Here, we ask designers to take a selfie and give us an inside look at their life.
Occupation: Rug designer and interior designer.
Hometown: Chappaqua, New York.
Studio location: Miami.
Describe what you make: I’ve set out to turn fine art and mixed media art into woven rug creations.
The most important thing you’ve designed to date: My own rug collection is what I’m most proud of. Starting with only a few designs, we’ve created an entire collection of modern forms and shapes for the floor.
Describe the problem your work solves: We try to play with forms and shapes to create the perfect rug for even the most difficult spaces. Each piece is made to order, so in most cases we’re given a floor plan and we create to include all the furniture pieces and cuts and corners of the room.
Describe the project you are working on now: In addition to my own collection, I also work with well-known artists and designers to collaborate to realize their vision. I’m currently working on a few new collabs with artists such as Typoe and Avram Rusu lighting studio. We also just launched one with an incredible New York–based artist named Jenna Krypell. Also expanding on my mirror collection with Parts + Assembly.
A new or forthcoming project we should know about: We’ve been working with the Miami-based design firm Moniomi to create some incredible pieces for their Design Miami installation taking place during Art Basel week in December.
What you absolutely must have in your studio: Music and candles. Can’t work without both of these!
What you do when you’re not working: I spend time with my husband and two sons, and a new passion is wakesurfing with my amazing group of girlfriends.
Sources of creative envy: I have so many. Kelly Wearstler, Kelly Behun, Axel Vervoordt, Patricia Urquiola, Sebastien Herkner, and the list goes on…
The distraction you want to eliminate: Bingeing Netflix. Such a time suck but I can’t help myself.
