Founders: Cooper Collier and Nicki Rose
Graphic designer Cooper Collier has worked for big names such as Caspari and Williams-Sonoma and Nicki Rose spent more than 12 years in interior design. So when both wanted to try something new, it was an easy decision to collaborate. “Two minds are always better than one, especially in the creative process,” Rose says. Sensing a gap in the tabletop market, the duo set out to create designs that are unique, accessible, and not overly formal. “Our goal is to provide a really fun, chic, usable product,” Rose says. Collier Rose Ink’s line consists of hand-screened linens (including napkins, placemats and coasters), fabric by the yard, pillows, custom stationery and original artwork. “We created the different collections with the idea that you can mix and match them,” Rose says. “Also, almost everything we make could integrate easily into an existing home, so it’s a great way to refresh what you have.” Stay tuned, because Collier Rose Ink plans to begin producing wallpaper next.
