From her hand-tufted rugs to her retro-cool tableware, designer Angela Adams has a flair for giving traditional aesthetics a funky update. Raised and now residing in Maine with her furniture-designer husband Sherwood Hamill, Adams draws her inspiration from nature to produce surprisingly fashion-forward looks, including a line of handbags.
Whatever the medium, Adams' stunning designs are characterized by simple but surprising geometric patterns and modern, muted color combinations. While the handmade rugs are (understandably) rather pricey, Adams offers plenty of very affordable products too; she's even got a very hip comforter set offered at Bed Bath and Beyond. Check out the examples of her work below (just click on the photos) and tell me what you think.
