April Nemeth Founder and Creative Director, LK (Little Korboose)

April Nemeth is a Los Angeles based artist, designer and entrepreneur. From a family of creative entrepreneurs and intensely hard workers, April got her start as an artist at a young age and works in a variety of mediums. Her grandfather taught her how to paint at age three. Through highly personalized and holistic curriculum, she began her formal creative education and developed her critical thinking and effective communication skills at the college preparatory day and boarding school, Gilmour AcademyShe then attended the NASAD accredited Visual Communication Design School at Kent and holds a MA/BFA in 2D and 3D Swiss Visual Communication Design, yielding a combined degree in graphic design, photography and illustration. While there, April fell in love with modern design and architecture traces of which can be seen in her work. With wanderlust and a connection to Mother Earth in her DNA, travel and nature serve as constant sources of inspiration. Sixteen years after founding the company, she still creates every LK design herself, while simultaneously driving the vision. Recent LK partners of note include West Elm, Concrete Collaborative and Toki Mats. April’s work has been featured in various publications over the years, most recently, Dwell, Vogue and GRAY magazine.

In addition to leading her brand of home and lifestyle objects at Little Korboose, April practices at her multi-disciplinary atelier, The Studio of April Nemeth, where she creates strategy, design and photography for clients with aligned values whenever possible.

Prior to dedicating herself to her practices full time, April worked as a professional designer then design director for a multi-billion dollar creative products company for 13 years, absorbing all she could and making her an expert collaborator. Her passion for creativity has driven her to wear many hats in the field and gain experience and seniority as a graphic designer, content creator, textile designer, product developer, design director, creative director and business owner. In tandem, she has devoted much of her life to pursuing interests that help protect our planet and the people on it.

Last but not least, April is a lifelong world traveler and holds a certification in Yoga and Meditation. Merging all she knows, in 2018, she founded the creative retreat company Juniper & Stone, where she combines art, travel and yoga to curate transformative experiences for individuals, groups and businesses. All proceeds are contributed to the communities in which the retreats take place in an effort to give back.


The name Little Korboose is a play off of modern architect Le Corbusier, one of April’s most prominent influences. Corbusier is also the name of her late Russian blue fur baby of 16.3 years
