Christiane is from Canada and ended up in New York by attending Parsons Design School. While she focused on fashion, she ended up working for Portico as a designer until it really started to lose its way. Looking around, she saw a gap in the market for modern bedding and founded Dwell.
Since 1999, Christiane has gotten married, had two children and taken on two business partners, her husband, Joshua Young, and Jennifer Chused, a former Donna Karan alum and stuck to her knitting. Now, after nearly ten years, she's really on the verge of a breakthrough.
Just a few months ago, Christiane relaunched her whole shebang with a new name, Dwell Studio, and MUCH nicer, cozier, more-lived-in photographs. It must have been a lot of work, but it really makes a difference in communicating "modern" without being cold.
We invite you to take a look here at what she is up to. Enjoy!
