About our Company

Natasha Baradaran is the founder and creative visionary behind Natasha Baradaran Interior Design.

In 2020, Baradaran debuted her first capsule textile collection. A covetable line that unravels traditional gender norms and begs to be appointed. Baradaran, the ever-evolving creative spirit, mines her hobbies for inspiration. “Flamenco dancing is a secret passion of mine,” she says, “In my classes, dancers wear these tremendously powerful, flowing lace skirts—the performance is equal parts sensuality and power, and I see this collection as an extension of that."
