Cloth and Goods studio is multi- purposed. Melissa’s vision is for it to not only be a showroom for her selected wares but also to act as a hub for artists to display their work, have evening lectures, and other activities that compliment the work of the studio.


Melissa discovered her love for design at a young age. Growing up near New York City she was influenced by fashion. Her mother worked in the fashion industry, and she shopped directly from the showrooms in the garment center. Having a great eye for fabric, color, and style, Melissa soon became a personal shopper.

Melissa’s interests expanded from fashion to interior design, and she became a prop stylist for catalogs and editorials in magazines, such as Pottery Barn Catalog, Country Living magazine, Food and Wine magazine, to name a few. She has been in the interior design field for the past 12 years.

Extensive global travel informs Melissa’s textile collection. One way she gets to know a place is by looking for the unexpected, whether it is in nature or shopping for one-of-a-kind items in flea markets and antique shops around the world. She has lived in California and Hawaii and currently resides in Portland, Oregon.
