Named after the Dutch word for "alluring," Lekker is a home furnishings store owned by entrepreneur Natalie van Dijk Carpenter, who worked in the house wares industry in Amsterdam, Paris, and New York before establishing this shop in Boston's South End. In an open, industrial-style space with exposed ceiling pipes, customers browse colorful vignettes that may include red butterfly wall decals, pillows adorned with 3-D sea blooms, and coral-shaped vases atop teak dining tables. Expensive pieces by designers like John Derian are also balanced by more affordable items such as basil lime soap and ceramic coasters.

Insider Tip:

After visiting Lekker, check out the Garage Sale and Red River Trading Company furniture stores, both located within walking distance.
