Emerald City Studios



I started Emerald City Studios in 2020 with the idea of creating pieces that bring people together.
It began with rugs, which often function as the unspoken go-to meeting place, an invitation for all to commune and fellowship.
Since then, our catalog has grown to include other textile and digital work, but the care, intention, and meaning have remained the same.
A unique piece of art or furniture has the power to spark conversation, catalyze the sharing of ideas, and foster inspiration.
At Emerald City Studios, we are in the business of not just creating statement pieces for your home,
but focal points of personal expression that help build community and construct safe spaces in your life.
Let us help make your space a beautiful extension of you.
