In 2021, while working from home, I had a lot of time to reflect on things that I enjoyed doing when I was younger. I remembered art class and going to a ceramic studio on the weekends. Those memories and the feeling of joy lead me to create By Odiri, a functional, eye-catching home decor, and homeware small business.

I consider myself to be a functional person, I like things to be versatile and can be used in a variety of ways. It is great to have a decor piece that is eye-catching, and fun, but wouldn't it be better if it can evolve over time? The icing on the cake, which I find to be special about my business, is thinking of the life of the decor. People change, and their needs change, so how can my decor pieces change with them. This is why functionality is an important piece of the brand. A pencil pot can change over time to a plant pot, a candle holder, a vase, and then a utensil holder.

It has been over a year since I started By Odiri, and I have loved watching it grow and loved the community that has been built around it. I look forward to our lifelong journey and I hope you come along.
