i've been a huge fan of angela adams' work for years now..it's very simple and has a very comfortable feeling to it, but at the same time still seems edgy and interesting. it's organic and amoebic, but at the same time, geometric and abstract..i love all the elements, she puts them together well.
i certainly would as well...! i would love to own a rug...they're so colorful and fun without being overwhelming or outlandish.
here are some bios and other information on angela adams:
Angela Adams grew up on an island off the coast of Maine. An island upbringing helped to shape her unique perspective on design. Fashions and styles come and go on the mainland, but on the island the decades seem to linger. Angela's designs are known for their sense of timelessness, simplicity and balance - all inspired by the remote and harsh natural beauty of life off the coast of Maine.
Early in her design career, Angela worked as a decorative painter. As her business grew, she sought an alternative medium for her expanding design repertoire. Rugs were a natural choice, due to the Maine legacy of handmade textiles and floor coverings. She fell in love with the process of hand-tufting, a technique that she reinvented to fit her own aesthetic.
Inspired by the versatility of this new medium, Angela edited her patterns. She simplified them to their purest essence and translated them into textural landscapes. Hand-tufted and sheared into undulating patterns, her rugs became masterfully crafted works of art. This innovative approach and Angela's dynamic patterns helped to quickly establish her as a leader in contemporary design.
Angela is constantly exploring new mediums for her designs. The Studio Rug line, an affordable alternative to her custom rugs, places Angela's signature patterns and style into more homes. Expanding beyond style for the home and into fashion, a collection of handbags was introduced in 2003. Angela continues combine quality and integrity as she expands her collection to create a design-inspired lifestyle.
her website is so thorough and chockfull of things
I thought it was like a department store
has a mass-production feeling
Surprised it is just one (or two rather) designer(s) and a lot of custom items there
