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, where she proved high end rugs to a clients such the Recanatti family.
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. In 2015 she began building her portfolio of custom ketubot (Jewish marriage certificates), and has since been providing couples with unique, one of a kind ketubot. More recently she has returned to her passion for hand designing and painting repeating patterns for the production of bedding, apparel fabric, wall covering, paper products and more.
Whether it is a rug, ketubah, or surface pattern design, Deborah's passion for designing and painting shines through her custom products!
