Lille Huset? To me, it is a philosophy, it's about living small,
elegant simplicity, and finding meaning in the everyday. It is a project I started in 2009, to design & create goods that 
each tell a story.

The Lille Huset philosophy came from my home in Chicago. Having returned to my roots after a generation away, I discovered that my Norwegian great grandparents were married in a house not far from where I was living in the traditionally Norwegian neighborhood of Logan Square. It was in this little neighborhood that we bought and renovated our first "lille huset." My company and story was born from there.

My fabrics and designs are influenced by my Norwegian half, being elegantly simple, and my Italian half, with warmth of tradition and embedded meaning. I find great inspiration in the richness of urban neighborhoods and the idea of living small. All that I have designed over the years is a result of this philosophy that I have created around my company. As a designer, I search for the best high quality materials, that I would want to use everyday and embedded in all of the designs, you will find a story, giving meaning to the items you bring into your home. 

All of the products are 100% made in the USA and designed by Alyson Beaton. You can read more about my studio here.
