In the ’90s, prolific Belgian designer Laetitia Low launched Marie’s Corner, specializing in stylish handmade seating for an exclusive clientele. Since then, her business has expanded into a full range of upholstered furniture and textiles, and she often collaborates on large-scale decorating projects with the world’s leading interior talents. But no matter how grand those jobs become, Marie’s Corner remains true to its roots as a purveyor of streamlined modern classics, all rendered from top-quality woods, durable leathers, and elegant fabrics.

After all, a woman should feel at ease in a bachelor's pad, too.
