The Walden Theory Story
Two Best Friends United by Passion for Thoughtful Design
Zadie and Aria bonded over their mutual love of exploring new experiences and thoughtful design in college, and have been best friends ever since. Deeply believing that every home could be a unique and inspiring space that is truly one’s own, Zadie and Aria founded Walden Theory to make the belief a reality.
