I am pleased to have been chosen by Obeetee to join a large list of architects and interior designers for the "Express" Program DIFFA X Obeetee Collection.

It is an incredible opportunity to help those less fortunate who are suffering from AIDS and to collaborate with the incredibly talented professionals in our industry while doing so. I have personally been involved in these types of events for many years through various organizations and I cannot express how happy I am to be a part of the Quick Ship "Express" Program by DIFFA Collection.

As a Latin American designer, my aim is to infuse my designs with happiness and a dose serenity.

My newest area rug design for the DIFFA x Obeetee collection was inspired by my latest trip to the Maldives this summer. It is a paradise of crystal-clear turquoise waters and white sandy beaches. To bring that beautiful landscape into this cause was inescapable. The islands' inviting and welcoming color palettes with its harmonious shades of blue and cream, grays and greens, creates such a calming effect. I wanted to share those magical waters with all of you... and to visually recreate the feeling of jumping into the warm Maldivian waters!

As grateful as I am for this opportunity, I trust the DIFFA X Obeetee Program will help many people in need and that this good cause will carry on for a very long time.
