“When Eugenie Perret met Defne Veral in a small coastal town on the Aegean Sea, the two were 10 years old. The Istanbul natives continued their friendship in the United States when they moved here for college and stayed to pursue careers in design. Now Perret, who co-owns the Old City furniture gallery Minima, and Veral, who owns an interior design firm in Connecticut, are partners in AKIS (pronounced ah-KEES) — a brand-new line of home and fashion accessories made by Turkish artisans.”
