Born and raised in Greenwich Village, Frances Merrill moved to LA in 2001 to study textile design. The love of textiles that’s in her DNA was deepened by working at the Thai Silk Company, cofounded by her late relative Jim Thompson. Reath Design, which she launched in L.A. in 2009, mixes tradition and exoticism. Frances has a gift for designing outdoor spaces and creating indoor-outdoor flow. For one home in need of a dining room, playroom, and guest room, she increased living space by creating a dining room under the stars and filling a tepee with vintage rugs for play.
