As the daughter and granddaughter of Boston interior decorators, Nancy Green grew up imagining that a matching set of luggage looked like a pair of rope-handled textile sample bags—overflowing with vibrant brocades. She followed her love of the decorative arts to become a surface pattern designer. Nancy’s designs draw upon the exotic and whimsical, inspired by Mexican textiles, Iznik pottery, or Japanese Shibori. She earned her stripes (and polka dots too) creating dinnerware collections for retailers the world over. Nancy currently lives and works in Hoboken, New Jersey.
