Inside Fashion Entrepreneur Reni Folawiyo’s Stunning Lagos Penthouse

For Nigerian fashion entrepreneur, Reni Folawiyo, great style is simply a way of life. Her unerring eye has catapulted her fashion concept boutique, Alara, into the ranks of the world’s best, and this same talent has produced a spectacular penthouse in one of Lagos’ most exclusive neighborhoods. Folawiyo’s four-bedroom, nearly 14,000-square-foot residence boasts soaring floor-to-ceiling windows, breathtaking views of surrounding treetops, and an epic terrace (complete with infinity pool) that has achieved near-mythical status in the megacity. Brimming with sculpture, furniture, and art that Folawiyo has amassed during her more than three decades of world travel, the sun-suffused space is a reflection of her passions and experiences.
