Acworth, Georgia (September 6, 2022) – Jaipur Living will provide four interior design students from The Ohio State University with an all-expenses-paid trip to Miami to attend GATHER 2022, the national conference of the American Society of Interior Designers. In addition, these students will be granted ASID membership for one year.
“There are often conversations around the future of design. We want to help move forward by investing in the designers of tomorrow. Many students are just one opportunity away from greatness,” said Sasha Wallace, Marketing Director of Jaipur Living.
In addition to its vast collection of rugs, Jaipur Living also produces pillows, poufs and throws under strict ethical standards. NK Chaudhary founded Jaipur Rugs in 1978 working alongside nine artisans on two looms. He led the business with dignity, reversing age-old practices that had avoided employing the poor, women and artists, and with a commitment to fostering the age-old craftsmanship and artistry of handmade rugs. Today, led by Chaudhary’s daughters, Asha Chaudhary (CEO) and Archana Chaudhary (COO), Jaipur Living is recognized as an innovator in the world of design in partnership with talented designers and artisans from around the world.
GATHER, September 21-24, 2022, is an event created for all sectors of the interior design community, from students to practitioners, providing opportunities to learn and engage with relevant educational content. Students will have the chance to connect with each other and with mentors in the field while experiencing interactive programming and installations designed to encourage collaborations.
“On behalf of the Ohio State Department of Design, we are very grateful for Jaipur Living’s sponsorship of our students to attend the ASID GATHER conference. As a public university, many of our students come from diverse backgrounds and lack the resources to broaden their education.This sponsorship will give four students the opportunity to do just that while meeting professionals and making valuable connections that could shape their career paths said Rebekah Matheny, NCIDQ, IIDA, Associate Professor of Interior Design, Ohio State University.
