Ria and Yiouri of R&Y Augousti were born, respectively, in the Philippines and Cyprus. They met in London, and now live in Paris. Their chic home and fashion accessories evince the duo’s global backgrounds and interest in multiple facets of design. Featuring a classic French flavor, their luxury goods range from simple trays to ornate shagreen boxes covered in feathers and inlaid shells and python clutch bags. Add into the mix the designers’ other ventures — wallets and small leather goods, handbags, furniture, jewelry — and their fans can take R&Y Augousti’s signature exoticism with them wherever they go.
Marie Antionette herself would envy this luxurious selection of fine home accoutrements. And we have them for you.

Then dine amid the scent of Seda France’s Belgian Marigold candle. Afterward, bed down on Coleur Nature’s gorgeously printed botanical sheets that have the lush look of the French countryside.
