Effortless style: Why Amber Lewis believes in keeping it simple

Amber Lewis crams a lot into her life. Running a hugely successful interior design business, designing her own line of homeware and commanding a social media following of millions.

At home in Calabasas, California, with her musician husband Mike, daughter Gwyneth (Gwynie for short) and a host of rescue animals , Amber's happiness lies within life's simple pleasures. She loves nothing more than curling up on the sofa, listening to music and watching Gwyneth dance round the backyard to her favourite songs.

Listen Better: An Open Letter from Patrick Spence

Music is at the heart of our mission at Sonos.  But in today’s world, music faces mounting threats. Too many artists face barriers to free expression and others can be jailed or even killed for merely sharing their songs over the internet. Communities lack space and resources to ensure all musicians can be heard. We’re failing to foster a new generation of music lovers prepared for success in the modern economy. Music, along with film, suffers from many violations to artistic freedom. Our failure to protect music is a failure to protect the basic liberties of all people.

That’s why we’re committing to work actively to promote and protect the future of music—using our business to support those confronting threats to music, whether targeted at artists or a symptom of broader injustices affecting all disempowered communities, and helping to make music a central part of life for everyone.
