Nienke Mulder and Amanda Swart are the design duo behind French Toast Studio. Graduated as illustrators from the Willem de Kooning Academy, they use illustration to form the world of French Toast: a world in which their interests in fashion, interior, art and styling come together.
Meeting at the academy they found out that they share a love for everything crazy patterned, Mick Jagger and color. A lot of color. In their opinion, life is seriously lacking of bright and vibrant colors, so they made it their mission to change this!
The idea of their first collaborative product, ‘Lazy Plant’, was born whilst eating some delicious french toast. That day, not only their first product was born, but also their addiction to this sugary piece of heaven. It became a tradition to do brainstorm sessions over breakfast with coffees and french toast.
Lots of ideas followed, which made them to decide to officially join forces and start their own design studio. And of course, it could not have been any other way: they named it ‘French Toast Studio’.
French Toast Studio aims to create products that bring some extra sparkles to your home. Products, designed with love, that make you happy on a daily basis!
Next to designing their own prints and products, they are very open for collaborations. They worked together with e.g. Hudson’s Bay Netherlands, to produce custom-made Lazy Plants as decoration for their department stores. You can always contact them for request or special demands.
