Annika Schmidt's Profile
Hi there! My name is Annika. My background is in furniture design and textiles, with a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, and some time spent studying art and design at Ölands Folkhögskola on an island off the South East coast of Sweden. I began Lilleputt Studio in late 2011, when I left Brooklyn, NY with my fiance and, on a whim, made a new life in Portland, Maine. I am passionate about recognizing the joy and ritual of daily habits and routines, by creating unique items to recognize these small moments. Drawing a lot of inspiration from my Swedish background, I seek to create simple, thoughtful designs, incorporating bold pattern and color.
Swedish for 'peewee', Lilleputt (pronounced roughly “lill-le-poot”) was named for the small size of my studio, as well as the size of some of its intended customers.
