DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT: NEST STUDIO
Entirely woman-owned and operated by a talented team of hard-working mothers, Nest Studio is socially conscious, relying on reputable manufacturers and suppliers to help create its unique and inspiring hardware for high-end interiors. Nest Studio’s employees are committed to the company’s core values of promoting design and family as driving forces, women in business and local community involvement.
A self-described ‘design geek,’ Jessica Davis launched Nest Studio in 2012 after a frustrating search for beautiful knobs and pulls for her interior design projects inspired her to tailor-make her own pieces. Her first luxury hardware line, the Facet Series, and subsequent product designs quickly gained acclaim and Showroom Support, positioning Jessica as a sought-after designer for not only hardware but also lighting, kitchen and bath accessories and continued interiors projects.
Jessica draws from a wide range of design inspiration, based on insights gained through her youth living in Australia, Hong Kong and Dallas, and adult years in New York, Boston, Brooklyn, LA, New Jersey and now Atlanta. She transitioned a childhood obsession with home design magazines into an Art History degree at Princeton University and a Master's in Interior Design from The New England School of Art and Design. She started her career as a producer on Bob Vila's “Home Again,” and spent eight years as a member of Wilson Associates' New York and LA teams, where she designed luxury hotels in the US, China, and the Middle East. Jessica is especially influenced by the Bauhaus and Art Deco movements and the texture and dimension found in historic and contemporary art.
