Tour LRNCE Founder Laurence Leenaert's Bohemian Home In Marrakech

Welcome to The Makers. Each week, we’re celebrating innovators, artisans and crafters of all types, taking you on a private tour of their creative spaces. For this instalment, creative and founder of LRNCE, Laurence Leenaert, welcomes us into her home. 


When it comes to the act of ‘making’, Laurence Leenaert of LRNCE literally can’t stop doing it. Her Marrakech-based lifestyle brand has garnered a devoted, cult-like following across the globe, revered for its truly unique, one-of-a-kind artwork, textiles, and accessories.

For Leenaert, repurposing materials, limiting production, and maintaining a spontaneous creative process are central to LRNCE’s success. Working closely with local artisans in Marrakech, Leenaert designs everything from sandals to ceramics, embroidering and hand-painting each piece with her signature style.


LRNCE’s studio in Marrakech is as inspiring a creative space as it gets— with authentic handcrafted textiles decorating walls and floors as rows of freshly painted vases and vessels dry in the North African sun.


In her home, pops of cobalt blue and rose pink enrich an earthy palette of rich terracotta and desert sand, with bespoke oak furniture and curved cane shelving adding character to a truly authentic abode. With a passion for patterns and eccentric décor, Laurence’s creative space is a true reflection of her creative self.
