Lauren Servati launched Lauren Servati Textiles in the spring of 2018. The collection was created from Lauren’s original watercolor paintings and sketches, and inspired by her love of nature and florals, as well as her time spent living in Europe. All of the textiles in the collection are printed in small batches in the United States. We work directly with one of the oldest continually operated linen mills in Belgium, to source all of our heritage ground cloths.
“I’ve been painting and designing for as long as I can remember. Growing up, my mother was a graphic designer who ran her own floral design company on the weekends. I remember many late nights spent painting and drawing on the floor in her studio. My father also loved plants and grew a beautiful garden, so I imagine that all of these influences helped shape me into who I am today. From an early age I knew that whatever I did, I had this need in me to create beautiful things.
I went on to attend Florida State University in my hometown of Tallahassee, FL, and gradated with a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design with a concentration in art and architectural history. After graduation, I worked for several years in hotel and restaurant design before transitioning to residential design as my primary area of interest. I continued to love painting and spent time exploring and developing as an artist after work and on the weekends. In 2014 I discovered watercolor painting and absolutely fell in love with it. I knew at that point that I wanted more from my artwork than just an after-hours hobby.
For most of my life, I’ve tried to keep separate my two worlds of interiors and art. But try as I might, my two worlds keep colliding and I often find myself at the intersection of art and design. My textile collection Lauren Servati Textiles is an example of this.
My career and my passion for travel and exploration has carried me from Florida to Chicago, New York, and Paris, and now finally back home to the south. I currently live in Atlanta, with my husband Phil and our bright orange cat Sebastian.”
