FROM THE VERY beginning of her kitchen design journey, Lauren Harte knew exactly what she wanted.

“I had a very clear vision in my head,” says Lauren, who moved into her new home in Mornington, Co Meath with her boyfriend in April. 

“We were aware that there wasn’t much wall space, so we wanted to make use of the storage and get as much as we could into the island. We have a microwave, dishwasher, bin and sink all in the island.”

As well as maximising storage space, Lauren wanted her range cooker to be a focal point of the room. “My boyfriend is a chef, so cooking is a really big part of our lives. We wanted to make a feature of the range cooker with a really nice canopy.”

While it might seem counterintuitive, getting dressed for work—even for working at home—is actually an even greater burden and source of anxiety for women professionals in the Zoom era.

So says Showly Wang, who with cofounder Amy Jiang, recently launched Pairess, a self-described feminist, direct-to-consumer fashion brand on a mission to help women succeed professionally with stylish apparel that’s also functional. (Think real pockets that actually fit a phone and machine washable fabrics.)

The following interview has been condensed and lightly edited for clarity.
