Women’s History Month: March Roundup + Music Playlist

March marks Women’s History Month, an important time to celebrate in general, and for us an important time to celebrate and share female designers and artists. Historically, the design industry has been a male-dominated field but the tide continues to turn, finally acknowledging the invaluable contributions women have been making in design since the beginning. In recent years we’ve seen a more diverse mix of people breaking molds and doing really great work that deserves attention. These women are forward-thinkers who are paving the way far outside the box with their innovative artwork and designs, changing the game and making their mark. On this last day of March, we’re looking back on all of the inspiring women designers we featured while listening to some of our favorite songs from women in our latest Spotify playlist.

Interior designer Susanna Cots created the most perfect, light-filled, and cozy retreat in the Costa Brava region of Spain. Copper House seamlessly blends materials, textures, and warm earthy shades to create this dream-worthy escape designed to support emotional wellbeing.

Jess Humphrey made a drastic change in life when deciding to walk away from a 20-year career in fashion to focus on art. After spending time learning at the Corning Museum of Glass, Jess found a new medium to translate her two-dimensional collages to – hot casted glass. She arranges broken bits of glass within the molten glass to create these intriguing sculptures with abstract elements “frozen” inside.

We took a deep dive into the product design world to discover some cool + modern, women-led brands that deserve a second (and third) look, from art prints to wooden stools, matching person and dog rain gear to cozy throws, and everything in between that will make you feel good about supporting female designers while getting your hands on some awesome designs.
