was one of our three November Pitch Presenters. Besides being absolutely adorable (and we totally want to be her bff), she is also a rug genius. She discovered her love of rugs when she was 17 and hasn't looked back. We featured her Brooklyn showroom
back in May and she has come a long way since then! She gave us a really nice overview of the history of rugs and of her design inspiration. Click above for a few of her hit designs and below for her video and bio. Click here for upcoming Design Evening details
