A Place for Material Experimentation: Popham's Riad in Marrakech

In their December issue, Elle Deco invited us to visit the riad of Caitlin and Samuel, founders of Popham Design. Once again, the couple showed us how their own residences have always been their best creative laboratories.

Seven years ago, when they rented out their riad and moved to Gueliz, Marrakech’s “new town,” after having a child, they lived in two different bungalows (one of which appeared in the September 2015 issue of ELLE DECOR).

In each house, they experimented. Last year, they decided to reinvent every room of their 18th-century, three-bedroom medina home (whose previous iteration ED featured in April 2008), using it as a showplace for all of the design projects.

“We realised our old house could be the ultimate playground for our new collections. We never do something officially until we play with the idea in our own home.”
