This is what we do… Pulp Design Studios is an award-winning national interior design firm specializing in residential, hospitality, and commercial interior design. We turned love for custom product design and individual style into an upcoming line of home goods, called Pulp Home. The newly launched Pulp Home is a boutique online shop that will bring you original Pulp products, provide access to custom made-to-order pieces designed by Pulp Design Studios, and allow shoppers to experience curated products that have been used in Pulp Design Studios’ coveted spaces.
Pssst... Beth & Carolina have graciously offered a 20% discount on everything at Pulp Home exclusively to CLOTH & KIND readers! Enter CANDK20 at checkout (valid through 01.31.13). Happy shopping! There’s something you need to know about me… BETH: I’m obsessed with television. My very favorite hobby is to get sucked into a good show or marathon. Anything from The Walking Dead, Homeland, and my guilty pleasure Bravo’s Real Housewives.
CAROLINA: I’m a painfully honest person. You either love it or hate it, but you always know what you’re going to get. In fact, if I were a Real Housewife that would be my intro!
Here’s the scoop on how Pulp came to be… We both lived in Dallas and worked together in commercial and hospitality design. As Registered Interior Designers, we both knew how we wanted to do things as designers, and weren’t getting the satisfaction under someone else’s helm. We took a leap and started our company together with the hopes of creating a lifestyle for our clients and customers. We went from taking side jobs on the nights and weekends to now having a full-blown firm, with two locations across the country in Dallas and Seattle, focusing on residential and hospitality projects, and an exciting line of home goods in the works.
My absolute favorite thing we sell right now is… BETH: The Piper lidded box CAROLINA: The Baroque lamp Here’s a peek at what we’re working on right now… The very first Pulp Home original item available to the public is our Starburst Pull. They’ve been requested more than anything we’ve ever designed. You can really update any piece of furniture and make it something extraordinary with these pulls. They’re actually available for pre-order now! Use your CLOTH & KIND exclusive discount code to order them for yourself (CANDK20, valid through 01.31.13).
We’re most proud of… We are really proud to be able to bring great design to all walks of life. We pride ourselves on being able to work within a variety of budgets and have a high/low aesthetic. We have luxury apartments in New York, mansions in Dallas, and also humble brick Tudors in Seattle, along with small residences in Chicago. We’re bringing our home goods design to the market with a high/low approach. And, for those who simply can’t afford good design or even a roof over their head, we give back to many organizations like Dwell with Dignity and Habitat for Humanity.
We really detest… The worst part of our job is it’s unpredictability. But, it’s also the best. As a business owner, it’s a constant struggle to straddle the line of enjoying the unexpected... the client calls, the new opportunities, the fun of doing interviews that you just can’t pass up, and still being able to plan your time. It’s a double-edged sword!
We could never have done it without… Each other. This is truly a team effort. We’re very similar in many ways, but we also balance each other perfectly. Each of us comes to the plate when the other is not as strong and we allow each other to shine in the areas that we’re each good at. We consistently read these for inspiration… BETH: While I love to read, I’m a more visual person... Hands down, Instagram & Pinterest are what I pour over daily for inspiration.
We would like to share the Limelight with… Jeanine of Aphrochic. We just love her aesthetic. We love her drive. And, the best part is that she is so truly genuine! #sharethelimelight
