Ashley Stark is the Creative Director of STARK and the stylish namesake behind Ashley Stark Home. At an early age, she fell in love with the legendary carpet and textile company founded by her grandparents, which led to a life that immersed her in design, honed her eye, sharpened her sense of quality, and developed her inimitable style. Raised in New York City, Ashley has always felt that design is in her blood—and Ashley Stark Home is the natural evolution of her unique experience and her family’s venerable heritage brand.
In creating Ashley Stark Home, Ashley laid a strong foundation with her first love: rugs. She leaned into her irreverent design style and deep knowledge of craftsmanship to turn out a versatile, works-anywhere collection that is as unique as she is. It’s a collection that skillfully juxtaposes unexpected touches with classic elements that feel right in any setting, from a chic coastal retreat to an urban aerie or mountain town escape—and it couldn’t have come from anyone but Ashley. Then she applied her eye and curated a mix of fabulous goods to go with the rugs—tabletop, lighting, decorative objects, wallcoverings—all the vitals for making a room uniquely yours.
