In honor of International Women’s Day, I wanted to introduce you to a few of the powerhouse women in our retail and design community. I hope you’re as inspired by them as I am—be sure to check out their shops if you’re local!

"Jamie Young’s creative lighting caught my eye years ago when Jamie introduced her first collection at the Atlanta Market. While Jamie’s fixtures and lamps continue to impress, her expansion into the world of accessories and furniture has captivated an even greater audience. The company’s large offering of leather and hide poufs in various sizes is one of the best on the market. I used two of the hide poufs under this console table to add the perfect layer of pattern and texture. Jamie’s pieces are original, organic, and artful, and they always provide the perfect touch in my designs."

“[My] home is in the Historic District in Marblehead, MA, a protected district with over 200 pre-Revolutionary War buildings. My home is ca.1800.

This Budapest Floor Lamp balances my love of the building's antique architecture with bold organic modern [style]. Rooms in the Historic District tend to be smaller scale which can feel cramped, so to open up the space I placed this very large solid wood floor lamp. It’s been an iconic JYC moment in my home for over 15 years.”

“I love the Bella Table Lamp, classic ceramic but with texture and subtle color that changes depending what is around. For that same reason, Dahlia and Catalina are favorites. I also love the sexy Pisa floor lamp, and think it adds an exclamation point to a space. We consider our style coastal modern and all of the ones I mentioned fit our niche.”
