Carson Converse's Geometric Inspiration

Carson Converse's Geometric Inspiration

Carson Converse takes all the beauty of geometric architectural forms and translates them into her art – whether it be works on paper or quilts. It's beautiful work. Here we take a tour of her home workspace in New York.

How long have you worked form home? 2 years, I am currently living in an apartment in Ossining, NY.

Describe your style? How would you define your aesthetic when it comes to interiors? It varies. I think design should be inspired by tradition, location and function; what I like varies based on what feels natural or appropriate for an interior.  What I don't like is anything that feels fussy or forced. I do have an affinity with modern clean lines with lots of glass, wood and concrete.  My personal style is a mix of mid-century modern, industrial loft, and Scandinavian interiors.

What inspires you? Architecture, interiors, nature, art, traditional crafts from around the world and the work of other designers.   I feel lucky because I essentially get paid to stay inspired and come up with design solutions; by the time I hit my studio the biggest problem is editing.
