Interior Design Studio Creates “Memorable Livable Environments”
Averylily, which also sells bed and bath products, is one of the 11 companies in Mana Up’s eighth cohort
Avery Solmssen and Lily Kanter met when Solmssen designed a house Kanter purchased on Hawai‘i Island during the pandemic.
With complementary backgrounds – Kanter’s as a co-founder of retail companies including Serena & Lily and her philanthropic work, and Solmssen’s 22 years in interior design – they ended up co-founding Averylily Design Studio in August 2022.
Based in Honolulu with their colleagues Kristin Meehan and Kateryna Sandborn, the studio provides full-service interior design for both renovations and new construction.
But they also sell a collection of move-in basics: sheets, bedding and bath products, and tabletop accessories with “a focus on local makers and global women artisans,” says Solmssen.
As stated on the company’s website: “The Averylily team designs spaces that are built on a personal connection and thoughtful collaboration with their clients, taking cues from all different sources to create memorable livable environments.”
