Boston based designer Debra Folz was recently awarded the “5 Under 40” by New England Home and has been nominated as one of five “Women to Watch” by the council for women in the Arts. She boasts a Master of Fine Arts in Furniture Design from R.I.S.D. and has been featured in top publications ranging from the New York Times to Dwell magazine. In sum, this is a woman on the rise and definitely someone to keep an eye on. Shown here’s a peek at her latest work!
“I think traditionally textiles and embroidery are used as an adornment… in this collection it’s really about reversing that and creating structure to celebrate the fabrics themselves.” – Debra Folz
Folz’ work is motivated by collaboration, the ambition to learn new processes, and the translation of traditional craft and manufacturing methods into contemporary visual languages and objects. We invite you to view her full collection at debrafolz.com.
