

Because we believe everyone has the right to choose for themselves, earn for themselves and be well educated, we donate a portion of our profits back to local programs funding education, work programs and infrastructure improvements in every market from which we source products.



We are passionate about travel and seeing new things. Our travels take us to meet fab new people every day that blow our minds with their kindness, dispelling stereo types, making us smile and humbling us with their generosity of time, spirit and directions when we get a little lost.

We are eternal optimists and genuinely believe it should be possible for everyone who follows our mantra to also live a fun filled existence.

We hope the things we bring to you make you smile, knowing that you are paying it forward with us!
