Step inside Collector/Designer Ann Lawrence's Studio and you become enthralled by all her marvelous 'finds'. This vast room is filled with heirloom lace, linens, clothing, decorative and antique objects, and furniture, as well as bridal, tribal and ethnic textiles. Her passion for collecting began with lace then linen and then textiles gathered from around the world. She learned to sew as a child and turned her design sensibilities and passion for textiles into a business - creating upscale, one-of-a-kind evening wear for women.
Eleven years ago she moved from New York to Santa Fe and opened a studio where she creatively transforms beautiful textiles into clothing and pillows and bed linens. She is a master of re-purposing. Where most of us see a pair of vintage vases, Ann sees a pair of charming lamps.
Vintage textiles transform a bassinet and turn a bed into a haven of luxury.
Everywhere you look in this vibrant space, there's something even more wonderful.
