“Pretty is as pretty does” is the abiding maxim at nyc’s dps® (Diane Paparo studio) and it’s clearly evident in the studio’s spring introductions. As an artist, interior designer and product designer, Diane Paparo has never been satisfied with creating “just another pretty face.” maximum functionality is fundamental to each design. her métier is designing furnishings that solve multiple challenges – beautifully.
ICFF Booth #2040
Near our office in Madison Square Park, the artist Leo Villareal has installed a 30-foot tall, illuminated sculpture, titled “Buckyball.” It is made up of LED tubes arranged in a series of geometric shapes — the lights emit a variety of colors and dynamic sequences.
Diane Paparo Studio’s geometric inspiration is in full effect with our Lotus hand tufted wool rug. The bold Lotus combines cut and loop, high and low pile in distinct color combinations for a dynamic composition.
Thanks to our lovely ladies Carmel Sherman and Kathie DeWitt for a wonderful job.
Next stop #BDNY booth 4324 in #NYC. See you there!
Reclaim. Re-use. Retrain. Recycle. Resolve.
Defining all Diane Paparo Studio boutique home furnishings is an embedded commitment to sustainable and environmentally-sound production practices. Their credo: Reclaim. Re-use. Retrain. Recycle. Resolve. Although every dps product is built to last, made to exacting standards by environmentally-responsible artisans and designed to be passed down for generations, nothing embodies their “Cradle-to-Cradle” credo better than its Wood Slab Furniture Collection.
All dps Wood Slab Furniture is crafted by hand in an off-grid, solar-powered shop on a mountainside in Montana. Each piece is made-to-order based on selected slabs and availability. Every effort is made to source slabs which are recycled from naturally fallen trees or trees at risk.

Sending a thank you to all who took a moment to browse our booth at ICFF and High Point Market as this busy trade show season comes to a close.
This year dps takes the art of sheepskin rugs to a new level with graphic shearlings. The Kubos design features a patchwork of cloud white, driftwood, marine blue and sand. The pattern can be made in a variety of colors as rugs or runners. dps shearling rugs are made from premium Australian and New Zealand lambskins that have been carefully processed, cut and meticulously matched and sewn.
Nature provides us with the oldest classics and the critics are falling for the dps Timber Cocktail Table. This newest addition to their slab collection pairs reclaimed live-edge walnut and acrylic to create a beautiful balancing act. The table appears to almost float in mid-air. The Timber Cocktail Table was created exclusively for dps by Montana rustic furniture craftsman, Paul Dumond, in his off-the-grid, solar powered shop.
