“I feel blessed to have raised my family in NYC, the same place where our business was born some 30+ years ago. Our studio has grown from a textile design studio into a “Lifestyle Brand Studio,” working with some of the top names in both the Fashion and Home Industries. My passion has always been based in the arts with a connection to curation and style. I feel my fine arts background has helped me look at the world of design with an “eyes wide open” mentality.” – Nancy Fire
