If you donâ€™t already know about Nani Marquina, itâ€™s time you learned.Â One look is all it takes to appreciate the designs of her stunning floor rugs. Iâ€™m instantly drawn to the texture of these pieces and I think each has its own unique way of instantly enhancing the home. Marquina claims that the success of both her designs and brand as a whole are due to â€œspecial attention and effort in finding the right raw materials and manufacturing processes from the very beginningâ€. I definitely wouldnâ€™t argue with that.
Nani Marquina and her designs have been recognized internationally, and itâ€™s easy to see why. Her awards include The National Design Award and the Premi Cambra a la GestiÃ³ Empresarial (Chamber Award of Design Management) in 2005, the International Womenâ€™s Entrepreneurial Challenge Award from the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, and FIDEM Award for Entrepreneurial Woman of the Year in 2007. She is also the chairwoman of the Professional Design Association and has been since 2006. Be sure to visit her website to see her entire collection and learn more about this talented designer.
