Kimberly Lewis Home is a Brooklyn based design studio that specializes inplayful patterned home furnishings. Feel free to check out our website with our current products at KimberlyLewisHome.com you can find us onFacebookTwitter, and Pinterest as well!
I originally launched Kimberly Lewis Home in May of 2011 at The International Contemporary Furniture Fair. I debuted a collection of boutique wallpaper, 4 patterns in 2 colorways each. We have been slowly growing over the last year with new products such as pillows, trays, and notecards. I have been working on our newest collection and I am dying to share it with the world!
Where will the Funds Will Go?
If I reach my goal of $3,000 the money will be used to bring the new collection from my computer screen into actual products! I have 5 new patterns that I will  make into wallpaper. If I exceed my goal I will also be making fabric as well. I will also be printing the patterns from the first collection on a beautiful linen which will be a new addition. I would also like to add to the pillow collection and introduce the new patterns in pillow form as well. 
Since the beginning I have been working with local manufacturers and I plan on continuing that with the second collection. Everything is printed not far from NYC and all of the pillows are sewn right here in the Garment District. Even the pillow fillers are made here in the US. Launching a new collection isn't cheap and this is where you come in!
What do the new patterns look like?
I have 6 new patterns that I can not wait to show you! (I may introduce more if I go over my goal as well) I have taken a lot of inspiration for a handful of patterns from one of my favorite places, the beach!  The patterns have a dash of nautical, a nod to some classic motifs and a whole lot of color and fun! Oh and did I mention Flamingos?! I will be unveiling more patterns as I start to climb to my goal but here is a sneak peak!
