Original Designs and Timeless Geometries

Having designed best-selling rugs, kitchen textiles and tableware for Crate and Barrel, Kate D. Spain created eye heart hand in line with her creative passions and deep concerns around making a more sustainable planet.

Her earliest memories are of the sweet smell and cascading beauty of clematis blooms along the entryway to her great grandmother’s home. She’s always been drawn to nature and its unique rhythms from meadows and woods to the ocean. She finds happiness in the landscape and in observing the infinite beauty of her surroundings – where ideas for drawings appear on the undersides of leaves or in the shapes and structures of flowers. Her eye is attracted to these details in her world and in her memory, which mingle to spark new combinations of colors, lines, textures and shapes that she translates into her designs.

"The rugs I design for eye heart hand aspire to bring artful beauty to the landscape of your home. From my backyard garden to memorable travel, I combine timeless geometries and hand-drawn motifs in lyrical compositions that re-awaken our personal spaces. The feeling is light, airy, neutral and natural to complement the beautiful materials and the purity of their origin."
