Family companies are tricky things. For the next generation, the ever-present decision is whether to take on the burden of the business or venture out on one’s own. For Palida Boonyarungsrit the answer lies somewhere in between. Her family company has decades of experience in craft and interior design in Thailand. While she might one day take on the business, first she’s starting small, working with artistans in the family workshop to produce gorgeous boxes using super high-end materials.
