Carole Shiber has been putting her imagination to work in the home since 1989, when she sold her first hand-painted placemats and napkins to Macy*s New York ~ a $10,000 order which she single-handedly filled from her bedroom in Brooklyn. Orders quickly followed from other neighborhood stores: ABC Carpet & Home, Barney’s New York, Henri Bendel and Fellissimo. Next came a personal appearance at Neiman-Marcus, with a trunk show yielding record sales._______________________________________________________________ As a painter and conceptual designer, Carole Shiber continued to follow her heart and used her head to bring original ideas to often predictable tabletop design. And with her fresh and friendly looks, and an ongoing presence at seasonal Gift and Home Textile Shows beginning in 1994, Carole Shiber Designs had quickly grown from a popular one-woman act to a very successful cottage industry, utilizing the talents of local NY artists. ____________________________________________________________________________ Then came the $40,000 order from Williams-Sonoma, with the big truck pulling up in front of her Brooklyn brownstone apartment to pick up 96 boxes of her graphically-shaped, hand-painted linen leaf and peony placemats, with the coordinating coasters ~ the driver admitting that this was his first domestic pick-up ever._______________________________________ Several successful licensing agreements have since brought her unique designs to every part of the country, distributing Carole's iconically-shaped placemats, unique bath designs and gorgeous ceramics to stores such as Bed, Bath & Beyond, Kohl's and Linens-n-Things, JCPenney and Macy's. __________________________________________________________ And, as always, you can find her premiere hand-painted linens and sculpted linen bowls and Everlasting Napkin Bouquets at fine arts & crafts show, national flower shows and right here @ caroleshiber.com. ____________________________________________________________________________ Now known in the industry for popularizing the graphically-shaped placemat, Carole’s bold, graphic images and broad painterly strokes, ~ at once whimsical yet sophisticated ~ continue to inspire creativity at home, and quite simply “make people happy”.______________________________________ She loves her work, and hopes it brings the same joy to your home as it brings her._________________________________________
