Deborah graduated from Syracuse University in 1999 with a Bachelor Of Fine Arts, after majoring in Surface Pattern Design. Her unique degree led her to the Home Furnish Design industry in New York City, where she designed bedding for Tommy Hilfiger, and custom carpets for Stark Carpets. Her clients included S.C. Johnson, The Minnesota Historical Society, Donald Trump, and many other discerning clientele.
After returning to her hometown of Chicago, she opened her own 1,400 square foot showroom where she designed and imported custom carpets. She then went on to sell for Tai Ping Carpets/Edward Fields, where she helped Chicgoland top designers and architects such as Nate Berkus and Matt Lorenz, design custom carpets for clients such as The Pritzgers, The Office of the Chicago Tribune, and Edward Bronfman.
In 2011, she relocated to Israel and brought her own business of custom designing and importing rugs to this region. After providing rugs to a few homes such as one of the Recanatti homes, she accepted the position of Israeli Sales Manager of The Dixie Group, an umbrella organization for carpet brands such as Masland, Fabrica, Atlas and more.
Throughout her professional career, she has also enjoyed her hobby of hand painting and customizing children's bedrooms, furniture and accessories.
While you can still place custom rug orders with her, Deborah has returned to her artistic roots, embracing her passion for hand designing and painting. In 2015 she began building her portfolio of custom ketubot (Jewish marriage certificates), and has since been providing couples with unique, custom ketubot.
Whether it is a rug, ketubah, (or furniture/accessories), Deborah's passion for designing and painting shines through her custom products!
