Modern Rugs: Emma At Home
Emma Gardner designs beautiful things for the home. Her award-winning collections are infused with her uniquely American and contemporary point of view. Born in Kyoto, Japan to an English father and Russian-American mother, she grew up in New York City and now lives in Northern California. Asian themes, modern art and natural forms are all evident inspiration in the quality products under her emma gardner design and emma at home brands.
emma at home is a collection of hand-tufted rugs of singular design and quality, embroidered linen pillows, soft baby alpaca throw blankets, giclees of original paintings on stretched canvas, long-burning soy candles with delicious scents, case goods, upholstered chairs and sofas and, over the near and far terms, many more beautiful things.
Emma says about her work: “My approach is always to try to stay true to my own inspiration, being aware of what’s going on in the design world but avoiding becoming slave to it, or trying to second guess trends.”
I have tried to make the most beautiful designs I can, using color combinations I love, expanding into the exciting world of new products — new surfaces to design and beautify.
“And while we continue to work with clients on made-to-order rugs through the trade, I am thrilled to now be able to design products that are more varied, more affordable and to let my love of color reign freely.”
