Who's behind Aroopy?

Ainslie likes Decorating a Small Apartment   Ainslie & Misha Misha prefers Decorating a Studio Apartment

Aroopy Inc., is based in Los Angeles, California and was started in Oct2011 by Ainslie Yuen, an Australian with a doctorate in Engineering from Cambridge University. Ainslie now lives between Sydney and Los Angeles.

"For the last decade I've been hopping around the big cities of the world - studying, working, living, holidaying. I lived in maybe 15 different apartments or rooms in that time, always with minimal belongings. When I finally started buying furniture I was disappointed by what I found and I knew I'd get bored of any design pretty fast. So the Pouffle was born. When you feel like a change - slip on a different design!!"
- Ainslie

Everyone asks what "Aroopy" means - it means the crazy fun that can be had when you take Life less seriously.

Aroopy's products are Made in the USA: the poufs are made in the USA, the pouffles are printed, cut and sewn in the USA.
