Tracie, the founder of Interior Culture by Obiageli is a mega insta-babe and does it all. Her instagram is full of posts of her living her absolute best life and honestly, I’m jealous! 🤷🏽♀️ Aside from being one of my interior design idols (I know, I know the list is very long), I also love her style (and bag collection)!
I think if I could choose any firm to work with in Nigeria, I would definitely go with Interior Culture simply because I feel we have the same taste and I’d fit right in. I mentioned their account in my fav instagram accounts post /here/ and I really do love it because they don’t hold back on sharing their projects. Every time I see one of their completed projects, I feel super motivated and inspired!
One cool thing is that the firm is mostly run by women and they’re obviously killing it! #girlpower 👊🏽
Another thing is 75% of their furniture pieces are made in Nigeria. I think it’s great because a lot of interior design clients (that can afford to) tend to go for foreign made pieces due to perceived better quality but firms like Interior Culture are pushing the envelope and showing that ‘Made in Nigeria’ can also be just as good. Check out some of my favourite pieces locally produced by IC.
They also have an in house metal artist. How snazzy.
There’s this finesse and creativity in their work that I believe sets them apart. I love the modern touch that their designs always have and how they steer away from simply following design trends in Nigeria.
And true TIS fashion, here’s a slideshow of their recent projects and you can find more on their website!
