Many of our Design Associates have artistic passions that they pursue outside of Room & Board’s walls, and Mandi Smethells is one of those room-whisperer-meets-artist types. Mandi is a Design Associate at our Edina, MN location by day and runs Smoothhills Weaving by night, where she creates and sells her modern, hand-woven wall hangings.
She was recently a featured artist on The Midwestival’s Midwest Maker and her home has also appeared on Apartment Therapy. Style runs in the family—her twin sister, Liz, is a Design Associate on our Shop From Home team. In fact, Mandi’s passion for weaving started when she decided to make a wall hanging for Liz’s birthday present. Check out Mandi’s Etsy Shop and Instagram feed for some textural inspiration.
