Studio Stalker: Take A Tour Inside A Textile Guru's Bohemian Paradise

We have a serious girl crush on Joanna Williams. As the founder of creative consultancy Kneeland Co., this boho beauty (check our those lust-worthy locks!) has the dream job — traveling 'round the globe in search of rare textile prints and design inspiration for heavy-hitting fashion clients like Anthropologie, Suno and Ralph Lauren. (And, luckily for us, she's decided to share the wealth — her new e-tail, Kneeland Mercado, is like a bona-fide global handicraft market, minus the jet lag.)
Of course, our tour of Williams' work studio revealed a color-saturated paradiso. Housed in a former Atwater Village shampoo factory, this slice of heaven embodies both craft and creativity: We couldn’t keep our hands off of those antique, embroidered swatches, oversized Mexican rugs, and color-blocked macramé chairs. Sensory overload? Yes, in the best possible way!
