The history of companies usually starts from one person.
And so it was also in the case of Dekornik. Kasia “Bachor”, a graphic by profession and vocation, in 2009 lands with her boyfriend Maciek, at the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. Their romantic escapade becomes the beginning of a business idea. Kasia is fascinated with the high number of wonderful decorations in tiny boutiques of Montmartre. After arriving in Poland she decides to create a brand that will implement this charming French design to Polish apartments.
This is how – on the 1st of December 2009, Dekornik was born. From that moment Kasia designs all the patterns, while Maciek watches over the production site.
Dekornik gains recognition on the Polish market, and the projects starts to appear in prestigious periodicals.
After five years, Paulina “Młoda” joins the Dekornik’s team, and revolutionizes the way the company operates. Together with Kasia they decide to do only what brings them the most fun, that is … decorating children’s rooms. From 2014, Dekornik shifts towards children’s rooms and designs only stickers and wallpapers for the youngest. The girls also decide to cooperate with other graphic designers whose work they value, and whose personalities they adore: Kasia Goraj Stróżyńska, Magda Nowakowska, Ewa Najwojczyk.
Currently, they work on the line Warsaw-Palermo, although the companys headquarter is still located in a charming and green corner in the center of Warsaw. Kasia is the creative force of Dekornik, while Paulina is the master of marketing.
Dekornik is the most recognizable brand of Polish wallpapers and stickers. It is also present at various European markets.
