Because of the passion she has for furniture making, she resigned in 2016 as a business development manager in an HR consulting firm and Information Technology Company.
When asked about the challenges she faces in this industry, Kehinde said “Well, no business without challenges, every business must first encounter a rough beginning before benefits can be derived. Even life itself is not a bed of roses. She further provided- “Although, the most recurrent challenges I face is with artisans who don’t stand by their words. These artisans do not meet up with deadlines and that was why I had to acquire the technical skill and since then, I have been making pieces of furniture myself.”
Kehinde is a matchless Interior decorator and furniture designer.
The uniqueness and the amazing styles of her work speak volume of her distinctive talent as a furniture maker.
We salute the remarkable impact of Kehinde Omotosho in the furniture industry. She’s truly a woman among women.
