UT E S W N I I T M H 5 . The brothers be­hind fam­i­ly­owned Lo­tus Arts de Vivre de­scribe “smart beauty”. IN­TEL­LEC­TUAL DE­SIGN IS . . . Sri: A mix­ture of cul­tures, raw ma­te­ri­als, na­ture, and an­i­mals, brought to­gether for vis­ual em­pha­sis. Nicki: Mytho­log­i­cal yet ed­uca­tive, as ex­em­pli­fied by the in­tri­cate aes­thet­ics of our dé­cors and jew­ellery de­signs. NA­TURE, RE­DIS­COV­ERED S: A lot of peo­ple in the ci­ties, chief among them chil­dren, have never touched an an­i­mal. N: We like to bring the wildlife el­e­ments into homes with our an­i­mal­is­tic de­signs. For ex­am­ple, our new leather ele­phant stool. GREEN IS THE NEW BLACK S: Clients these days are more en­vi­ron­men­tally aware and savvy. N: For our home dé­cors, we use raw ma­te­ri­als that would nor­mally be thrown away. We turn them into ab­stract ma­te­ri­als that we would later in­cor­po­rate in our de­signs. ONE WORD TO DE­SCRIBE THE BRAND N: Niche. Wow— be­cause we wow peo­ple with our unique de­signs.
