|About angela adams
Angela Adams grew up on an island twelve miles off the coast of Maine. This unusual upbringing helped to shape her unique perspective on design. Fashions and styles come and go on the mainland, but on the island the decades seem to linger. Angela’s designs are known for their sense of timelessness, simplicity and balance, all inspired by the remote and harsh natural beauty of life off the coast of Maine.
Early in her design career, angela worked as a decorative painter. As her business grew, she sought an alternative medium for her expanding design repertoire. Rugs were a natural choice due to the Maine legacy of hand made textiles and floor coverings. She fell in love with the process of hand tufting wool rugs and cotton rugs, a technique that she reinvented to fit her own aesthetic.
Inspired by the versatility of this new carpet medium, angela edited her patterns. She simplified and translated them into textural landscapes, also creating beautiful shag rugs. Hand tufted and sheared into undulating patterns, her area rugs became masterfully crafted works of art. This innovative approach and her dynamic patterns helped to quickly establish her as a leader in contemporary design.
