About Maja Lithander Smith

The ultimate treasure hunter, Maja Lithander Smith has long traveled the globe in search of one-of-a-kind pieces to elevate her design work and clients’ homes.  FOUND by Maja was born of a desire to share a bit of the beauty she finds in her travels more broadly.  With a background in interior and product design and retail, Maja’s curated and collaborative collections include fabrics, rugs, furnishings, lighting and decorative home accessories.

Earlier in her career, Maja was the owner of a home decor boutique in Southern California featuring lifestyle products, luxury goods, and home accessories, as well as the founding principal of Alegria Design, an interior design business in San Francisco, New York and Tokyo.

With an eclectic style that fuses approachable elegance and refined yet exotic details, her work inspires a sense of place and emotion. Her vintage collection is procured from marketplaces and artisan-friends around the globe. Establishing collaborative relationships and supporting economic opportunity for people in under-resourced communities, from Morocco to India and beyond, is integral to Maja’s approach and collection.
