Carolina Irving named creative director for Oscar de la Renta Home
Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, February 4, 2014
NEW YORK — Carolina Irving has been named as the creative director of home for Oscar de la Renta LLC.
Irving succeeds interior designer Miles Redd, who has held the post since 2003 and resigned to focus on his interior design business.
Irving will oversee the creative direction and execution of the Oscar de la Renta Home collection including the gift and entertaining in-house collection, the furniture line by Century Furniture, home fabrics and wallpaper with Lee Jofa and rugs produced by Elson & Company.
She worked as an editor at House & Garden for 10 years until 2007, then worked with Hamish Bowles on Vogue Living, and started a fabric business, Carolina Irving Textiles, which she continues to operate.
"I am incredibly excited to work with Oscar," Irving said. "His style is iconic; if any fashion designer has legitimacy to do home, it's Oscar. He has the most fantastic sense of color and scale."
"While Miles Redd has done an excellent job here and we will miss him tremendously, I can think of no better person than Carolina to continue to develop our Home collection," said de la Renta. "Her taste is fabulous."
