Online luxury marketplace 1stDibs is partnering with the Female Design Council to create an innovative collection of design works by women during Women’s History Month. 1stDibs and the Female Design Council, FDC, are combing resources to help the women designers expand their networks.
Founder of the FDC Lora Appleton stated, “Support is a cornerstone of success, and Female Design Council is committed to elevating all female-identifying people in design.”
The two partnering companies plan to unveil women-created contemporary pieces. Participating featured designers include Elodie Blanchard, Keavy Murphree, and Sunshine Thacker, and more.
The materials used are to highlight the power and strength of women and to reflect on their struggles, whether it's family, work-life, or friends. Materials used for the designs range from textiles, raw materials, ceramics, to gold leaf.
For all 31 days of Women’s History Month, pieces of the collection are to be released. Design pieces include lighting, abstract sculptures, paintings, outdoor furniture, tables, and so much more. Each piece created is distinct, innovative, and unique to the designer.
People can shop the design works by women on 1stDibs’ website where the pieces are up for purchase on a rolling basis. Shoppers can find the progressive pieces under ‘Female Design Council Furniture.’
Founded in 2001, 1stDibs is an e-commerce company that sells luxury furniture, fine art, and jewelry. Founded in 2016, the Female Design Council’s mission is to provide a strong professional community for all women in the design industry.
