Tuckernuck IRL: Ajiri Aki
By Tuckernuck on
Meet Ajiri Aki, founder of Madame de la Maison, a rental company and online boutique for people who want to create tabletops that are both memorable and joyful. According to Ajiri, celebration is “in her DNA.” Originally from Nigeria, Ajiri comes from a family who loves a good party, full of food, music, and good company.
After graduating from the University of Texas Austin, Ajiri worked as a stylist in New York City. She then moved to Paris, married, and started a family. It was there that she realized she lacked a sense of community, which inspired her to create Madame de la Maison, put the spotlight back on her table, and encourage others to do the same.
Through stylish antiques, gorgeous linens and sustainable materials, Ajiri helps you bring your vision to life and create moments and memories that will stay with you forever. Ajiri’s advice to you: “Gather around the table and celebrate life with beautiful things whenever possible. Life is short. Joie de vivre starts today.”
