The day the studio doors of Nicole Crowder Upholstery officially opened and ushered in a year of wild and beautiful moments.
This year saw the debut of my first furniture collection at West Elm (aye!), more upholstery workshops, wonderful clients and fresh collaborations, a move into and out of my first workspace studio, more travel, more inspiration, more mistakes and failures (cannot overstate how these have kept me in check).
Many seeds planted in 2017 are now dream collaborations on the calendar for projects throughout 2018 that I'm excited to share with you in the coming months. But more so I'm looking forward to using this space to launch the 'Studio 705' blog, named after my apartment, the place where I officially re-launched my furniture design business. Here I'll be sharing a variety of design news and notes, inspirations, and updates on what's happening in the studio and beyond.
And as always you can find me on Instagram--@nicolemcrowder-- or you can hit me up anytime via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for furniture collaborations, design news you've found out in the world, or just to say hi!
Thank you, 2017. Hello, 2018
