Copper and Tweed: Behind the Name
One of my favorite things about interior design is manipulating materials to cater to a client’s individual style. From 2010-2016, I worked as an interior designer at a Las Vegas-based design studio. During that time, I worked with clients whose styles ranged from industrial to transitional to bohemian. Each space was a puzzle whose pieces needed to fit together in just the right way to achieve the desired outcome. I love using timeless textures and lines to create a variety of styles for my clients. Over the last four years, I’ve worked as an independent designer and dreamed of starting my online store. My design process inspired both the name and direction of this new company.
Copper and tweed are both materials that have been used in furnishings for hundreds of years; their versatility makes them a perfect fit in most any space. Copper, when given texture as in a hammered vase or stamped backsplash, can provide the warmth inherent in traditional or rustic design. When made clean and polished as a range hood or apron-front sink, it brings modernity to a space. Tweed can be used with equal ease on a tufted sofa in a cottage-inspired living room and on an armchair with tapered legs for the perfect mid-century look.
As I’ve built my company, I’ve had this goal in mind: to provide beautiful custom home furnishings that will fit in any home. As a result, our website has a selection of carefully curated pieces that, much like copper and tweed themselves, are at once classic and versatile. I believe that everyone deserves to have a home that fits their personality, and my greatest hope is that Copper and Tweed can make that possible for our customers.
