The patterns in Portfolio by Parisa are both modern and traditional at the same time, capturing timelessness through color and classical architectural inspirations.
Parisa is a Philadelphia-based interior designer and 2nd generation rug designer whose appreciation for classical architecture is the inspiration for her new licensed rug collection for Kalaty Rug Corporation. She holds a master’s degree in interior design and architecture from Drexel University. With regard to her design philosophy, Parisa says: “My philosophy is to capture timelessness through tradition while embracing the future. I learned at a young age that culture, history and architecture are what defines time and space. Every piece in a room should tell a story… some timid and some bold. After all good design is all about color, scale, light, space, composition and balance. Great design is timeless and appeals to the subconscious, echoing the past and evoking strong memories. My bold, large-scale patterns are respectful of history while my color palette is a departure from traditional colors by welcoming the future.”
