Founded in 1995 by Beth van Dorp Collier and Chris Collier, vanCollier creates stunning designs with wide-ranging influences. Collections are rooted in a sense of place in their studied nods to the Far East, the American South, Art Nouveau, and beyond.
The couple draws on a rich knowledge of art history and antiques while finding inspiration in natural forms. By successfully melding classical details with contemporary sensibilities, vanCollier have an intrinsic elegance.
VanCollier carries distinctive North Carolina energy in their collections. The team works with local artists and artisans. Particular pendant lights and tables use tobacco sticks from old barns. Tayloe Hospital, a Georgian era building dating back to 1907, serves as their lovingly restored home base and workshop for their inspired art decor.
