Stissing Design: Tim Jones (Pine Plains, NY)

It does not get more local than a Pine Plains artist! Tim Jones is a United States artist and designer, whose works grace locations around the world.  Mr. Jones has been heavily influenced by his deep roots in the New York hamlet of Attlebury, where his family owned and operated the local blacksmith shop for generations since the 1700s. Favoring work in metal as had his forefathers, Tim has been a leader in developing zinc-topped and industrial furniture in America. A renowned portfolio of interior designers has used Tim’s designs in their projects, many of which have been showcased in Country Living, Veranda, Traditional Home, El Decor, Main Street Magazine, The Country and Abroad, The New York Times, among others. In recent years, Tim has focused more time on large scale sculpture, in addition to creating bespoke pieces for artful living.

the Corcoran College of Art and Design with a BFA degree in Graphic Design.

and the Wright Brothers 100th anniversary exhibit. She worked for a small
design studio in Ashburn, Virginia before her son was born. Her various work

Dagmara captures images of her subjects utilizing raw photography, and through the graphic design process, she creates stunning images that are both captivating and intriguing to her audience. The subtle beauty and striking detail of her work draws the viewer into the piece itself examining every nuance and dimension until they realize its origin – art in nature.

The Tartan Blanket Co. (Edinburgh, Scotland) 

Emma and Fergus are the co-founders of The Tartan Blanket Co., a company born out of a desire to create a company with real passion and real soul. They wanted to create beautiful, natural products which would bring warmth to people's hearts and homes, as well as having a truly positive impact on the world around us. 
Traditional Scottish tartan blankets are made of wool or cashmere which means they are all natural and fully sustainable, which felt really important to focus on, but Emma and Fergus soon realized that Scottish mills were not always the most sustainable, transparent and dynamic option, so they began to look further afield. After exploring many different production options, they settled on two main partnerships in India (run by a family team, who uses 100% recycled materials and supports a community of women who hand finish all of our recycled wool blankets) and Inner Mongolia (another family run business that uses traditional, people-led farming methods, putting the animals welfare first. They also work with local dyers, spinners, weavers and finishers, which supports the village community and maintains end-to-end production transparency and control).
