Meet The Maker: Janelle Pietrzak

Surrounded by the stunning landscape of the San Gabriel mountains, it’s no surprise that artist and co-founder of All Roads Design, Janelle Pietrzak, creates free-spirited cushions and throws imbued with West Coast warmth.

All Roads Home

A keen hiker, it was a recent trip to Joshua Hill that inspired the latest designs.

I hike at least once a week, but it’s always different, and to me, it’s always beautiful—the way the light filters through the grass, the lines of the horizon, the silhouette of the city.

- Janelle Pietrzak

Creating some of her most exuberant pieces for All Roads yet, cactus blooms and golden wild flowers that carpet the desert floor are reimagined and brought to life in an exotic colour palette you can’t help but love.

Crafted by hand in the designer’s in-house Los Angeles studio, Janelle’s latest collection of textiles are made with the kind of precision and care that can (and will) stand the test of time.

A great day begins with… coffee with homemade almond milk.

The last song I listened to on repeat was… “More Than This” by Roxy Music.

I’m proud of… the community of designers and artists that I’m a part of.

I’ve always wanted to… to have a little shop with a studio in the back.

My dream dinner party guests include… designers Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman.

My most prized possession is… my vintage faded blue velvet sofa.

If I wasn’t an artist I’d be… a botanist.

The next place I want to travel to is… Mexico City.

Weekends are for… hiking and exploring.

Happiness is… creating, collaborating and enjoying nature.
