TANIA JOHNSON DESIGN
Founded in New York by Tania Johnson in 2010, TJD specializes in custom made, contemporary, hand knotted rugs. The collection is inspired by the natural world, the way light creates shadows and reflections, the microscopic details found in nature and the infinite textures created through layering. Johnson creates ethereal designs and translates them into intricately woven rugs. The collectable pieces feature original, cutting-edge designs, and are woven or knotted by artisans in Nepal, in the traditional Tibetan style, using lustrous combinations of silk, wool and Pashmina. The British born designer graduated from London’s Royal College of Art with a Master of Arts in woven textiles. For more than 14 years Johnson designed textiles for such top home brands as Martha Stewart, Chilewich, Vera Wang, and Calvin Klein Home. As a designer for Calvin Klein Home, Johnson created the brands’ first rug collection in 2002. FOB New York, NY.
