Siberia-born Olga and Anatoly Alekseev are on a mission: to change the perception of Russian interior design.

“It’s such a cliché, what Russians want,” Anatoly says. “A lot of working-class people got very wealthy, and they wanted their interiors to show that off. That’s not the case any more; people appreciate good design. We call it understated luxury.”
