Ulrika Lundgren is the fashion designer behind Amsterdam-based cult label Rika (her fans include Madonna and Helene Christensen, among others), but we're more interested in her interiors style.

Located upstairs from the Rika showroom, Maison Rika is Lundgren's small guesthouse and gallery space, outfitted with a mix of contemporary and vintage furniture. For more information, visit Maison Rika.
