My visit to the Kif Kef home.

My visit to the Kif Kef home.

Discover my -part 1- of my visit to the Kif Kef home. Sumeyye Ata, the girlboss behind Kif Kef is one of the most creative women I know in the interior business. 5 years ago she started with her own webshop Kif Kef, famous for it’s ‘bars chairs’. At that time she lived in Mortsel (Antwerp) with her husband and little boy. The two of them renovated their little home and sold it. Their first home was already a huge Pinterest hit so the signs pointed to a bigger succes when they decided to buy a new -much bigger- home in Antwerp. They renovated & seperated the house in 4 levels. Level 0 = The Kif Kef Studio Level 1 = The home Level 2 = The Kif Kef Appartement (Airbnb/ rental accommodation) Level 3 = The Kif Kef Loft (Also rental place) The renovation has been huge and most impressive part is they did most of it themselves.

It’s an exposition of upcoming talented creatives (-furniture, illustration, fashion, interior, jewellery…-designers) who are ready to conquer the world, or let’s say Belgium to begin with.
We saw some really nice designs and met some interesting people.

Almost 2,5 years ago we had the idea of designing and producing a furniture-line ourselves. At the same time a mutual friend introduced us to Ruben Deriemaeker, a very talented furniture designer, creator & maker.

After multiple brainstorms & meetings and after a lot of trial & errors… (not with Ruben!) We were very proud to see our very first object (the #Bam_nat coffeetable) at the venue! 
(// if you want to know more!)

Afterwards we hit the road to start our roadtrip-holiday to Copenhagen! First stop; Hamburg!
During our drive, we listened to the ‘Lost in the dream’ War on Drugs album and while the sun set and our daughter made ‘merry cooing’ sounds I realised how happy i am with my life.

I posted a picture on Facebook and somebody replied 'At moments like these you realise that the little things matter in life’… And in the blink of an eye I thought, little things? Little things? These are the biggest things I can imagin!

Much bigger then I ever could have imagined. ️
